The goal of BishopBjj.com has always been to expand and empower the jiu jitsu community with knowledge and data. We want to emphasize the science and art of jiu jitsu in fun and exciting ways.
While the site includes our namesake and is a resource for individuals seeking more information about Tyler and Jena and their contributions and involvement in jiu jitsu, this site has served as a resource for BJJ competition research and data collection for the last decade. In fact, we were the first ones to post breakdown videos of individual players games on YouTube (something that has become very popular since).
We want to highlight what makes jiu jitsu so calculated, but also what makes it so much fun. Our vision is that the studies, videos, and material we produce will ultimately go towards the collective benefit of the field (everyone who visits).

“Jiu Jitsu is more than just a sport, it’s our ministry. Jiu Jitsu is how we feel that we can impact the world in a righteous and uplifting way. We want to be the best competitors in the world, but also wish to use jiu jitsu as a tool to positively affect the lives of others. We want to share, teach, utilize, and practice the best jiu jitsu in the world with the best people in the world- that is our mission.”
