One of the things we like to do here at Bullshido is give back to the BS-free end of the Martial Arts community. So we'd like to introduce to all our fellow Bullies, Jiu Jitsu Style Magazine, a BS-free print publication run by friends of our humble website.

JIU JITSU STYLE MAGAZINE

Guest edited by BJJ sensation Roger Gracie, ‘Jiu Jitsu Style’ is a bi-monthly magazine aimed solely at what we love – Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We aim to provide the community with entertaining features, reviews and interviews wrapped up in scintillating design. The continuous growth of the gentle art has led to our commitment to encourage greater coverage for the sport and the practitioners within.

Jiu Jitsu Style has recruited a talented mix of photographers and journalists from around the world, helping to create premium quality content in every issue. Our interviews aim to show unrivalled insight into fighters’ lives, helping our readers form opinion and gain further knowledge.

Our ‘tournament reviews’ are designed to tell true stories via exceptional photography and informative writing, making sure readers gain a genuine perspective of every event we attend.

Jiu Jitsu Style ‘technique tutorials’ offer readers access to step-by-step instructions on some of the leading athlete’s favoured escapes, sweeps and submissions – proving valuable to both the novice and seasoned black belt.

The birth of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has had a huge impact of so many peoples’ lives – and its time to give something back. We intend to raise the profile of BJJ as a mainstream sport by informing and entertaining readers via a dedicated print media outlet.
Jiu Jitsu Style Magazine is available in print or digital via our website www.bjjstyle.com so check out the below links for more info.

Jiu Jitsu Style was conceived for the benefit of everyone who loves BJJ, so we are always open to your feedback, suggestions and opinions. Feel free to contact us at [email protected] with any queries regarding the magazine.

I've seen this magazine!
The thing I most remember about it are the extremely clear technical explanations with great photos. The diversity of writers is also noteworthy.

Yeah, my friend Seymour (Meerkat) is featured in it as well. I've been watching his FB page as it has developed.

There subscription thing doesn't make sense. You can either get issues 2-7 or issues 3-8. Huh? What about issues 1 and 2 also if you want to read issue 2 or issue 8 you have to get issues 3-7 twice.

As you yanks say, colour me confused.

Yeah, he knows Seymour (Meerkat) as well through BJJ.

Slidey does an excellent Blog on BJJ and legitimate training venues. Well done Slidey.

Thanks for the kind words. Yes, I write for the mag: I do the history piece, normally one or two interviews, and sometimes the reviews (depending what they send through: that's shared with Seymour and Callum, who did the reviewing for Issue 3, IIRC).

The print issue is probably a bit pricey for people in the US (although you can get it through Budovideos (http://www.budovideos.com/shop/customer/home.php?cat=851) now, priced at $10 when it's in stock), but you can also get it cheaper digitally, through either iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/jiu-jitsu-magazine/id423532769?mt=8) or something called PocketMags (http://www.pocketmags.com/viewmagazine.aspx?titleid=334&title=Jiu+Jitsu+Style+Magazine).
