Best BJJ Blog of 2008: ShogunHQ.com

trophies

The results are in! 182 voters from across the globe have voiced their opinions, and declared Denmark’s ShogunHQ.com the Best BJJ Blog of 2008!

In last year’s piece on the Best BJJ Blog of 2007, I mentioned how important I think it is that the Brazilian jiu-jitsu community take advantage of blogging as a means of fostering an online community that mirrors the great camaraderie that we feel when we are out there on the mats training jiu-jitsu. I think the fact that there were around thirty nominations for the 2008 award is evidence that the community of BJJ bloggers online is growing, which is awesome.

Congratulations to ShogunHQ.com’s Christian Graugart and to our second place winner, Luke Chaya of BJJ-Asia.com.
