Javier Mendez: BJ Penn Was Incredible To Teach

“B.J. got introduced to me through Bobby Southworth, who was friends with B.J. when B.J. started practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu at Ralph Gracie’s in Mountain View. But, he came to me to train because he knew I trained Frank Shamrock. B.J. was incredible to teach. Everything I taught him, he picked it up as though he had known it forever. His level of progression was one of the best I have ever trained. What I think he learned from me is how to run his own training camp.”
