Planet BJJ!

If you're searching for a club in the far corners of the globe, planning your worldwide Jiu Jitsu tour, then look no further than

The site is the brainchild of Jack Wiltshire who has this to say about the website:-

'The idea first came to me when I was looking for a BJ club to train at when visiting Spain. I searched the web for ages and eventually gave up. So I created with the aim to become the biggest online resource for BJJ clubs. The need for such a system became apparent very quickly when hundreds of people took to the site to upload their club information; I proactively sourced information on clubs. 

It was only later that week, when I logged into the system to find a club had been added in the south of Spain right where I was going to be on holiday. Who'd have thought it? I actually found a place to train in when on holiday, on my own website.

Here is a list of things you can do on the site:

1. Add club listing
2. Rate a club
3. Search for clubs
4. Buy the PlanetBJJ Gi when it comes out, which is scientifically proven to improve your sex life.

So what are you waiting for folks?  Make sure you buy this Gi, your partner will be most pleased!

If you would like to get your club listed on the site, go to, or email

Stop that pesky elbow in thigh!

It's pretty safe to say that some where in our early Jiu Jitsu days, we've been guilty of applying the elbows in the thighs of your training partner or competition opponent in a last ditch attempt to open their guard.  It's also safe to say that we've all had it done to us at some point.

I recall training at a gym in Rossendale, back in the mists of time, when I was a blue belt, with a very good friend from Uni; after a few rounds of rolling, the instructor, with grave seriousness, told us all it was time for 'pressure point sparring', which of course included elbow in thighs and pretty much elbows in every part of the body.  

Try it out in class sometime.

Happy memories indeed.

In a bid to combat this deadly guard attack, Stephan Kesting shows you a number of ways to counter, so watch and learn...........

A slice of BJJ history...........

A very interesting read on your Jiu Jitsu origins; had the pleasure of training with a student from the Fadda lineage, one Gabriel Kitober back when I was a purple belt. 

Something to read on your lunch break.
