Submission Shark BJJ Interview
Chris has an impressive background in break dancing and I think it was amazing to see how the two cultures relate and how the movements from this type of dance can help improve your jiu-jitsu movements. Make sure you read the full article to get a better understanding of how the lessons you learn from break dancing can translate well into jiu-jitsu.
I remember hearing Joe Rogan talk about how Eddie Bravo's best students are breakdancers and they pick up the techniques surprisingly fast. Other great examples of break dancers that are also great jiu-jitsu practitioners are Tony Ferguson. His loose and unpredictable movements are a prime example of how having loose hips from break dancing can benefit your fight game. Have other sports helped you in your jiu-jitsu game?
