White Belt Jiu Jitsu – When Should I Start Competing?

We all start Jiu-Jitsu for different reasons; some start to get fit, some start to lose weight, some start to learn self defence, some start to meet new people, the list goes on-and-on.  And regardless of why you initially start, there is likely going to be some point along your…


They Say Jiu Jitsu Changes Lives….

The say Jiu-Jitsu changes lives.  If you're in the Jiu-Jitsu community or around the martial arts community, you've likely heard this being thrown around.  Heck, we even have it here on our website front page.  Of recent I have heard Marcelo Garcia, of whom some consider to be the greatest…

10 Struggles Of The New Jiu Jitsu White Belt

Starting anything new can be daunting at first, and this is even more pronounced when that something is a fight sport like Jiu-Jitsu.  Just walking through the door can be a struggle in itself.  It's a new environment, an environment really like no other.  Everyone is wearing these strange uniforms,…


‘I’m Not Improving In My Jiu Jitsu.’ The Importance Of Both Winning And Losing.

When you have been around Jiu Jitsu Academies for sometime, you will definitely hear this statement A LOT, 'I'm not improving in my Jiu Jitsu'.  And for me this statement is ridiculous!  Providing that one is at least training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu semi-regularly, is listening in class, and is going through the…


How To Stay Consistent With Your Jiu-Jitsu Goals In 2015

As we start a new year many of us set new goals, new directions, and sometimes a promise of consistency to old goals and directions, but as many of us a well aware it is often all too easy to let these goals and directions slip.  This is especially true…
