Grapple Tactics

The most efficient path to the
best grappler you can be.

What’s up, guys?

My name’s Nick, and I’m a Brazilian jiu-jitsu purple belt who happens to write helpful content for a living. Grapple Tactics is a place for me to leverage both of my skill sets in service of the grappling community.

Since I’m not a professional black belt competitor, I don’t spend too much time on my technique opinions, like the best way to finish a guillotine (it’s with a high wrist). Instead, I address the issues and questions you’ll have on the path to skill development, like:

  • Which jiu-jitsu gym should I visit when I go to San Diego?
  • What submissions should I study at this point in my training?
  • Is it worth buying Gordon Ryan’s latest BJJ Fanatics instructional?

Whether you’ve been rolling for years or never so much as stepped on a mat, I’m here to help you become the best grappler you can be – as quickly and efficiently as possible.
