About Me


Hi, my name is David. I started this site as a blue belt, and now hold a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Off the mats, I am working on a doctorate in Forest Soil Microbial Ecology.

  2. Great blog David! Tried finding a contact to no avail, so wanted to invite you down to the Will – Meyer seminar: http://threeharmonies.blogspot.com/2011/07/will-meyer-bjj-seminar-seattle-wa.html

    Hi David,

    I just wanted to say that this is singularly the highest quality stuff available on the net full stop! The bios are incredible with full histories and videos and explanations of style and favorite techniques. Your technique peices are so indepth and your fight reviews are second to none.

    I would love to see you do reviews of famous fighters losses particularly submissions losses. For example when was the last time Rodolfo or Rafeal or Marcello or Roger was tapped out and how did it happen, what were their weakness and how were they exposed.

    Oh and would love to see some more bio’s maybe some heavier fighters like Roger or Faria or really anyone else you choose.

    Keep up the great work it is very much appreciated.

    Hi David,
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge, I learnt so much from your ‘escaping side mount’ post, probably my weakest position. I’ll spread the word around the club I go to.
    Cheers, Cass.

  9. Glad to see you still at it with your training. And thanks for the CSS help back in the day. You ever talk to them gnn guys anymore? – a gnn guy (guess who).

    I’ve only been training in BJJ for less than a month and I already have an infection and an injury under my belt! It’ll take more than that to keep this guy off the mats…
    Much love.
