PPP08: Starting a BJJ Revolution with Andrew Smith

February 25, 2020

It was a great opportunity to speak with Andrew Smith, Third Degree Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) Black Belt and Co-owner of Revolution BJJ in Richmond, Virginia. During our almost two hour conversation we learn of Andrew's history with BJJ, BJJ's growth in America since the 1990's, building a business from the ground up, creating a unique grappling tournament and paying it forward through new instructor growth and online presence.

Check out these resources and if you're in the Richmond, Virginia area stop by one of Revolution BJJ's locations.
