For the very first time ever we are making our Revised 2012 World Jiu Jitsu Case study available for free online (which includes our additional stats from the December issue of Jiu jitsu Magazine), and are providing unbridled access below. We don’t need an e-mail, name, phone number… nothing! You just click the report below, and pages of unprecedented jiu jitsu knowledge will be at your fingertips.
This entire project took Jena and I months of planning, film watching, and research to complete. The report itself still doesn’t accurately reflect all the intricacies of jiu jitsu competition that we learned while completing this project. However, our hope is that the 2013 studies will be even bigger and more powerful, with greater in-depth analysis. We’ve appreciated the tremendous feedback we’ve received from researchers that work for major universities, Google, Adobe, the government, scientific journals, and more. Neither Jena nor myself have degrees that merit true scientific study. This is a passion, and we originally started it to provide ourselves with an edge in competition strategies. The entire process got out of hand, and three months later we completed the Pan study – which we used to prepare for the 2012 Worlds. I can say unequivocally that using the information in this study has improved our competition jiu jitsu seven-fold.
In 2013 we plan to return to the “It’s Science” series with more in-depth competitor breakdowns along with several other new series that will focus on the statistical elements of jiu jitsu. Obviously, our largest projects this year will be the new studies. We want them to be bigger and better than ever – which means they will take even more time and energy than they did this year. We have had a ton of people that are far more qualified than ourselves volunteer to help us work on these projects (which is fantastic!!!). But, this all takes a lot of time and effort, so all of your feedback, support, and attention makes it fun to do what we do. Thank you for all of your support from the bottom of our hearts.
