Episode 21 – Women in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu w/ Cris Rodriguez


Hello Friends!  This episode is the continuation of the conversation I (@Dionsmusica) had with Cris Rodriguez (@grlnxdr2513) back in February.  Cris is a former EMT, currently working in a hospital in the Chicagoland area. Chicago has an amazingly active and vibrant Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community, that even includes stars at the pinnacle of the Mixed Martial Arts activity. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to talk about Chicago Jiu Jitsu for any length of time with previous guests, so I was intrigued to hear about Cris’ BJJ journey, as well as her perceptive on the activity and sport as a female in a male dominated culture. Cris was vibrant and forthcoming, and offered tons of insight.  Check it out!!!
