Hey Daniel (Daniel Rodriguez, aka DaRod), this is Kris from BJJ Legends, Jiu-Jitsu Magazine, John Lamonica introduced us at the Pans. Your the guy who do the crazy sky jitsu videos. Will you do a little interview with us? We've got some questions.
DaRod: Sure, yeah, Hello! So just a little back story on the birth of Sky Jitsu. I met George last year when he moved to LA from Florida. He was looking for a Jiu Jitsu gym to train at and found us here at Street Sports in Santa Monica. That very day we also found out that we both had an interest in skydiving as well. I had already over 100 jumps and George was at the beginning stages of learning to fly solo, so it was funny that not only was I giving him jiu jitsu lessons but skydiving tips as well.
Every September, there is a sky diving boogie at our home dropzone in Lake Elsinore called Chicks Rock. In addition to a weekend of skydiving, they have a costume party so me and George brought our gi's for the party. The next morning we decided to skydive with our gi's on and try to perform a technique in the sky. Sky Jitsu was born.
BJJ: Where's the camera? What kind of camera are you using?
