Forget the golf course – security folks do Brazilian jiu-jitsu!
For whatever reason, there is a high proportion of infosec folks who train BJJ. The BJJ Smackdown is a chance for us to do what we love best – training jiu-jitsu – with our friends and peers in the industry when we get together at infosec and appsec security conferences like RSA and Blackhat. For the second year in a row OWASP AppSec California will offer its own Smackdown.
The event will take place at the academy of Shawn Williams, a 3rd degree black belt under the one and only Renzo Gracie. If you watch any IBJJF broadcasts, you’ll recognize Shawn as he’s one of the commentators! Shawn’s academy is holding open mat that evening and it’s close (~25 minutes) by Los Angeles standards.
