If you are a regular reader, then you know that I conducted a 3 month study on “street fights” and “ground fighting.” The results were published in the September 08 issue of Black Belt Magazine and was titled “Grounded in Reality.” (You can also read my analysis of the research here.)
I am now conducting research on people’s experiences in BJJ and other grappling arts. I believe that there are a lot of great stories out there and hope to explore in-depth why BJJ is so captivating. I have contacted some of you personally and have been very pleased with the responses you have provided.
This survey is open to all grapplers. So If you would like to participate in this brief survey (6 open-ended questions and 8 demographic questions, i.e, age, belt rank, etc.), so you can share your experience with others, I would be grateful to hear from you. Also, feel free to share this information with others.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please place BJJ Study in the Subject Line so I can give it prompt attention and send you a survey.
