We sat down with Jon Satava to talk about developing a butterfly and x guard game under Marcelo Garcia, his start in BJJ, the varied teaching styles at Marcelo’s Academy, learning tactics alongside technique, how he thinks you should learn from instructionals, how Bernardo Faria used to train and prepare, and more.
Find Jon’s series The Modern Butterfly Guard No Gi and The Modern No Gi X Guard here. To learn more great Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Techniques, visit https://www.bjjfanatics.com.
BJJ Fanatics was started by a pair of black belts (Bernardo Faria & Michael Zenga) who feel that nothing is more important than improving your BJJ skills as much as possible in the least amount of time. Their aim was to create a shop for BJJ Students who don’t look at BJJ as a sport – but as a lifestyle.
