The next instalment of The Grappling Dummy!
In this episode, I talk to Nic Gregoriades, a black belt under Roger Gracie.
Nic was kind enough to come down to our gym and give a BJJ workshop, and give his time to make this video.
We talk about what it's like to train with Roger Gracie, and about the Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood (an online BJJ community http://jiujitsubrotherhood.com/ )
We also have a little roll while Nic shares his philosophies on jiu jitsu.
After that, Nic does something a little different and offers a "shadow grappling" routine. Something simple that you can practice when you don't have a partner, that allows you to continue to work on your body skills.
Nic is a great guy and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him.

I was unashamedly inspired by E. Casey Leydon of All Elbows and MMA FIghting to edit this in black and white after his awesome Joe Rogan videos.
I hope you enjoy the video.
Many thanks to Fightlinker without whom The Grappling Dummy wouldn't exist.
