Dec 23, 2020

Is there such a thing as "American Jiu-Jitsu"? A term that divides opinion, the USA and Brazil's best grapplers and coaches speak on this polarizing topic. 

Technical innovators such as John Danaher and Keenan Cornelius offer their thoughts on whether the art has truly taken a new path, and respected champions Xande Ribeiro and Robert Drysdale offer their unique perspectives. We also speak with one of the first men to use the phrase American jiu-jitsu, Jake Shields, who helps us understand the history behind the movement.
