BJJ NEAR ME - CONSIDERATIONS WHEN CHOOSING A BJJ GYM

bjj jiu jitsu self defense Dec 11, 2020

JIU JITSU NEAR ME

 

When searching for a Jiu Jitsu school or BJJ gym near you consider the following. 

1.    Are the instructors friendly and welcoming? Do the students welcome you into their group? Some schools can be a breeding ground for guys with a chip on their shoulder that want to only dominate and never want to look bad. This can be a recipe for disaster and injury.  Ideally, you want an environment that you can make mistakes and your teammates will help you learn from them.  Take a look around and see if people are smiling and having fun training. Do they look like they are standoffish and there only for themselves? Is the general vibe of the room about ego and dominating or is it about helping each other get better and improve themselves? Is the vibe about proving or improving?

2.      What is the technical level of the students and instructor? Can the instructor break techniques down in a simple way for students to easily...

Wrestling / Jiu Jitsu mental toughness

 

     Coach Tanner of Broad Run High School invited Coach Kyle of Double Phoenix Jiu Jitsu to come talk to their team about mental game, dealing with failure and perseverance. Coach Kyle has been coaching and teaching for 9 years.  He has many champions that he and his wife Tammy have developed. 

 

He talked about creating a more powerful meaning In your head for when you “fail”. For example when you experience “failure” in training instead of stacking disempowering meanings like “I’m losing, I’m messing up or making mistakes” focus on making the failure mean something else like “I’m good, I got this, I just need to make an adjustment.” 

 

He also touched upon negative mental cycles where negative thoughts tend to create more negative thoughts, which leads to poor performance.

3 REASONS WHY JIU JITSU IS THE BEST IN A 1 ON 1 SELF DEFENSE SITUATION

 

3 REASONS WHY JIU JITSU IS THE BEST IN A 1 ON 1 SELF DEFENSE SITUATION





  1. A LARGE PORTION OF FIGHTS END UP ON THE GROUND OR IN A CLOSE CONTACT SITUATION AND IT’S TO YOUR ADVANTAGE TO BE GREAT ON THE GROUND. JIU JITSU DIRECTLY ADDRESSES SELF DEFENSE SITUATIONS ON THE GROUND.

 

  1. BEING SUPER CLOSE REDUCES THE CHANCES OF GETTING KNOCKED OUT WITH A SIGNIFICANT STRIKE.  BJJ IS A MARTIAL ART THAT USES RANGE TO ITS ADVANTAGE.  THE JIU JITSU MARTIAL ARTIST KEEPS THE SELF DEFENSE SITUATION EITHER TOO FAR AWAY TO STRIKE OR TO CLOSE TO HAVE EFFECTIVE STRIKES.  WHEN BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU PRACTITIONERS ARE ON THE GROUND IN CONTROLLING POSITIONS THEY ARE VERY UNLIKELY TO BE KNOCKED OUT FROM A SIGNIFICANT BLOW BECAUSE THE OPPONENT CANNOT GENERATE ENOUGH POWER IN THEIR STRIKES LIKE THEY CAN FROM THE FEET. 

 

  1. YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO JUST CONTROL AND SUBDUE THEM UNTIL THE AUTHORITIES GET THERE. LESS CHANCE THAT YOU GET SUED FROM SEVERE INJURY TO YOUR ATTACKER. JIU...
