Before & After BJJ :
 
We all know that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective forms of self defense, but there are also many other benefits that come with this great art. One such benefit is weight loss, which is an amazing byproduct of consistent training. Below are some of the many students who have experienced this benefit while training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!

New Year Resolution Pt 2, Staying the course:
It’s great to make a New Year’s Resolution but when February rolls around the hard work begins. We must now work on ways to help keep yourselves on the right track. As we said before in Pt 1 of our New Year’s Resolution article, we often fail because of lack of persistence and follow through. We have to stay focused and remember to keep making small, incremental goals. This way we can mentally reward ourselves for each success (however minute it may seem) on our journey to accomplish our main goal.
Embracing new friendships can be a great way to stay consistent and motivated during your BJJ journey. Some of the greatest bonds of friendship have been made on the jiu-jitsu mats. By surrounding yourself with like-minded, goal oriented people, you will greatly increase your chances of reaching your objectives !
See you on the mats!

“Quality is not an act, its a habit.”

-Aristotle

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
“Starting the New Year Right”
Every year people make  New Year’s resolutions, but many fail because of lack of follow up, lack of persistence or unrealistic goals. “Rome was not Built in a day.” It is much better to make smaller, short term goals that are achievable, than going to the extreme. Small, incremental successes will eventually help you achieve big long term goals.
A great way to do this for your BJJ training is to pick two to three  classes a week, that you can regularly attend, and can make into a weekly routine. Repetition breeds habit, habit equals persistence, and persistence is the key to success!
Once you have accomplished a consistent training regimen, you can begin to expand your class schedule to incorporate more days. Also try to build good habits outside of the academy. Things like getting to bed early and eating healthy are ways to help you be more prepared for your training. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is first and foremost a Martial Art, but it can also be used as a vehicle for self improvement in every day life.
See you on the mats!

“What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.”

-Ralph Martson

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
“I Forgot Everything.”
“I forgot everything that I have been drilling”, is a very common term that I hear my students say after their first time rolling (BJJ Sparring). I’ve literally heard this hundreds of times over the years, but worry not. YOU’RE NOT ALONE! Everyone at some point in their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey was brand new to sparring and had to work through what you’re now feeling.
First, remember before when you were only drilling, your partner was offering very little resistance to your technique. Now you’re attempting to apply these techniques to a partner who is defending against your sweeps and submissions. This fact alone will make your techniques much more difficult to apply. Also, if the student you are rolling with is more experienced then you, they are likely to have an understanding of the techniques you’re trying to implement and are able to react or counter more efficiently. Don’t forget to factor in the added stress of trying to utilize bjj under duress. Stress is very powerful, it will make you fatigue much faster then normal and forget things that you previously thought you knew. Just try and relax, Rome was not built in a day and you’re already a winner for being on that mats trying your best. Over time, you will begin to get more comfortable with rolling and the techniques you have been drilling will begin to happen live on the mats. It may take some longer then others, but this is what makes BJJ such an amazing art. It is a never ending game of SELF improvement.
See you on the mats!

ROLLING WITH THE FOX
Tips on how to get and remain consistent.
We frequently remind students that the best way to improve in training is CONSISTENCY. One of the simplest ways to sustain consistency is to train regularly in the same classes/times weekly.  After a few weeks this will create a routine, making it far more likely to get into the rhythm of a consistent training regimen. If you have an opportunity for additional training, absolutely do so, but make sure you still attend your regular classes, so you don’t deviate from your established routine.
Another important tip is to not take on too much too soon. Countless new students come into the academy and want to train all day, everyday, only to burn themselves out. Remember Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a marathon not a sprint. Consistent training over time is the key to progress and longevity, which can lead to your long term goal of becoming a Black Belt.
See you on the mats!

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!

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!

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!
