BTG 05 - Creonte

August 29, 2019

David and Robert discuss the origins, problems, and reasons for the contempt of the creonte - a term created by grandmaster Carlson Gracie to describe a person who switches teams. In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, being called a creonte is like having a scarlet letter on your back.

They also discuss different training regimens, such as altitude training vs using a training mask, levels of intensity of a wrestling practice versus MMA, and much more.
