This is what it’s all about, grappleros. We were stoked when our brother in Jiu Jitsu, Hywel Teague of BJJHacks, approached us with a badass idea for a DSTRYR/SG article. For the sad and unaware, Hywel is the jet-setting BJJ filmmaker and journalist behind BJJHacks.com. We’ve featured several of their films before. Visit them often for killer BJJ films and read what Hywel has to say below. Go:
Let’s face it grappler, the closest you or I will get to elite status within the sport is stalking various BJJ’ers on the web. You don’t speak Portuguese so you can’t understand the back-and-forth on Twitter, and Facebook is just a non-stop stream of seminar ads.
Fear not! The biggest names in jiu-jitsu have finally discovered the iPhone photo-sharing app Instagram, leading to a non-stop stream of pics ranging from strength and conditioning sessions to plates of sushi.
We could wax lyrical about how inspiring it is to get such an intimate view into a champions day-to-day life, but we’re probably enabling an addiction that may or may not have already gotten you a restraining order (the one you keep next to that lock of Marcelo Garcia’s hair).
