BJJ Vocabulary in Portuguese and English

If you practice and compete in BJJ, you probably already heard some expressions in Portuguese that you wish you knew what they meant.

Well, the guys from the The Fightworks Podcast came up with a big list of BJJ expressions in Portuguese and their translation in English.

Check out at:

Some corrections (or new words) from me:
bota pra baixo: put him down
vale tudo: MMA (people call MMA as vale tudo in Brazil)
raspada: sweep
raspa ele: sweep him
derruba: put him down

Nice Blog for BJJ Vocabulary in Portuguese English. It is the vocabulary deficit that remains the educational sticking point for lower performers, though some inroads have been made.
