Podcast #136 Competition Nerves in Jiu-Jitsu

OntheMat.com proudly presents the FightWorks Podcast! The top Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Grappling, and MMA Podcast on the Net!

www.thefightworkspodcast.comMan we have so much Brazilian jiu-jitsu to talk about on The FightWorks Podcast this time. In addition to a special co-host this time around, we have three segments for you.

Show me anyone who has ever entered a Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition and I will show you someone who has been totally freaked out. This week we bring you the first half of an interview with Chris Moriarty, a World Champion brown belt competitor from Alliance Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Coached by Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti, Moriarty has loads of jiu-jitsu competition experience at the highest level and will share tips and techniques he uses to calm his nerves before fighting in BJJ tournaments.

Gethin Aldous is the producer and director of the upcoming movie Renzo Gracie: Legacy. Aldous will bring us all the details about the film, which covers the last ten years of the life of one of jiu-jitsu’s biggest personalities.

Cohost of The FightWorks Podcast and I will reminisce a bit about the birth of our humble BJJ internet radio show. We turned three years old this week!

We close out the show by answering listener email about getting sponsorships for BJJ competitors, and how to find the best jiu-jitsu gi.
