Here are a bunch of blogs I personally like to frequent put into categories. Most of these fit into multiple categories, and many don’t really fit at all. But I’m too OCD not to categorize. If I forgot to list your blog, please message me and remind me.
I include some comments about the blog if something pops into mind at the time of writing this page. I also include RSS feed links in case you want to subscribe to each.
By the way, blogs are sorted alphabetically. That’s also how I pick my friends: alphabetically. If your name starts with an an A or a B, we’re probably going to be close friends right away.
Ann Maria De Mars – RSS - World champion, PhD, and the mom of everyone’s favorite judoka and female MMA star Ronda Rousey. But the reason her blog is fun to read is that she is full of knowledgeable opinions, and is not afraid to tell you exactly what they are.
Matt Marcinek - RSS - Matt is one of the funnier grapplers out there. That reason alone is why I read his blog. But he also has a huge heart and an incredible competitive drive. He is a true cross trainer with a deep appreciation of both judo and jiu jitsu.
Dan Faggella – RSS – No one covers (using words, pictures, videos) the technical aspects of jiu jitsu better than Dan. His blogging output is incredible. If someone somewhere did a cool technique in competition (IBJJF, ADCC, UFC, etc), wait 1-2 days and you’ll see Dan write a 5 page description of it.
Josh Vogel - RSS – Josh is one of the most cerebral jiu jitsu players I’ve ever met. Basically he is very good at figuring out the art behind the art. His curiosity is endless, which makes for a very interesting read.
