#021 - Adisa Banjoko

This week on the show we are joined by a Brown Belt under @gumbyotm training at @heroesmartialarts in San Jose, California. 

Adisa has been around BJJ since the early ’90s having started training after watching the original Gracie tapes. Subsequently, he trained under @ralphgracie and Charles Gracie.

Adisa has some awesome stories from coming up with legends in the sport like @bjpenn and @davecamarillo. He even lost his job so he could go to interview Helio Gracie. 

Adisa also has a great podcast @bishopchronicles where he discusses BJJ and his other passions such as his faith, philosophy, chess, hip hop and health. Be sure to check it out if only for the legendary Jiu Jitsu Haikus.
