Do you compete in Brazilian jiu-jitsu? Have you ever faced an opponent from Brazil? It can be tough when your opponent and his coach are communicating in Portuguese trying their best to make sure you get caught in a BJJ submission!
This week on The FightWorks Podcast, we get the inside scoop from Alex Brandao. Brandao is a black belt in BJJ under Fabio Santos from Porto Alegre, Brazil and often serves as a referee at the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation’s championships. He will share what some of the common things are that we may hear in Brazilian Portuguese from opponents during BJJ competition and what they are in English. Don’t compete again before listening to Brandao’s advice!
It’s also time to go over some annual business around here. Dan and I will also discuss the Best BJJ Blog of 2007, and go over some of our listeners’ BJJ resolutions for the new year!
