As a teenager, Amit represented the Israeli National Team in competitions in Israel and around the world.  At the age of 18  he joined the IDF Special Forces and served as a Krav Maga instructor.

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.

UFC 200 imageThis is the UFC 200 Fight cast. If you missed the event know that it was hyped up like crazy and they probably spent millions promoting it. Yet, I think that this podcast is more exciting than the actual fights. SO, if you are watching the fights after the fact, why not listen to this podcast at the same time as we talk about politics and MMA as well as the usual banter.

Featuring Justin Pierrot of Eye of the Storm MMA podcast and UTKM Co-Founder Borhan Jiang.

In case you are wondering as to why a non-Martial Artist came on as a guest the answer is simple. As the description of the podcast says:

As such I hope to have more guests of the Academic nature to broaden the perspectives, opinions and knowledge you might gain from this podcast.

Todd Deane-Freeman and his kids at West Coast BJJ

In the world of BJJ much attention is given to the competitive black belt. In fact in martial arts so much attention is given to the top competitors. However, the reality is the majority of people who train martial arts are doing it for noncompetitive reasons. Enter the casual Black Belt. Todd Deane-Freeman is one such individual who attained his black belt after many years training under Don Whitefield. Todd roomed with Jonathan Fader during the 2015 West Coast BJJ Winter camp with Lucas Lepri in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii.
