  • THE BJJ BROWN BELT: DEVELOPING A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING

    The last two blogs in this series (brown and black belt) aren’t going to focus as much on positions as much as they will focus on skills in BJJ as a whole and mindsets that you need to make it to the goal of a black belt (and even beyond that). Here are some of the things that you can practice for to make it to black: Shifting Your Game From Defense To Attack Mode-
    As a purple belt, you will start to make your positions (sweeps, takedowns, pressure of positions) better and better. As a brown belt, you should start to work on offense more than defense. Because your defense at this point should be solid and infused into your mind as muscle memory, the offense should be the thing you ....

  • THE BJJ PURPLE BELT: BECOMING A WELL ROUNDED FIGHTER

    Going into these next three blogs I am going to have to stop relying on my own experience and my own feelings and start giving other people’s thoughts and opinions on being a higher belt. Since I am inching closer and closer to purple belt I feel like I can relate a little to this blog and learn from what other purple belts have to say about their knowledge and experiences at the belt so far. Here are some of the responses I got from reading about and interviewing purple belts: 1.) Using Movement and Momentum-
    This is probably one of the biggest things that I see other purple belts get really good at. They use other people’s weight and pressure against them to advance their ....

  • THE BJJ BLUE BELT: FINDING YOUR OWN GAME

    A couple weeks ago I wrote a blog on why so many people quit BJJ at the blue belt level, today I will be talking about what things BJJ blue belts should be focusing on when it comes to training. Even though I am a high ranking blue belt I still need lots and lots of work on many of the things that I will be explaining in this blog before I reach purple belt level. This particular belt is where you will find yourself spending the most time. It is where you will want to quit, it is where you will face new physical and mental challenges, and it is also where you will learn how to develop your own personal game and what your strengths and weaknesses are. Here are some things that I have ....

  • THE BJJ WHITE BELT: “WHERE DO I START?”

    In my first and second blog (link at the bottom of the page) I explained the dos and don’ts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. If you are looking to get into BJJ and want a few tips on the etiquette and mindset that you should have when entering an academy, that is the blog that will help you the most. As for this blog, I will be focusing more on the techniques and skills that a white belt should acquire before he/ she gets their blue belt. While most blogs I have read tend to differ slightly from each other on what a white belt should and shouldn’t learn, they all explain that the best thing that you could do for your BJJ when you first start is to get really good at the basics. Because ....

  • WHY WOMEN SHOULD TRAIN BRAZILIAN JIU- JITSU

    If you walk into any Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu school right now and see how many women there are, you could most likely count them on one or two hands. Why is that? BJJ is (for the most part) a very male dominated sport, it’s a close contact wrestling type martial art that involves choking your opponent or manipulating their joints. It sounds very intimidating at first but there is so much that BJJ can do for women besides learning self defense! You Don’t Have to be Big or Strong to be Good
    BJJ was made with the idea that a smaller, weaker person could outsmart and use technique against their opponent/ attacker using simple defense and escape techniques. I have seen people at ....

  • LOSING IN BJJ: DEALING WITH DEFEAT

    There’s a famous saying in the BJJ community: There is no losing, you either win or you learn. This quote could not be more true for people who practice BJJ. Everyone hates losing, they hate the feeling of defeat. It sucks. But what makes a person a true fighter with a warrior spirit is if they accept that loss with humbleness , learn from their mistakes, and come back better than before. Here are some things that can help you deal with your losses and give you the warrior mentality that you need for BJJ! 1.) Losing should be a humbling experience that teaches you humility, and also gives you motivation to do better that you thought you could never have. When I first started BJJ, ....

  • 7 REASONS WHY BJJ IS THE BEST MARTIAL ART FOR YOUR KIDS

    Having your child start sports at a young age is always a great idea. They learn so many positive life lessons and gain friends, but if you’re looking for the absolute BEST sport/ martial art to enroll your kids in, Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu is hands down at the top of the list. There are so many benefits of this martial art that are great for both kids and adults: 1.) Self- Confidence-
    BJJ gives kids the confidence they need to not only face bullies, but to grow into strong leaders who aren’t afraid or intimidated by new challenges. 2.) Discipline and Respect-
    Any child who takes martial arts can learn discipline and respect, but BJJ can teach them discipline of the mind and ....

