    Sorry, you need to install flash to see this content.

    Hey guys! This past weekend I made a last minute trip out to the 9th Arizona International Open to fight again Ex-UFC Champion Benson Henderson! I wanted to get some fights in before the Pan's and seeing as I missed the SF Open I jumped on the chance to travel out to Arizona and fight against Benson! I had two fights, winning the first by 15-0 (video above) and then losing to Benson in the final by 3-2 on advantages (video in previous post). Benson is an awesome fighter and humble competitor and it was a great experience to fight against him in preparation for the upcoming Pan's! Knocked off some of the competition cobwebs and was reminded of a couple things to correct before the big tournament in a couple weeks! Check out the video of my first fight above!! Osssssssss

    Congrats to New Jiu JItsu Blue Belt in Indianapolis

    Thu, 2014-02-27 14:28 — jotabravo

    A big congratulations to Brandt Basaran for earning his Blue Belt. Brandt has trained hard and consistently for the past 2 years and has begun to develop a very dangerous game. At 16 years old he is minimum age to receive a Blue Belt. So this is a very big achievement!

    The Blue Belt is the first belt awarded for the adults in BJJ. The criteria to achieve this ranks varies widely from school to school. Here at Stockman Jiu Jitsu we run off of a curiculum in our Fundamentals Classes. The curriculum consists of the basic pieces needed to build the foundation of your game. We focus mostly on Jiu Jitsu as a self-defense or fight vs. sport or point fighting. "I always want to be sure that #1 anyone that I promote to Blue Belt will be able to defend themselves using Jiu Jitsu if a situation would arise." says Stockman. We also do a lot of sport Jiu Jitsu but we don't feel that sport Jiu Jitsu should be the foundation of your game.

    If you are looking to train BJJ in the area, contact us about how you can come in for a free week of classes! We welcome anybody from any affiliation.

    See you on the mats!
