David Avellan and Robert Drysdale sit down to talk about one of the most debated points in BJJ: the importance of training in the gi for MMA and no-gi competition.
They also go on a few rants about what it means to be a black belt, social media influence on martial arts culture, and why being the best fighter is not the end goal of the martial arts.
