Podcast launch week continues with another daily episode! Yesterday was Submission-Only vs Points. This time I show my love for the much maligned bigger, stronger opponents. Us weaklings are always crying about you, but big guys want to learn jiu-jitsu too.

How to Defeat the Smaller, Weaker Opponent

Listen to “How to Defeat the Smaller, Weaker Opponent” on SoundCloud

Here is the Stephan Kesting video I mention in the podcast: How to Defeat the Smaller Opponent

Thanks for your support!

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far to help cover the costs of hosting the new podcast! To contribute, please follow the link on this page to PayPal. A few donors have sent in their own questions, and I’ve got them at the top of my list to record next. (Up first: how to make the best out of a grappling club while stationed in Iraq.) The podcast currently has no sponsors or commercials, and I’d like to see how long I can keep it that way, but I’m also jobless. That is why I’m asking for donations like a NPR host.

This is what your donations will help me do:

  • Upgrade to SoundCloud Pro Unlimited for $132/year
  • Get listed in iTunes, Stitcher, Instacast, etc. for easier subscriptions
  • Transcribe podcasts for easy reading
  • Buy higher quality recording equipment
  • Cover the costs of hosting and maintaining aesopian.com
  • Fund upcoming secret projects like new ebooks, videos, surveys and BJJ websites!

If you feel like any of those are worth supporting, please go here to make a donation. Any amount is appreciated! I’ve been running this site for free since 2006 just because I love sharing my enthusiasm for BJJ, and your donations will help me keep it that way!

After listening, please let me know how you’re liking the podcast! I’m new to this and any feedback–positive or negative–will help a lot! Thanks!
