Roger Gracie, winner of the 2007 Black Belt World Championship open and super heavyweight divisions.
The 2008 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Championships takes place this coming weekend in Los Angeles and The FightWorks Podcast breaks down everything a BJJ fan needs to know about our sport’s biggest event!
- Our first conversation will be a round table between FightWorks Podcast cohost Dan along with Gumby from OnTheMat.com. We’ll cover the names and details of the black belt divisions, setting the table for all the action!
- For our second conversation we’ll bring in noted BJJ author Kid Peligro, who will give us a historical perspective on the evolution of the Mundials as a competition! We’ll also go over what the biggest stories of this year’s Mundials are leading into the event.
If this episode were in a weight class, it would be the super super heavyweight division, as it is over one hour long!
As you will remember, back at the 2008 BJJ Pan-Ams, we got together for breakfast on Sunday. I’d like to do the same this weekend so keep your eyes here on the site this week for the location of breakfast and / or coffee on June 8th!
