This upcoming tuesday, April 19th, starting at 7pm, Valko BJJ will host a special Judo class! Teaching the class will be Olympic Judoka Andreas Toelzer and RJ Cohen.
This is an extremely rare occasion and should not be missed! The cost is $10 for Valko BJJ students and $15 for guests. Don’t miss the rare opportunity to train with one of the best Judo practitioners in the world!
When I went up to visit New Breed BJJ, I had the chance to sit down with Nick Mitria, the owner of Subculture. You’ve probably seen his gis at every single tournament and in every single gym in the Chicago area.
I really wanted to interview Nick because I think that I am the only person at my academy who doesn’t own a Subculture gi. Thankfully, he had a while to sit down for an interview. Thanks again Nick!

Unless something else crazy happens, I will be visiting New Breed Chicago on Wednesday!
HUGE thanks to Mark Vives for being so accommodating and e-mailing back and forth with me.
Great to see yet another Chicago instructor who cares so much about Jiu-Jitsu!
If you train at New Breed, make sure you find me and say hi on Wednesday!

I had an excellent experience last night at Valko BJJ. Big thanks again to Jay, Allen, Allen, TK, Matt, George, and the rest of his team for graciously allowing me to visit.
A proper review will be posted this weekend.
