Claudia Gadelha was happy. Really happy. Yes, she defeated former world title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz in a little over three minutes in their June bout in Brazil, but it was more than that. In effect, that one win proved that all the changes she had made in her life since losing her rematch with strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk a little less than a year earlier were working. And if that doesn’t produce a smile, nothing will.“I am happier the way I see things now, the way that I live my life now,” she said. “I feel like I was a slave of the sport because ...

Kelly Slater is a record-holding 11 time World Surf League champion. He is both the youngest and oldest to ever hold the title. He is among the top legends of the sport. He likewise trains jiu jitsu, and here's what he has to say about the sport.

"If you have insecurities, they get worked out on the mat. I just think it's a humbling thing. People think of martial arts, they think that'll make you a badass and you'll kick somebody's butt, but to me it's the opposite. If it's treated right and taught correctly, it's the opposite -- it gives people confidence, and I think with that confidence comes less ego and more respect for other people."

Confident kids don't look for trouble. They have less ego and more respect for others. After a...

We're looking forward to starting our Beach BJJ after school program in September 2017. Wee will start small by serving only the local elementary schools. The program will include transportation from school to our facility. We'll pick them up from school, bring them beach BJJ, and then the fun begins. Classes will vary on a day to day basis, but include Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Striking, Wrestling, and Fitness classes all designed to teach your children self defense and healthy living skills. In addition, our instructors will engage the students with fun yet functional games to help teach valuable motor skills and hand eye coordination. We will utilize a "station" system, where kids will have an opportunity to rotate between a designated hom...

The following is excerpted from an excellent blog authored by Samuel Spiegelman. The topic: Why bring your kids to the gym, EVEN IF THEY NEVER TRAIN.

"Most parents turn to martial arts to teach their kids discipline. Discipline is only one of the positive aspects of martial arts. I would argue it is the least important of them all. BJJ attracts people of different ages, educational backgrounds, and professions. But despite the diversity, everyone is there for one reason - to get better at BJJ. In today’s society the workforce is more diverse than ever. It is important for kids to see people of different ages, races, and educational backgrounds working together. In every BJJ gym you will see students who are older receiving inst...

One of the better posts that we've read this year comes from JiuJitsuTimes.com. In this particular article, the author discusses five reasons (that ARE NOT self-defense) for women to train jiu jitsu.

1.It teaches you to love your body for what it can do rather than for what it looks like.

2. You don’t need to be big and strong to be good at it.

3. The sisterhood is like no other.

4. It smashes ideas about what a woman “should” or “shouldn’t” do.

5. It makes you a positive role model for younger girls.

Of course, improved physique and health, self-defense, and incredible confidence are also near the top of the list as benefits of training, but the author does a pretty nice job illustrating some of the...

This weekend, our school will promote 3 students to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt. Mike Camba, Michael Laviola and Daniel "Scientist" Wynn are as different as it gets on their spectrum of interests, body type, and family history. But they share a strength of character and conviction to better themselves and those around them. They are each also really proficient at jiu jitsu.

The brown belt is a senior rank and a brown belt should be a true representative of the academy and team. In our opinion, the way that someone conducts themselves off the mat is equally considered before promotion to brown belt. Once a student is promoted to brown belt, it is a relatively short jump to black belt. Usually only two or three years.

A brown belt ji...

By the time you complete your place as a purple belt, you will likely have finished laying the foundation of your entire jiu jitsu game. Your performance gains will be smaller and less obvious than they were at the white belt and blue belt stages. This can be frustrating. Many purple belts feel like they are not getting any better and that they are plateauing. The reality is that many of their improvements will come from subtle improvements found in achieving higher efficiency, greater fluidity and a stronger understanding of momentum and weight.

The BJJ purple belt also starts to make his or her own adjustments and applying more self-coaching because the knowledge base is much deeper and broader than at white and blue belt. The purpl...

So, what does it mean to be a blue belt? We agree with a concept that a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu really means that you are a serious student of the art. The blue belt student is someone who has put in a significant amount of time and effort towards improving their game. It doesn’t really say anything about their ability to fight, or how many moves they know. It simply means that they are a serious student. We think a good estimation is that 4 out of every 5 jiu jitsu students do not make it to blue belt.

It takes consistency to become a blue belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu. For the most part, the overwhelming majority of the students who quit use the following as their excuse: distance, money, family, work, or injury. O...

So, you've handled the hardest part. You've made the decision to train jiu jitsu. Choose your academy wisely. Educate yourself on the professor and the school. Take a trial class to see if you feel comfortable in the environment and with the staff and training partners it has to offer. Training must make you feel well, and the right atmosphere is crucial. Once you choose an academy, stick with it and trust your professor.

Now that you've enrolled, you'll start as a white belt.

The white belt is the first belt within Brazilian jiu-jitsu. The rank is held by any practitioner new to the art and has no prerequisite. Some instructors and other high-level practitioners think that a white belt's training should emphasize escapes and defensive p...

. . . answer: the average man does not get a black belt.

In all seriousness though, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Belt System is a far stricter than in most other martial arts. It can take upwards of 10 years to achieve the black belt. The practicioner will spend a long time at each belt level; and progress will not be linear. The BJJ student will spend weeks or months on plateaus before being rewarded with a jump in ability.

Over the next couple of days, we'll web log the different belt levels and what they mean to the student and their jiu jitsu.

From time to time, we get visitors at the school who end every sentence with "Oss." The use of “OSU!” or “OSS!” in Brazilian jiu-jitsu stems from traditional Japanese Okinawan karate. The term has several uses ranging from a greeting to answering a question and acknowledging an opponent’s skill among other things.

Many schools use "Oss" as a form of greeting. "Oss" is often used in place of “I understand”, “understood” or “yes”. At tournaments, “Oss!” is said while bowing before as well as after a fight. A fighter may use the term to acknowledge the skill an opponent shows during the execution of a technique.

It's commonly believed that the terms are a slang sh...
