ROLLING WITH THE FOX
Remember to have fun:.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a marathon not a sprint. You must remember to enjoy yourself while training. If not, you may risk burning out. First, realize that every roll does NOT have to be so intense. You will find that by playing a little smoother and trying things you normally wouldn’t in a more intense roll, your game will expand quicker. Training will absolutely help reduce your stress levels but only if you allow it to. Yes, training should be serious and you want to do your best but know that it’s not about winning or losing. Training should be a way to test yourself and step out of your comfort zone but it should also be a fun, healthy activity. This way you will not burn out and can reach your ultimate goal of becoming the best that you can be.
See you on the mats!
Congratulations to Erin Blanchfield winning the first ever all female EBI event!

Gender Difference in Self-esteem within Jiu Jitsu participants by: Brendan Guarino
This research study is investigating how self-esteem a proponent of motivation plays a factor in jiu-jitsu as well the motivational factors and how they differ across gender.
