I haven’t been able to post at all this week. I’ve been on the road for work. I had hoped that at least one night this week I’d be able to get in a practice at a school near where I was. I even scoped out the two school I hoped to visit, Underdog Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Royce Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. But as luck would have it things didn’t work out. I was bummed and feeling Jiu Jitsu withdrawals until a co-work of mine turned me on to Gi Subs 1, a iPhone application that shows gi submissions by iFightVideo.com. It wasn’t as good as doing it but while I sat on the plane I could go over a whole bunch of new gi submission all for $2.99. Once again saved by the iPhone and a enterprising Jiu Jitsu teacher. I got researching and found two No-gi applications for the iPhone by the every popular Grapple Arts. One is on sweeps and the other on submissions. They were a dollar more expensive then Gi Subs 1 but its cheap entertainment compared to the $14 the airline wanted to watch one of their movies in flight. Plus it goes with me know when ever I have my iPhone with me. After I had my fill of watching submissions on my iPhone I turned to my old stand by GRACIEMAG. I had the July 2009 issue detailing the 2009 World Championships. I never get tired of watching or reading about Roger Gracie, not to mention Marcelo Gracia. All of this combined I survived the business trip hungry but not starving for BJJ. I might also not may Mundial #5 Atama was waiting for me when I got home. I’ll have a review on it this next week after I use it in practice.
Jiu Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu Jitsu
