Jean Jacques Machado in Jiu Jitsu Magazine

Our friend Professor Jean Jacques Machado has a feature in this months Jiu Jitsu Magazine specifically on how to attack the turtle position via a series of chokes.  Two things I love about this article... one is the variety of chokes JJ offers, with variations I have not seen other places.  And the other is the constant inspiration Jean Jacques Machado offers all of us where a man with virtually no fingers, nor a functioning hand, can specialize in a variety of collar chokes.  He never let his birth defect EVER slow him down not hold him back.  Respect.

Jiu Jitsu Magazine Appearance

Yours truly got a quick shot in the latest issue of Jiu Jitsu Magazine (much thanks to my homie Kyle for finding it).  A pic of my promotion to brown belt with my coach Brian Johnson and his black belt Denise Holcomb, both of which have been the biggest influences on me both on and off the mat!

I will be at the BEST Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in Seattle, WA. NW Jiu Jitsu Academy all week and will have limited availability for pictures and autographs. Warm your wrists and come play!

I will get a copy tomorrow.  Shout out to Mike Velez the hardest working editor in grappling.  Thanks for the recognition brother.
