Despite being relatively isolated from the jiu jitsu world on the tiny island of Trinidad, brown belt Rondel Benjamin has made some very astute observations about the training process and how to perfect it.

Rondel also talks about the similarities between free-diving and jiu jitsu. He explains how we can become more integrated beings and thus better jiu jitsu athletes.
