Rob and Dave welcome the master of BJJ memes, Drew Weatherhead aka @BecauseJitsu on Instagram.

This podcast is all over the place, from talking about the importance of being able to laugh at yourself, the origin of memes, tips and tricks to becoming a better instructor and student, and why Robert failed to mention the true origins of BJJ being rooted in defending the earth from aliens every 6 years, lol!

BTG 43 - IBJJF Heel Hooks

BTG 43 - IBJJF Heel Hooks

October 15, 2020

Rob and Dave come back to talk about one of the biggest developments in recent BJJ history - the IBJJF allowing heel hooks in the brown and black belt divisions of no gi competition.

The two talk about all the implications of this move and how it can help the sport grow. Along the way, they discuss the pros and cons of active top class competitors making instructional videos and "giving away" their secrets to success - a phenomenon unique in the professional sporting world, the woes of being a big guy sparring little people, and why video games used to be more rewarding.

BTG 41 - Gilbert “Durinho” Burns

BTG 41 - Gilbert “Durinho” Burns

August 8, 2020

Dave and Rob return after a month long hiatus with UFC #1 Ranked Welterweight Contender Gilbert “Durinho” Burns.

Durinho was slated to fight UFC Champion Kamaru Usman on Fight Island, but unfortunately fell ill to COVID-19 and was replaced by Jorge Masvidal. Burns fills us in on how it felt getting sick and watching the fight from home.

He then shares a lot of his mental process – from preparing for a training camp, self talk, his motivation to fight, and much more. I believe this episode to be a great asset to any martial artist wishing to get a glimpse in the mind of one of the most exciting true mixed martial artists on the planet today.

BTG 40 - Robert Ingraham

BTG 40 - Robert Ingraham

June 18, 2020

Dave and Rob have a fun and informative chat with the creator of McDojoLife, featured on various media outlets, including the Joe Rogan Experience, Robert Ingraham to the podcast.

Robert didn't create the term McDojo, but he definitely refined it and has went on a campaign to identify schools that qualify to be labeled as such for the good of the people. He lists the 5 transgressions a martial arts academy can make to qualify for as a McDojo, and also the responsibility he has to make sure he doesn't target undeserving schools.

From no touch knock outs, pedophiles, fake black belts, or scam artists, Robert has seen them all, and shares stories of his encounters. He also goes into his upcoming documentary, and much more.

Just a fair warning, this episode has a good amount of cursing (not with any hostility), so if you got kids around, you might want to cover their ears. :)

BTG 37 - Mahamed Aly

May 28, 2020

Rob and Dave catch up with IBJJF Black Belt World Champion and all around stud Mahamed Aly. Many of us know him for his high flying throws, but in this interview, Mahamed reveals a humble and insightful martial artist looking to grow.

They start off the conversation going over his ADCC experience and working the rule set, before going deeper into the meaning of martial arts for him. From the search of happiness, how purpose changes during life, and what it takes to remain on top.

Mahamed also shares his goals with his social media followers, and how he hopes to be useful to the community he serves - a duty that many people have lost in the age of "what's it in it for me?" and people focusing on making money instead of making happiness.

Rob and Dave speak with former 2-time IBJJF Absolute World Champion Rodrigo "Comprido" Medeiros. They start off getting some history about Comprido and the formation of the Alliance team, followed by some funny childhood stories about him and Leo Veira, including the time they got in trouble with the police for a stolen fish.

As the first IBJJF Absolute champion to win by submission, especially with a foot lock, they talk about how the culture of cross training has changed dramatically over the years; from training in different disciplines to training in other academies.

They also get into the history of fixed matches in BJJ, how it was like coaching and training with Brock Lesnar, and what things Comprido would change in BJJ today.
