    Top Reasons why every Law Enforcement Officer should train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

    Top Reasons why every Law Enforcement Officer should train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu RMBJJ is a proud supporter of our local law enforcement. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has not only tactical and physical benefits, but mental and emotional ones as well for all officers. Tactically , BJJ is the perfect art for a police officer. It teaches you how to take down and control a person while giving you options to escalate or deescalate force as needed. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that fundamentally allows both the Officer and subject, if a struggle were to ensue, to come out of the situation with the least amount of physical harm to all involved. Physically , it is some ....

  • Choosing A BJJ School

    The first, and probably most important step when beginning your BJJ journey, is finding the right school. There are alot of factors that go into this decision, none of which should be passed over. Any reputable school should offer some sort of free trial class, or at bare minimum, allow you to observe a class. Knowing how the class is taught, how the students are treated and how students interact with each other and the professors are very important. Looking at the class schedule is also a factor potential students need to take into account. It doesnt matter how good the school is if you cant make it to any of the classes. Of course location, travel distance and tuition cost ....

  • The Importance Of A Balanced Life

    One of the most difficult and confounding things to achieve in life is a balance. Too often we unbalance ourselves, with the best intentions of balancing things later. We bury ourselves in work, chasing success and money in hopes that when we have gotten “enough” we can change the Dynamics of our lives to focus on family, friends and enjoying the “fruits of your labor”. Often enough we find that the parts of life we needed to enjoy the most passed by whilst we chased the means to live it. On the other side of the coin, sometimes we focus so much on the things in life that make it “enjoyable” we shirk the responsibilities we are laden with, ....

  • Insights From My Vegas World Masters

    Competition in Jiu jitsu is a strange thing. We test ourselves on the mats daily, trying to push our skills and abilities beyond where it was yesterday. Being a practitioner and a professor I try to push myself and my students as far as they can… And then make them reach further. I have not competed in almost 7 years, since I was a purple belt. Back then I was very unsure of my skills and was afraid to embarrass myself or my professor and school. But I decided this year that I would push myself to compete again. So here I am, having competed twice within a week. First in a state championship and then to the biggest stage possible, the IBJJF worlds masters, all the way on the ....

  • Jiu Jitsu And Mental Health

    Over the past few years there has been an increasing trend in high profile suicides, most recently celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. The announcement of his death rocked the world, but it also shook the Jiu Jitsu community. Anthony Bourdain was an accomplished blue belt and was outspoken in his love for the gentle art. His sudden death from suicide put a spot light on an issue that hits close to home with many BJJ students and teachers, mental health. I have touched on the subject previously, noting that BJJ has helped many practitioners deal with a wide array of issues from anxiety to depression and to PTSD by allowing the person to face these issues on a tangible level. But just like ....

  • Loyalty in Jiu Jitsu

    Loyalty, a word that gets thrown around a lot when it comes to martial arts. Before the modern era, a student would spend a lifetime studying under one master, blindly following with no question. Loyalties were tied to one teacher, one school, and to break from that school was a mortal sin. In today’s world, moving between schools and instructors is fairly common place. We move, we change plans, we look at our instructors differently over time and we question the art we study. Does this mean that there is no loyalty? Or has the definition changed? Jiu Jitsu is a strange beast when it comes to loyalty. There are students that spend their entire BJJ career under one ....

  • Should I Compete In Jiu Jitsu?

    Some of the most frequently asked questions among new BJJ practitioners is “should I compete?” Or “do I have to compete?” The answers to these frequently confounds and causes dissension in the BJJ universe. Competing is one of the founding pillars of Jiu Jitsu, tracing its roots back to the very beginning of what is modern-day BJJ. If it wasn’t for competition, Jiu Jitsu may have never made it out of Brazil. If the founding fathers of Jiu Jitsu had not gone beyond the measure of good reason to challenge other martial art disciplines to prove the effectiveness of the gentle art, we would not have modern-day MMA. Competition in BJJ has promoted the ....

  • BJJ Life And Real Life

    Something that frequently comes up when new potential students talk with us is how can BJJ help me in real life? This is an interesting question that begs the counter thought of what do you want to change about your life? It sounds ego driven and slightly condescending but it is valid. When you come to one of our schools you are already taking the initiative to make a change in your life. Whether it is to improve your health, deal with stress or just try something new, you are trying to make changes. So how does BJJ help in the everyday? It’s not a short answer in the least, but to put it into a nice box, you are not just learning a new martial art or skill, You are ....

  • Don't Let Your Age Prevent You From Training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

    Many people I meet tell me, “I’m too old to start BJJ”, and even some of my own students have told me, “I’m too old to keep doing this!” I want to tell you that everyone’s BJJ journey is different, so don’t let something like age hold you back! There are many different types of jiu jitsu practitioners, and not everyone fits into one category only. Two main types of “jiujiteiros” can be described as: The Athlete. This person is probably in their late teens or early 20s. They are full of stamina and youthful energy and train 4+ times per week, 2 times a day sometimes. They are in prime physical shape and competition is ....
