Welcome to Beyond Grappling
Hi, my name is Matt D’Aquino. I am a 3rd Degree Black belt, 2008 Beijing Olympian and an Ausrtralian submission Grappling champion. I have been studying Judo for 22 years and I absolutely love it to bits!
I practically live and breath Judo – every spare minute I am write articles for magazines, filming videos for the University of Judo or watching the latest competition online.
One of my personal goals is to make Judo one of the most popular sports in countries such as Australia, America, Canada and England. I have tried to achieve this by posting nearly 300 videos on YouTube as well as having sites that has so much content that it would take you a year to get through it all. I also written a few very popular eBooks including Workouts for Judo and Strength Training for Judo. Both of these eBooks have sold in over 50 countries and have helped thousands of Judo players feel the benefits of a Judo specific exercises and workouts.
In Jan 2013 I released an online private Judo community called the University of Judo which contains over 800+ Judo videos as well as access to me as your personal Judo coach so I helped out a stack of Judoka on there one on one.
In June 2013 I released Judo Training at Home which is a great product designed to help people do solo Judo drills as home to increase their Judo ability in the comfort of their own home – this is by far my best product and sooooo many people have told me how much their Judo co-ordination, footwork and speed has improved because of it.
Have a look around my site and if you have any questions regarding Judo, BJJ, fitness and conditioning please do not hesitate in contacting me HERE or by leaving a comment.
Yours in Judo,
