BJJ

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.
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.
There are compelling arguments for BJJ practitioners to incorporate skills, concepts, and habits of mind that are traditionally associated with wrestling.
Our Brazilian jiu jitsu team is knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate about their sport. Meet our BJJ staff and read their articles, athlete journals, and workouts.
After every tournament, I always evaluate my performance with my coaches. This week I analyzed what happened on the mat during the match that prevented me from executing my game plan at my last match.
I tell everyone the best way to get better at BJJ is to actually do BJJ. The best way to keep doing Brazilian jiu jitsu is to make sure you have a good strength and conditioning program.
School is back in session starting this week, and it's going to be a challenge trying to balance classes, training, and coaching. I'm trying to stay positive while I figure out how to manage it all!
My first competition of 2014 didn't go as well as I had hoped, but I gave it my best. I also got a sponsorship this week, which was great news!
How are you supposed to know what kind of gi to get? What about tying the belt? And where do you buy those awesome Meerkatsu rash guards? Don’t worry boys and girls. I have the answers.
The purpose of sparring is to make both you and your partner better. But more often than not, I see egos get in the way of getting something out of the session.
Despite my injured knee, I slowly eased back into training this week, and am looking forward to competing in a tournament on February 8th.
