    Three Things to Consider Before Competing

    Tue, 2013-07-16 19:59 — Benjamin Bieker

    Everyone that trains in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has the want to compete in it whether they express it or not. A lot of people that want to compete freak themselves out more than anything else can, but what you have to remember is that everyone else is just as freaked out as you, at least at the lower levels. While you can do as much training, conditioning, and outside training as you want to prepare there are some things that will help you compete even if you do not think about them. So, take a look at three things you need to work on and consider before hopping on the mat to compete.

    2013 Gracie Open Registration Opens

    Tue, 2013-07-16 18:16 — Benjamin Bieker

     The Gracie Open for this year has opened and now people can register. As of right now it sits at $75 to register for just gi or No-Gi, but if you want to compete in both it just cost $100. That is not bad considering you will get to compete in two different tournaments for $50 a piece. The event will take place on August 3rd in San Francisco at the Kezar pavilion. The prices will go up on July 24th at midnight so be sure to register before then as you will pay $10 after.

    BJJ Survey Results

    Wed, 2013-07-10 10:46 — Benjamin Bieker

     Recently, Brian Riggsbee, a San Francisco native, did a survey of nearly 700 people about the sport of BJJ. These were people of all shapes, sizes, ages, belt levels, and nearly all of them are actively training. He asked them questions about what inspired them to join the sport, about the injuries they have faced, how much pain they have, what supplemental training they do, and among other things if they had ever been choked unconscious. As weird as it sounds even 29% percent admitted to it, but it makes you wonder how many didn't cop to it.

    So you want to get sponsored by a big name gear Company?

    Fri, 2013-06-28 12:08 — OTM News

     I know you’ve dreamed of it.

    Getting sponsored by Manto, Keiko, Shoyoroll, Atama, Moya Brand, etc. etc. but what exactly does it take to get sponsored by big name companies?

    Maybe you don’t want a big gear company, maybe you want a certain restaurant or a hair pomade company to keep that pompador hair looking good. (Dan Hubler has some amazing hair)

    Do you have what it takes? Are you willing to do what it takes for that sponsorship? (No TLI)

    What does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu mean to you?

    Wed, 2013-06-26 13:05 — SamuelSpiegelman

     Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu means many things to many people. Some train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with the hopes of being a black belt world champion. Others are just looking to get a good work-out in after a hard day at work and learn something. For me, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu became my life.  When everything around me was out of control, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu kept me in control and was the only constant in my life.
