Customer Reviews

Fantastic App!

This is a fantastic app! I recommend this for anyone looking for high quality BJJ instruction delivered as a set of easy to follow videos. Stephan, thank you for putting this together. I'm a judo guy who needs help on the ground and your app has been a great help. Instruction on numerous submissions from a variety of positions (closed guard, half guard, side mount, etc.) are provided. You then go a step further and provide a button labeled "Keys to this Submission" where greater details are covered. I also subscribe to your newsletter where you have covered, among many topics, how critical it is to have a qualified instructor. You definitely fit that bill and this app demonstrates that. Thank you and I look forward to further advice via your e-mail newsletters.


I'm disappointed that such information needs to have an explicit label. I expected more guys! I love the info but I want it in a more professional format.

Favorite BJJ Podcast

Grapplearts Radio is by far my favorite podcast on bjj. The interview with David Meyer helped me win second place in my first ever bjj tournament, and the interview with Jon Chaimberg helped me train for it. Stephan, I know you warned us that you would only do these every now and again, but I humbly ask that you to produce more frequently. Even if you don't have anyone interesting to interview.
