Top Jiu Jitsu Blogs – 2019


It’s that time of the year again. Time to round up the list of my favorite jiu jitsu blogs from the year. These are blogs that I’ve found myself visiting often. A lot of these are repeated from the previous year, but good things bear repeating.

  • BJJ Eastern Europe
    This is one of the more well known jiu jitsu blogs on the web. Plenty of great content to peruse.
  • BJJ Spot
    This site is full of news, technique and gear reviews from around the web.
  • Jiu Jitsu Times
    This blog is a great mix of posting up-to-date jiu jitsu news, and funny jiu jitsu videos. I recommend following them on Facebook if you want to keep your feed interesting.
  • BJJ After 40
    This is the jiu jitsu blog of Mike Bidwell, a jiu jitsu black belt who spent 13 years at brown belt, and uses his story of going through that grind as an inspiration to the rest of us who are struggling through jiu  jitsu. He often has interesting, creative moves to share as well.
  • On The Mat
    This blog hosts a robust listing of articles and videos. I can browse around here for hours.
  • Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood
    This is the blog of Nic Gregoriades, author of The Black Belt Blueprint, creator of a variety of DVDs, and perhaps the most mellow personality in jiu jitsu. Always insightful to hear what he has to say on jiu jitsu and yoga.
  • Chewjitsu
    I really enjoy this blog. It’s run by Nick “Chewy” Albin, and he’s probably one of the most positive jiu jitsu content creators on the web. He has a lot of good inspirational material for people coming up through the ranks of jiu jitsu.
  • Bishop BJJ
    This one is probably a little more serious and literary than the other blogs listed here. Good to dive into this blog when you’re looking for a little more of a deep read.
  • BJJ Globetrotters
    Basically what it sounds like. Globetrotting jiu jitsu practitioners.  Be sure to check out their “Story” page to read up on what these guys are all about.
  • Grapplearts
    Stephan Kesting was one of the first people I discovered online when I began jiu jitsu. I signed up for his newsletters, subscribed to his YouTube channel and followed him on Facebook. Lots of good material here.
  • Submission Shark – The community portion of this site shares stories of jiu jitsu practitioners and how jiu jitsu has improved their lives. Very inspiring to read.
  • BJJ For Women
    Jiu jitsu blog focused on women who practice this sport.
  • Girls in Gis
    Girls in Gis is an organization that promotes women specific training around the United States. Check out their blog for more information.
