  • Parents should parent; not ask!

    Parents should parent; not ask!

    In today’s society, many children have been given the role of decision making on big decisions that will impact them and their future.From what they eat, to what they do, there are many things today that parent’s have lost disciplining too, and it can have a negative long term effect in the long run for their children. It all stems from the common mistake of asking your child what they want, rather you enforcing what is best. For example; is your child a picky eater?A child becomes a picky eater because either the parent failed to introduce/enforce certain types of foods early on or because it was easier to feed them what they thought they’d like, or what was easy to ....

  • Returning back to BJJ during the pandemic

    Returning back to your BJJ training during the pandemic We all ask ourselves the same question: “When is it safe to come back”? Returning back to your BJJ training can be just as scary as returning to train after an injury has healed; you will always initially have some level of fear and caution, but once you return slowly, the fear begins to dissipate and the confidence to resume training returns. All students who return to train have signed a new special waiver which audits the individual to ensure the person has no symptoms; has not traveled outside the U.S. or within the U.S. without quarantining, and other important prerequisites needed to return. The academy has ....

  • The real anti-bully

    The real anti-bully

    In a time where tablets and devices are king for our new generation, it is critical to note its impact along with the lack of self esteem that many children have today. Self esteem is rooted from not only self-respect, but also having confidence in one own’s abilities, talents and self worth. There is wave of social media outbursts and posts on anti-bullying; but we are focusing so much on the consequence, and not on the cause. Many parents decide to enroll their children in martial arts as a remedy to combat bullying, but the truth is that martial arts training for children should be a preventative measure and activity to help build their self esteem and self respect. Today, many ....

  • The importance of "mat time" in your BJJ progression

    The importance of "mat time" in your BJJ progression

    Time on your belt is not as important as time on the mat. Many students’ eyes shine with the hopes of moving up on their jiu-jitsu ladder, whether it be earning a world title; a gold medal at a local tournament; excelling in their positions; earning their next stripe; or making that jump into their next belt. There is nothing more gratifying than being rewarded for your hard efforts. Earning your next belt is its own glory, and a very important milestone in your BJJ journey. For adults, there are only 4 belts before you receive the honor of being presented your black belt. It takes a very special type of person to continue and push through all the way. It is important to ....
