“I didn’t care about what would happen. He might win the match, but he could never beat me. I was living my dream, traveling the world with complete freedom. Nothing could put me down. The play button was pressed again. My opponent took my back and I tapped to a bow and arrow choke. I laughed and shook his hand, as I stood back up. I was out of the competition. Everything was perfect. Life couldn’t be better.”

After a training partner commits suicide, Christian Graugart feels obliged to do something with his life. Starting his own gym, dedicating almost all his time to the art of BJJ, alters everything, including the way he sees himself.

The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Globetrotter is not only a story about traveling and training in martial arts. It’s about all the things that can happen to you if you choose to truly stay alive until you actually die.

What the readers are saying

"This is a must read for all combat sport practitioners. Especially if you do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It gives insights into BJJ culture around the world and Christian does a great job of making you feel like you are right there with him on his epic journey. Brilliant story telling and humour. I'm reading for a second time now."

"Christian brings his experiences to life in so many ways in this book. Who hasn't wanted to head out and travel the world doing what they love. Even if I am not able to do it on my own I gladly will share Christian's experiences."

"I had the privilege to train with Christian and CSA.dk during my stay in Denmark couple of years back. His passion for BJJ shine through the reading and you really get a clear image of what he went through. This book should be read by every BJJ practitioner. Fantastic reading the whole way through... and I usually can't finish a book!"

"I met Christian on the first destination of his trip in Paris. From then on I followed his progress through his blog and eventually got to see Christian again in Copenhagen. When he mentioned to me that he wrote this book, I bought it expecting it to be a badly written book about a pretty awesome subject, his trip. It was much more than that. This book is a manifesto. It really is, it tells you in a not-so-cheesy way that you have dreams, and it's time for you to make them happen. And I'm not talking about becoming filthily rich and getting on a cocaine rampage with whores and champagne. I'm talking leaving your home and finding zen wherever life can take you, and wherever you feel like it. Beyond that, BJJ globetrotter is a great, well written and well structured, It lacked a few illustrations, but you can find them in the old Christian's blog. A must read for anybody."

"Part travelogue, part autobiography; "The BJJ Globetrotter" describes two journeys: One is Christian Graugart's journey travelling around the world, teaching and training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a variety of well-known and obscure locations, meeting and connecting with hundreds of people. The other is his journey as a martial artist and as a human being. From a prodigious child, to troubled adolescent, on to self-realized man and, finally, BJJ Globetrotter, the author gives us an insight into everything leading up to his decision to take his journey around the world. Both stories are told with a great deal of honesty and introspection, making this book much more than just a travel-book. It's a story of personal growth through travel, of seizing the day and breaking out of the traditional patterns of society, in order to pursue one's dreams. This book will inspire you to take a long, hard look at your life and ask yourself: "Am I living my life to the fullest?""

"The idea of traveling all over the world to train BJJ, meet people from all walks of life and experience new things is a dream come true for anyone who has a genuine desire to learn and experience life in it's rawest form. Christian chronicles just that along with an honest and brave flash back of his childhood and humble beginnings of his gym, CSA.dk in Denmark. Many parts of the book had me laughing as well! The book is a combination of a backpacking adventure, Christian's admiration for every one he met along the way, unique drunken moments that made for entertaining stories, and a compelling message that sums it all up: We are all one, everyone is equal on and off the mat. I highly recommend this book!"
