Here we go my friends! An episode with Tim Sledd about the taboo topics of BJJ. I can’t think of anyone else that I would like to hear from about these controversial topics than Tim. Tim spent countless hours as a hard working successful lawyer, he left this career path to pursue BJJ. Tim’s opinions of these taboo topics are well thought out and he defends them well.

We talk about:

  • Washing your belt
  • The history of belts in martial arts
  • How dirty your belt might be
  • Belt whipping and gauntlets
  • Hazing students and the law
  • Throwing students for a belt promotion
  • How to avoid hazing
  • What is a creonte
  • Why you might leave your BJJ school
  • Cross training with different schools
  • Signing a contract to train BJJ
  • Dating within the gym
  • Using the phrase “go to war” for BJJ or MMA
