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!

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.
See you on the mats!

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.

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.

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!!

TRAINING INTENSITY:
Keep this phrase in mind when training live: “Go as hard as your partner can go, not as hard as you can go”. Our academy has many students from all walks of life and age groups, all with different goals, body types, and training schedules. Keep in mind there is a major difference in perspective between a professional martial artist (be it MMA or BJJ competitor) and a recreational martial artist or someone simply looking to have fun and get in shape while learning self defense. Whatever your goal, every student’s perspective and training should be viewed equally. After all, only a small percentage of students actually compete or fight in MMA events.

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”

-Confucius

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
FIRST TIME COMPETING:
First let me say that competing is neither encouraged or discouraged at the Academy. In short, the reason that we take this stance on competition, is because everyone is on their own Jiu-Jitsu journey and that means different things to different people. Competition is a great tool to test yourself at a higher level. Remember in our last segment, we touched upon how the intensity when you begin to roll live can escalate. During competitions , intensity is higher yet. For some people this is not needed, as they have other goals for their martial arts journey.
If you do decide to compete (and this is a very small percentage of BJJ practitioners), you have to train consistently!!!  If things come up that prevent you from that, train as much as you can, but postpone competition until a time, when you’re able to devote adequate preparation. When competing, remember that there are many factors that can affect the result (technique, endurance, adrenaline, and competition experience). Even if you’re technically better, and your opponent is more experienced at competing, that may sway the result (mental state, strategy, knowledge/ ability to compete regarding the rules and so on…). From things as obvious as how long and how often you trained in comparison to your opponent/opponents, to perhaps just having an off day or you were sick/injured. Please remember that competition is NOT the be all end all of your BJJ life, it is merely a tool for some practitioners to use to further their development in the art. As Master Renzo Gracie says “You either Win or Learn”

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
HOW TO INCREASE CARDIO FOR ROLLING:
When it comes to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the answer is as simple as keep training!
Other aspects like running, swimming, etc. are great assets to build cardio, but nothing compares to the actual action of rolling. You’ll not only improve your cardio, but your timing and overall game!
When rolling, try to match your partner’s training intensity and be aware of the moments when you rest and try to push through in a smart manner. You want to be conscious to have purpose behind your movements. Also be aware of your technique, breathing pattern and try to control it as you push yourself.
Be sure to stay hydrated, ALWAYS drink lots of water!
Especially in the warm weather!!!

 

See you on the Mats!

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
How Can I Be Faster?
Speed is an illusion. Some people can run faster than others, but when it comes to techniques speed is not the determining factor in catching someone. The most important thing is fully  understanding every detail of the techniques being used. The more you  understand the details the more you’ll start to develop the feeling and the timing of the technique.
At first, majority of your training partners will escape and maybe even reverse you, but this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t work. You actually are getting better at it with every try. You are feeling different responses to your technique as well as different ways to set it up. In remembering all of these responses over time you will know the many different ways people will react to the technique you are looking to catch them with before you even apply it! This is what puts you a few steps ahead and allows you to time the reaction of your training partners to use their response to catch them in said technique.
So it’s not a matter of being faster. It’s actually a better understanding of what you’re aiming to use and the timing of when and how to use it. Details are the most important part of any technique and as your progress on your journey, the Fundamentals Class will turn from learning brand new techniques to learning the details of the techniques that have gotten you to where you are now!
See you on the mats!
