ABOUT STEPHAN KESTING AND GRAPPLEARTS.COM My name is Stephan Kesting and I’ve been doing martial arts for more than 37 years. The grappling arts have been my main focus for about 25 of these years, and now I’m a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, and also a certified instructor in Erik Paulson’s Combat Submission Wrestling. In addition to the grappling qualifications I’m also a black belt in Kajukenbo Karate, an instructor in Dan Inosanto’s Jun Fan JKD, Maphalindo Silat and Filipino Martial Arts program. I’ve studied Japanese Judo, Russian Sambo, various Chinese Kung Fu systems, Brazilian Capoeira, Muay Thai Kickboxing, and many other martial arts. I’m not bringing up those qualifications to boast. The reason I mentioned them is to establish that I’ve been around the scene, trained with a lot of different people, and have a good understanding of the challenges that grapplers face on the mats everyday. I know quality, and can recognise stuff that really works when I see it. Grapplearts is my company and we’ve been online since 2002. That’s a long time, and we’ve produced a ton of instructional products, continuously refining how the material gets taught and presented in order to make it easier to learn. The goal is to get you the best information in the easiest to learn format, period!
Do yourself a favor if you train and download his podcasts and for the love of god use his apps. By far the best instructional as on the market!!! I have a wife, 2 kids, 2 jobs (professional firefighter/real estate agent), and take care of my parents. I don’t have the time to train as much as I would like and I’ve literally lost count of the number of techniques I’ve learned and actually used on the mats from Stephans apps. Be safe out there and go train
I have been extremely happy with Stephan Kesting’s instructional content offered online and through this application. Within the application, skills and concepts are broken down into bite-size chunks that are well organized and offer a comprehensive, cumulative approach to the topics. This makes it easy to pull up the application before practice to get a quick review of details without having to wade through hours of recorded video or all the YouTube tabs left open on my phone - it also saves me from carrying my DVD player around. While Stephan brings in world-class experts to teach each series (Fabio Gurgel to teach pressure passing, for example), one of my favorite things about the videos is that, after each lesson, Stephan asks all the questions that would occur to someone watching the videos and further breaks down the minutiae of each lesson. Overall, I would say that the attention to detail in the instructionals - along with the organization and accessibility provided by the application - has helped me diversify my skillset and become a more effective practitioner on the mats. 10/10: would recommend to anyone looking to polish their Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Stephan is an outstanding instructor. More intellectual than your average BJJ gorilla, but also doesn’t require a protractor and thesaurus like Danaher. Great blend of charisma, profound knowledge and an easy-to-digest teaching style. The app has a nice balance of free content and paid content—you sort of know when you’re to fork over a few bucks for a paid module, each of which as a ton of great stuff. Stephan also brings along some great guest instructors (I highly recommend his BJJ formula module with Rob Biernacki—I could (and probably will) chew on just that content for years). All of Stephan’s Grapplearts work is top notch, and an outstanding supplement to your regular training. Oss!
Stephan’s instructionals are both excellent in quality and clarity. In particular I recommend to all my fellow BJJ practitioner to buy the Rob Biernacki BJJ Formula. It will not only be informative in and of itself, but also it will level up your use of any other BJJ instructionals, you’ll get more out of free YouTube instructions and out of all your other purchased BJJ sources.
I have been following Stephens work for at least 5 years now and he has assembled some of the hands down best BJJ instructors from North America and Brazil to teach on his app all excellent content and excellent customer service !!!
Stephan’s instructions are always very clear and easy to understand. The production quality is excellent and the app is well designed. Stephan is a talented instructor who knows BJJ and knows how to explain it and demonstrate it. I have no affiliation with him. I just really appreciate the quality of the content he puts out online.
I have used Gracie university, this App, and many other apps on the App Store. There is no doubt that this is the absolute best! The customer service is amazing! The instructors are wonderful. The content is frankly, overwhelming. If you don’t know anything about BJJ, I would highly recommend going step by step through Gracie University or study under a good instructor. Stephan’s roadmap of BJJ (free) is also essential reading. However, if you are further in your BJJ journey, there is absolutely no better resource than this! Thanks Stephan for all you do for the community!
Please make a free module where there is a couple submissions, sweeps, guard passes and other things.
As a BJJ rookie, this app is pure gold! Everything is broken down and made easy to understand. I went all in and got everything so I have ready access to any of the concepts as I progress at my school. Not gonna lie. I did take a couple of random sneak peeks at more advanced modules. Such awesome content! I can’t wait to get proficient in everything presented (and it IS very extensive)! As the younger folks say these days, this app is 🔥🔥! Also, shout out to great customer support for swiftly addressing a minor concern.
Stephen Kesting and his circle of instructors consistently produce superb instructionals. Great detail, down to earth tone, easy to navigate app format, and top notch customer service. Over the years I’ve learned so many great details from Stephen, Brendan Mullins, Emily Kwok, Ritchie Yip, Rob Biernacki, etc that have helped me progress, and there’s tons more content to study and incorporate. I just downloaded the modern leglock app and am looking forward to taking on what appears to be a PhD course in lower limb applied physics. Thanks for all the great stuff and please keep it up!
