I wrestled (“wrestled”, get it? I kill me!) with different ways to title this poll. Here were some variations I had in mind:
If You Could Spend a Week Training with One of These BJJ Greats, Which Would You Choose? That’s too long, and only addresses training, when I wanted to get more at which one people like on and off the mats.
Whose BJJ Do You Like the Most? That’s a nice idea, but as before, I wanted to also address their personalities as well.
In the end I chose the not-very-formal use of the term “BJJ Crush”. You know what I mean… we’re all fanboys / fangirls in some way right? I picked the names Marcelo Garcia, Rickson Gracie, and Roger Gracie because I think historically they’ve captured the most overall collective interest among Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners out there. If there’s someone you think I should have included on the list, let us know in the comments!
