ROLLING WITH THE FOX
Bullying!
In honor of October being recognized as anti-bullying month, we would like to take a moment to focus on the benefits of training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In both adults and children, training martial arts will most certainly develop the following attributes:
confidence  
– problem solving
– discipline
– awareness 
– ability to defend self and others
just to name a few.
This is extremely important because the impact from being bullied as a child or even demoralized as an adult, can lead to a litany of anxiety related problems or social disorders.
Training martial arts and getting involved in other healthy outlets will absolutely help alleviate stress and could even help get people off of medications that may be toxic or carry negative side effects.
So remember, train regularly and live an active – healthy life style.
A Jiu-Jitsu class a day,  will keep bullies away and stress at bay !!!
See you on the mats!
Up Coming Events!
Our FREE Anti Bullying Workshop is back, Tell a Friend!! All are welcomed to this event!

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
New Students training with advanced students:.
 
Most times you will find that, as a newer student in the class, you may be paired up with a more experienced partner. We do this so that the more experienced practitioner will help guide your progress. DO NOT FEEL LIKE YOU ARE HOLDING THEM BACK. This is not only good for the newer student but also for the advanced one! Training with someone a bit less experienced helps advanced students hone their technique. To efficiently help a newer student develop proper technique, advanced students have to focus on the minute details. Details that you may have been previously over looking because of their familiarity with the move. In addition, Jiu- Jitsu enriches people’s lives. We call this “Paying it forward”. When advanced students were new, someone guided them and now they are returning the favor. So not only does the advanced student get better but so does the new student and this continues to perpetuate the mentality of Paying to forward to our fellow team mates!
See you on the mats!

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!

-Og Mandino

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
Allowing your technique to develop:
 
You may hear an instructor or senior student tell you to take it a little bit easier while rolling, and there is a very good reason for that. When you begin your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey, it is common that you compensate for lack of technique with force. It is better to move at a pace that will allow you to correct your movements rather then trying to compensate for your technical deficiencies with your physical attributes i.e strength, speed, flexibility ect. Yes, sometimes you need to push yourself and test the techniques you have been working hard to develop. However keep in mind that needs to be done with the appropriate partner, who is aware that you are trying to work at a higher pace and push yourself. Powering through a failed technique is not helping you correct the technique, but rather gives you a false sense of security. Yes, strength is important in ultimately prevailing in a BJJ match (all other things being equal), but the most important aspect of practice is to improve our technique!
See you on the mats!

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

-Nelson Mandela

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
What does it mean to be a good training partner?: 
 
Having a good training partner is key to your development in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Solo drilling can help develop some techniques, however nothing can replace a live person to work with.
These are some things to be mindful of while training:
ALWAYS BE CONSCIOUS OF YOUR SAFETY, AS WELL AS YOUR TRAINING PARTNER’S.
Focus on the technique being taught by the instructor. Even high level BJJ practitioners can continue honing their craft while drilling techniques that they already have “learned”.
Don’t be too resistant or too compliant. The term that we use is, “Give your partner a Good Look”; meaning let them drill the move without resistance, but don’t just flop on your back. It is also key to quietly communicate to one another that the technique is being executed properly.
If you are advanced and helping a new student, try not to over-correct your partner. Think back to when you first began your jiu-jitsu journey. None of us started out as black belts. The quote, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, is quite fitting in our martial art.
These are just a few things to keep in mind when training in class. Having a great training partners will increase your development as well as the overall level of the academy. I, nor any other black belt, could have made it to this level alone. Our training partners should be held in the highest of respect because they help us improve daily.
See you on the mats!

“Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.”

-Carol Burnett

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
Taking that first class is the biggest step: 
I often hear people say that I wish I started training sooner. Time training, “mat time”, may be important, however the day you start your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Journey, is the best time to start for you personally! You are already ahead of all the people who are still planning on trying “tomorrow”.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will help you grow in all aspects of your life. One of the key reasons, is by taking you out of your comfort zone. True accomplishment comes from overcoming obstacles, not just in training, but in life. Problem solving is probably one of the most underrated skills that BJJ helps develop. What will you do when life throws you a curve ball? I know what a martial artist will do, dig deep and fight through whatever peril they face. Nothing great ever comes easy, but things earned through hard work are truly cherished.
See you on the mats!

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
What is Required to Compete for the Academy: 
 
First let me start by stating, that only around 10% of BJJ practitioners will ever compete, let alone be a full time competitor. Deciding whether or not to compete is each student’s own personal choice. However, we are here to help guide our students in all of their endeavors, but understand that there are higher standards that must be upheld while representing the academy in competition. It is always a good idea to speak to an instructor when you begin to consider competing. They can give you an idea of what is expected of you, and most importantly what you can expect from competing. That being said, the most important factor regarding competition, is consistent training. This can vary slightly depending on the student and their obligations outside of the academy, but consistent training is absolutely essential.

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
Understanding your progress: 
 
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a journey and most often it can be a unique experience. The first thing to remember is not to compare yourself with anyone else. You are only in a competition with yourself. Try to focus on making daily progress, the rest will take care of it’s self. Another very common issue that I hear of, is the proverbial “slump”. This is completely normal and everyone goes through it at some point in their progression. There are several elements that go into being in a slump but the most important thing to remember is that any day on the mat is a good day. Try not to focus too much on winning or losing during training. Just focus on learning and improving. You will find that your “slumps” will pass quickly.
See you on the mats!

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
The Importance of Combining Techniques: 
 
Combining techniques is critical to implement your game on a skilled and resisting opponent. Take a boxer for example; they would never just throw one punch at a time. That would be a recipe for disaster. They would try to string their punches together into combinations. This will increase their chances of successfully landing a fight finishing blow. The same concept applies in BJJ. If we only try one thing at a time, with out planning follow up techniques, it will be very easy for our opponent to counter your move. By using combinations you will see that it becomes a lot easier to keep your partner off balance thus making it more likely for you to have success with your desired technique. In the beginning of your BJJ journey this may seem like an overwhelming task. But as you improve in skill, you will see how this concept of combining techniques will increase your rate of success dramatically.
See you on the mats!

Goals:
Everyone has aspirations and goals that they want to accomplish in life, whether they are on or off the mat. When we consciously dedicate ourselves to these endeavors, we are more than capable of accomplishing anything. What has helped me with my journey, is making incremental short-termed goals, so that you can see progress along the way. The road to your final goal may be long and hard but by making smaller more easily obtainable goals you can keep yourself on track and motivated!!
