My name’s Ignacio Gondra and I’m a humble 1 stripe white belt (but evolving) trying to make sense of this super-power called Jiu-Jitsu. Having spent my years learning how to box, and loving the combat sports as I do, I decided it was time to get into the rabbit hole of this wonderful art of destruction.

This website tries to keep alive, organized and fresh the appallingly valuable snippets of wisdom that John Danaher drops on his social nets daily (or almost).

I thought this extremely good content needed some organization and searching capabilities – and here is my attempt at doing it. I hope you like the result.

If you have any suggestion to improve the site, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line at Thank you!