  • THE BJJ BLUE BELT: WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE QUIT?

    I’m writing about this topic today because recently we just had four people promoted to purple belt, and also because the other day I was talking to one of my teammates about the number of people that have started and quit since I’ve been at Supremacy (there has been a lot) and it got me thinking: why do most people quit at or before the blue belt level? So many people come into the gym, do an AMAZING job and are very talented, and quit once they hit blue belt or gradually lose the interest/ drive that they once had when they started. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve felt like crap during training, I’ve wanted to quit, I’ve cried so many times because I thought ....

  • DEPRESSION AND JIU- JITSU

    About 6.7 Percent of all adults in America suffer from depression. Symptoms of depression can include: anxiety, general discontent, guilt, hopelessness, loss of intrest/ pleasure in activities, mood swings, sadness, excessive sleepiness, insomnia, excessive hunger, loss of appetite, irritability, social isolation, weight gain, or weight loss. These symptoms if left untreated can lead to suicide or thoughts of suicide. We’ve all seen the memes on Facebook (if you follow any BJJ pages) saying that Jiu- jitsu is the magical cure for everything, but the reality is that it isn’t the only factor to healing your depression, and just training alone may not be the only thing that will ....

  • STRETCHING AND YOGA FOR BJJ (PART 2: YOGA)

    In the last blog post, we talked about why stretching before and after class can benefit your game. Now it’s time to talk about Yoga for BJJ! Yoga is becoming more and more used in the BJJ community and is being recognized as a practice that helps you greatly on and off of the mats. I have had so many people at Supremacy (students, parents, friends, or family) come up to me and ask when we are going to implement a Yoga class into our curriculum because they have heard about the benefits it has on your bjj game and health in general and want to try it out. Some of the benefits of Yoga include:
    Increased flexibility.
    Increased muscle strength and tone.
    Improved respiration, energy ....

  • STRETCHING AND YOGA FOR BJJ (PART 1: STRETCHING)

    I’ve had many people over the years tell me how important stretching is, especially when you are training BJJ or any other sport/ exercise that is hard on the body. This is something that I personally have a hard time with because I would never like to take the extra time out of my day to stretch, but it is something that is so important for your body if you want to train hard and increase your flexibility and mobility on and off of the mats. Stretching has so many health benefits and keeps you feeling good whether you’re training hard or not training at all. Stretching before and after your training can:
    Minimize risks of personal injury
    Helps with relieving soreness the day ....

  • JIU- JITSU DOS AND DON’TS (PART 2: WHAT YOU SHOULDN’T DO)

    Last week I wrote about the things that you SHOULD be doing during BJJ class. Whether it is your first class and you want to know what to expect or how to act, or if you’re newer in class and you want to find out how to blend in more and have a better time during class. This week I will be going over the other half of BJJ dos and don’ts: What you SHOULDN’T do. These will always apply to everyone, no matter what belt color you are or where you train. BJJ DON’TS:
    Don’t come into your gym with an ego- No one will be impressed by it, and you will more than likely make a few enemies this way who will try to tap the ego out of you which in turn will make you upset ....

  • JIU- JITSU DOS AND DON’TS (PART 1: WHAT YOU SHOULD DO)

    When I walked into Supremacy BJJ four years ago, I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t know any gym etiquette, I didn’t know how to bow in and out of class, I didn’t even know how to tie my own belt. I had to learn it all on my own, and I’m still learning piece by piece as I go along. I wish back then that I had read just a little about what I should expect and how I should conduct myself, because it’s awkward being the new kid in class trying to keep up with everybody who already knows what they’re doing. That’s why I am writing this blog today, so that hopefully new students (or students that just started training) will read this and understand ....
