Mundial 2012 Live Broadcast
The 2012 World Jiu Jitsu Championships live broadcast is about to commence! This year, we will be able to be the directors of our own streaming and decide which mats to follow (all 10 of them!), so the 2012 edition of the BJJ Worlds should be a hoot. For those with team mates, or just plain interested in seeing what the lower belts are producing, there is a special package for you. The black belts start on Saturday and if you only want to see them, there is a package for that as well. Below is a break down of how it works.
