One of the great things about our Gracie Jiu Jitsu is that even if you are injured you can still modify your training and still be able to practice. At Gracie Sydney Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) we will sometimes simulate ‘injuries’ during our rolls to give students a different experience when rolling. When you take away something you are used to relying on while training it means you have to suddenly find new ways to train. Here students show several different types of ‘injury training’.

On the latest episode of Rolled Up, Budo Jake did a nice interview with Master Royler Gracie. They talk about the Gracie Diet over breakfast, review about some history while looking at mementos from Royler’s long competition career, and, of course, do some Jiu Jitsu on the mats in Royler’s garage.
