NEW VIDEO: Rolling With the Opposite Sex

April 30, 2014

Jiu-Jitsu Has Not Yet Served it's Most Important Purpose

Rener and Eve made a promise to refrain from working while on their honeymoon. Not surprisingly, they broke that promise. In this important video, they discuss how even though more women are training jiu-jitsu than ever before, the training culture at most academies is preventing women from getting the maximum benefit that jiu-jitsu has to offer. They give their thoughts on the least desirable training partners - Smashers, Stenchers, Senseis, and Snipers - and explain what it will take to bridge the gap. Bottom line: If women are not provided an optimal way to learn the art, then jiu-jitsu has not yet served it's most important purpose. Watch it, share it, live it!
