  • GIRLS ARE STRONG!!!

    GIRLS ARE STRONG!!!

    We can all agree one one thing: girls are strong! No matter what the age, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the few combat sports where it is common for girls to tap out boys (and vice versa). Boys and girls train together, as do men and women in the sport. While boys certainly have weight advantages as they age, girls often have other advantages. For example, smaller students find it easier to escape from certain positions and to defend against many attacks more effectively. In Jiu Jitsu, boys and girls have a unique opportunity to learn a strenuous sport where there is no clear advantage that boys have against girls. As often as we say “girls are strong,” there are many ....

    7 Reasons to Start Training Jiu Jitsu

    For those of you know don’t know what Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is, here it is in a nutshell. It is a grappling martial art, meaning the focus is on controlling your opponent on the ground. BJJ is similar to wrestling, but the crucial difference is that instead of the endgame being to pin your opponent’s shoulders to the ground, Jiu Jitsu practitioners master submissions that would incapacitate an opponent, including chokes, arm bars, and leg locks.

  • What does it mean to be a real Jiu Jitsu teacher?

    What does it mean to be a real Jiu Jitsu teacher?

    I remember it like it was today, the first time I started training Jiu Jitsu. I was 13 years old and a school friend took me to a small gym in Posto 6 in Copacabana. The Academy was originally a Judo academy run by Professor Carlos de Tarso, and the Jiu Jitsu was taught by a student of Master Carlson Gracie, Toninho. The gym was very small, I believe the mat was no more than 50m2. We were pretty much the first Jiu Jitsu class there and it was less than a year before the gym closed. One detail that I didn’t know until many years later was that Toninho had also been Jacaré’s first instructor at the Gracie Academy. In the year that I trained there (I received my ....

  • Essential Jiu Jitsu — The immutable principles

    Essential Jiu Jitsu — The immutable principles

    I received a question today from a friend of mine, Leandro Romano who is writing a book about Jiu Jitsu. It made me think, so I decided to share it with you. What are the immutable principles of Jiu Jitsu i.e those that never change over time? In order to have a better understanding of what constitutes an immutable principle, first we have to understand what ‘principles’ are, and what ‘immutable’ is. “Principles are a set of basic and unquestionable rules that govern or guide the interaction between beings.” “Immutable is everything that cannot be changed or transformed.” So immutable principles are a set of basic and unquestionable ....
