Jonathan at Rob's school in Nanaimo with other visting students

Jonathan with Rob and other Visting students.

Rob Biernacki is a BJJ black belt who can often be seen alongside Stephan Kesting, (who we dad a podcast with back on episode 19 a long time ago.) on his Youtube Channel that supplements grapplearts.com. Since his first appearance on Stephans channel, Rob has the unfortunate luck of losing his school due to a fire. He has since then, come back bigger stronger and maybe faster with a new school in the same City of Nanaimo BC. Rob is well known for his ideas on a conceptual approach to BJJ both in practice and teaching. He recently launched a new online academy where everything you would learn at his school can be learned online (assuming you train BJJ under an appropriate instructor). His online academy can be found at www.bjjconcepts.net  or you can check out his school’s webpage at www.islandtopteam.com. If you are one of the many possibly millions of people who find BJJ a monumental task to understand Rob’s concepts and ideas might be the place to start as he has simplified the approach to jiu-jitsu using fundamental universal concepts. You can also find Rob on Instagram @islandtopteam.  To top it off, Rob was voted #1 BJJ instructor in Canada and #3 in the world in 2014.
