Sandro “Batata” Santiago in the blue gi works a sweep on an opponent.
This week on The FightWorks Podcast we speak with Sandro “Batata” Santiago, a black belt under Roberto “Gordo” Correa. Among several topics, Batata talks about common mistakes that Brazilian jiu-jitsu beginners make, as well as the care one should use when selecting a place to learn BJJ. Batata has been training Brazilian jiu-jitsu seventeen years and began when a friend who knew jiu-jitsu showed him that his early kickboxing experience was not enough to truly defend himself.
Cohost of The FightWorks Podcast Dan and I will also share a story or two about accidental bumps and bruises one gets when rolling with partners. Or in the case of my story, bumps and bruises I have recently accidentally given others.
