You Mean It's OK to Turtle After All?
BJJ Survey Results (Part 3)

BJJ Survey Results (Part 2)

As many of you likely know by now, I recently ran an online survey for BJJ practitioners (see here). I already reported all of the demographic findings (see here) except for the nationality of participants. Because nationality was one of several open answer questions in the survey, all 500+ responses need to be coded by hand. Needless to say, this is a very time consuming and monotonous task. Plus, participants didn't make it easy to count by confusing nationality with race, ethnicity, or heritage. So, I am not going to publish the raw data for now (although, as I have already mentioned, all data will be made publicly available soon). Instead, I thought I would just publish a list of the countries which are represented in the data set. The countries are listed below the fold!

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Brazil
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina 
  • Canada
  • China
  • Colombia
  • Croatia
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Great Britain
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Iceland
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Ireland
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Jamaica
  • Malta
  • Mexico
  • Malaysia 
  • Macedonia
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Nicuragua 
  • Norway
  • Pakistan
  • Phillipines
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Russia
  • Scottland
  • Serbia
  • Singapore
  • South Africa
  • South Korea
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Uruguay
  • United States
  • Vietnam

So, with 46 countries represented in all, the survey reached people around the world. And while most of the participants were unsurprisingly from the United States, a number of countries had a good showing--e.g., Australia, Canada, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Norway, Philippines, and Portugal, to name a few in the double digits. As I noted in another post, there were surprisingly few Brazilians who took the survey (15) and even fewer Japanese (zero!). But all told, people from around the world took the time to complete the study. So, thanks again to everyone near and far who helped! That said, I am presently working on the next post about the survey--which will present some of the results from the second BJJ-specific part of the study. So, stay tuned!
