Elias and Laura - creators of BJJ for Nerds


We at BJJ for Nerds welcome readers of all backgrounds, whether you’re a seasoned black belt or someone who has never set foot on the mats. Our goal is to share as much as we can about learning and improving your jiu-jistu in a blog format. We will explore different ideas or concepts that you can apply to all positions, and hope to help you unravel the underlying principles that make them effective. We’

As a blog focused on conceptual learning strategies, we won’t be providing traditional technique demonstrations through text alone. We believe that videos are more effective for that purpose. Instead, our primary goal is to offer insights that will enhance your jiu-jitsu even when you’re away from the mats. By exploring different approaches to training and engaging in conceptual learning, you can continue developing your skills from home.

Beyond technique, we also delve into various aspects of jiu-jitsu culture and are open to discussing any topics that interest our readers. Feel free to send us a message and let us know what you’d like us to cover! For now, we plan to focus our energy on the blog posts and fleshing them out as much as possible, but eventually we would like to add helpful pictures or videos to better illustrate the given topic, so check back often for updates!

Is it really just for nerds?

Now, let’s address the “nerds” aspect. Whether you’re a programmer, have geeky hobbies, or none of the above, we believe that jiu-jitsu eventually turns everyone into a sort of nerd once they truly become passionate about it. Or maybe once they experience enough humbling moments on the mats (we’ve all been there! 😅). So, even if you started out as more of a jock and have since embraced your inner BJJ nerd, we welcome you with open arms! Besides, if you find yourself searching for more reading material on BJJ or martial arts after training, let’s face it, you’re probably a nerd…

…because being a nerd encompasses much more than coding, gaming, or sci-fi comics. It revolves around a profound passion for knowledge, an insatiable curiosity for understanding complex systems, and a relentless pursuit of efficiency and strategy. These very attributes lie at the heart of jiu-jitsu, and it’s this intersection between the nerdy mindset and the (sometimes not) gentle art of jiu-jitsu that we celebrate and explore in our blog.
