My friend and training partner Brett Smith just launched his new website and blog titled The Ground Technician.    He will be offering information on wrestling, BJJ, MMA, and all competitive grappling events both local and worldwide.  Brett is on the cusp of attaining his purple belt and has a drive and passion for the competitive side of our art like no other.  This will be a stellar site to reference for all grapplers and competitors.

Double Dose of BJJ Scout

The powers that be over at BJJ Scout felt guilty for taking a week off, so us lucky followers get a double dose scouting reporting on Rodolfo Vieira's Guard Passing!  Rodolfo has an incredible guard passing game and can arguably be called the BEST pressure passer in the game today.  To read the entire analysis click here or to Check out part one of BJJ Scout's Guard Passing video study:
