About BJJ Blog

Welcome to BJJ Blog, your go-to resource for all things Brazilian jiu-jitsu and grappling. Whether you're a white belt or a seasoned black belt, we've got something for you.

Founded in 2022 by Justin Tagieff, a BJJ Blue Belt, BJJ Blog was created as a resource for practitioners of all levels. Jiu-Jitsu transformed Justin's life, and he wanted to create a way to give back to the community.

We started as a small blog and have grown into a comprehensive resource, aiming to create a network of microproducts that make your jiu-jitsu journey more accessible, enjoyable, and connected. Explore our first microproduct, The Gym Finder.

Our mission is to connect and educate people about Brazilian jiu-jitsu. We believe that jiu-jitsu is more than just a martial art—it's a way of life and a community that can positively transform your well-being.
