DSTRYR/SG EXCLUSIVE: CHESS IS JIU JITSU FOR THE MIND. JIU JITSU IS CHESS FOR THE BODY.


We're super fortunate here at DSTRYR/SG.  Not only are we all extremely good look, we also have a way with people and make friends easily.  Ask anyone.  [Long, uncomfortable pause.]  Actually, we are just lucky and we remain completely fanatical about bringing anyone who stops by kick ass BJJ and submission grappling-related content.  It's what we do.  It's all we do. 

If you visit DSTRYR/SG much, you are familiar by now with the innovative (and very cleverly named) techniques Adisa Banjoko has created and shared with the grappling community (example 1, example 2, example 3).  Adisa is a grappler who's also a community activist; he reaches out to help young people through chess and Jiu Jitsu (and hip hop).  It can easily be said that both chess and Jiu Jitsu share similar concepts, strategies and theories (as we just did). 

Sit back and watch a Adisa's latest work, which first draws the comparison between Jiu Jitsu and chess via an example of chess strategy, and then illustrates the "chess" in Jiu Jitsu via an instructional on Adisa's Iron Hook position (with accompanying submissions).   Amazing stuff yet again from our friends and brothers in BJJ at HHCF.
