BJJ

Don’t be overwhelmed. Beginner classes everywhere go through the same sequence. Here's what to expect.
In BJJ, a competitor does not need to be as strong as possible. A competitor needs to be strong for his or her body weight.
Every second of every day has been occupied by something I had to do for school or the gym this week, but I'm ready to take on the challenges.
After winning gold last weekend, I’m feeling pretty confident as I get ready to head out to Masters Worlds this week.

As a smaller person, one of your biggest strengths is your speed and ability to exploit the holes in the game of your opponent.
My BJJ training schedule has undergone some changes and I am already beginning to reap the benefits.
Getting better at BJJ comes down to one thing - being able to train consistently for a long period of time. But this doesn't mean training TOO much.
I competed in the IBJJF No-Gi Pan Am tournament on Saturday, and I ended up falling short. But I still learned from it.
