BJJ

2014 has gotten off to a rocky start, but that's not going to stop me from competing in BJJ and Olympic weightlifting.
Let me share with you what I’ve learned both about how to style and how to care for your hair so it survives your BJJ training.
I’ve come to realize that there are many examples of how the unique ecosystem known as Brazilian jiu jitsu follows its own physical and natural laws.
My first tournament of the year didn't go quite as well as I had hoped. But I still enjoyed it and am happy that competition season is in full swing!
This was a week of ups and downs, but stepping back now, I realize the little negative things that happened were nothing in light of all the good things going on in my life.
When used properly, technology is a great addition to the BJJ learning process. When abused, it will lead to holes in your game that will show up down the road.
As tournament time approaches, I've been training hard and learning some freestyle judo tehcniques to prepare for the big day.
This week I trained at a different grappling school and got to work on tightening up some holes in my game.
What you believe and who you listen to will dictate your results in jiu jitsu and in life. I hope these words of champions will help you to push through tough times and fulfill your own dreams.
This was a crazy week, but a good one as far as training goes. I'm working on my lower body submissions to prepare for the upcoming tournament.
This was by far the best training week I’ve had this year, and it feels like my Brazilian jiu jitsu and weightlifting are coming together.
As a coach I've observed some common trends in my beginner students. Here are the five phases most new BJJ practitioners go through.
There are compelling arguments for BJJ practitioners to incorporate skills, concepts, and habits of mind that are traditionally associated with wrestling.
This week we received some updates about what will be allowed at the upcoming tournament. I'm also enjoying the strength and conditioning I've added to my training.
Now that competition season is in full swing, I've started to focus on tightening up my diet, strength and conditioning, bodyweight, and my overall BJJ game.
This week was packed full of fun BJJ stuff. I did a lot of coaching, learned several new techniques, and helped one of our teammates at a tournament.
