Welcome! This is my $5-a-month newsletter, I’m writing articles about improvement in Bjj, technical analysis, video breakdowns, and a Q and A session with my subscribers.

My name is Josh Vogel. I’m a Brazilian Jiujitsu Black belt under the Migliarese brothers at Balance studios in Center city Philadelphia. My goal with this is to help improve my subscribers, and my own understanding of Brazilian Jiujitsu through analysis. I want to help people of all levels of experience and keep an open dialogue with everyone so that the newsletter can evolve as I get to know my readers better. I figure that $5 a month is a fair price and I will also use this page to release free information as well from time to time. Thanks for your support everyone!
