Rob and Dave come back to talk about one of the biggest developments in recent BJJ history – the IBJJF allowing heel hooks in the brown and black belt divisions of no gi competition.
The two talk about all the implications of this move and how it can help the sport grow. Along the way, they discuss the pros and cons of active top class competitors making instructional videos and “giving away” their secrets to success – a phenomenon unique in the professional sporting world, the woes of being a big guy sparring little people, and why video games used to be more rewarding.
