He’s back! Dave Camarillo of Guerrilla Jiu-Jitsu fame has returned to the audio home of Brazilian jiu-jitsu this week. Camarillo started his career as a judoka, training under his father in the judo-rich area of northern California. Later Camarillo started training Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Ralph Gracie alongside other jiu-jitsu names like BJ Penn and Gumby & Scotty from OnTheMat.com. As his career progressed, his significant judo experience and aggressive offense made for some wild highlight reels.
Today Dave Camarillo is a coach to UFC fighters and runs his own Brazilian jiu-jitsu school. In today’s conversation with Chris Simamora we learn about the difference between grappling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, what being a martial artist means, and much more.
