A Private for the Price of One Coffee

Josh Vogel is a jiu jitsu guru, so when he announced that he will review your tournament video for $5, I jumped on the opportunity. He analyzed two videos of mine (check out one of them) and it gave me a lot to think about and work on.

I especially like that his analysis wasn’t “You should quit jiu jitsu because you clearly suck. Please stop.” Instead, he took every situation in the video seriously, highlighting problems areas, provided a bunch of technique options, and discussing general strategy.

I highly recommend that you send Josh one of your competition videos, while he’s giving it away for so cheap.

The benefit I got from analyzing just two videos made me realize that I want to make this a regular part of my competition process. It’s important to analyze your competition footage, but there’s only so much you can do on your own. You need another set of eyes, preferably those of an expert.

Josh noticed a lot of things that I didn’t even consider to be options. Both matches I sent him were losses, because of course I don’t want to ever lose the same way twice. For that, you have to find where you went wrong, and drill those positions until the mistake is much less likely to happen again.

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen a “Regards” in a blog comment. Sounds very official. Lol. Thanks again for the great advice.

      Respectfully yours,
