  • Jiu Jitsu - The Great Equalizer

    I have this saying: BJJ won't help you be the athletic kid with all the muscles, it'll help you beat the athletic kid with all the muscles. I grew up playing sports. Baseball, football, basketball, even wrestling (but only for a season). But as a kid with no natural athleticism, no speed, little strength, slow reflexes, and poor body mechanics; sports weren't much fun. There was always someone bigger, faster, stronger, better. And for someone like me, it was everyone. But I was competitive at heart, and as a young intellectual, I always thought that there had to be some kind of way to level the playing field. I spent the majority of my childhood trying to make up for my athletic ....

  • Why BJJ?

    We're at a point in time where the booming popularity of martial arts has given rise to martial arts schools on nearly every corner. I remember as a kid, you might see one or two dojos in your whole city, but these days things are different, and we've come a long way. The UFC's meteoric rise to popularity changed the way we look at martial arts, and even changed the martial arts that many of us practice. We used to see traditional arts like Karate and Tae Kwon Do at the forefront. But here in 2018, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu schools are sweeping the nation. Many martial artists are well versed in the striking arts, but the burning question on everybody's mind is: "CAN YOU DEFEND YOURSELF ON ....

  • Is Jiu Jitsu All About The Tapout?

    There's a common belief about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. A belief that I'd like to label as a misconception. In my 11 years in the martial art, I've consistently heard that "the purpose of jiu jitsu is to submit your opponent." Sure, the quickest and most effective way to win a jiu jitsu match is to make your opponent tap out, but life isn't a jiu jitsu match. And jiu jitsu extends well outside the scope of tournament matches. Jiu Jitsu can be used in an MMA fight, a real life self defense scenario, and applied to many different facets of your life. Jiu Jitsu has a far greater purpose than just winning NAGA tournaments, and focusing on only the tap out can be a very limiting mindset. Even in a ....

  • Choosing a BJJ School - For Competitors

    As a follow up to my piece "Choosing a BJJ School", I'd like to go a little more in depth. Specifically, into the depths of finding a Jiu Jitsu academy for those looking to compete. Whether an established competitor, or a beginner whose ultimate goal is to get out there and compete; there might be some additional concerns to look out for that I hadn't touched upon in my previous article. Whether just starting out, moving, or just looking to broaden your horizons, there are a few extra things you might want to think about. My previous article mentions location, schedule, technique, attitude, and variety. All of these attributes are imperative to a good school, but as a competitor we both ....

  • Choosing a BJJ School

    Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA schools are everywhere nowadays. We've come a long way from the days where there might only be one or two schools in your whole state, and even fewer black belts. Times have certainly changed for the better, and with the rapid evolution of our sport, schools are sprouting up everywhere. So how do you choose the one that's right for you? In my years of studying martial arts, I've been fortunate enough to travel all throughout the United States, visit many of the top schools, and train with countless world champions . In my 11 years of Jiu Jitsu I have visited over 50 of the best schools in the US, more than most practitioners will visit in a lifetime; and I ....

  • You Miss Every Shot You Don't Take

    As you may have guessed, my inaugural blog entry is about taking chances. A wise man once said (or maybe many wise men have said this); "you miss every shot you don't take." This quote can apply to so many things on a universal level. Whether we're discussing sports, business, chasing a dream, or asking someone on a date; life is all about taking a shot. At the end of the day, there will always be things we will look back on and regret. I've heard it said that the worst regret we can have when we look back on the past is a "what if?" It seems easy to reason why this may be. Sometimes in life we try something and fail, but out of that failure comes growth. Its plain to see why ....
