Alliance & MGA affiliates in New Jersey

Hey R/BJJ,

I was wondering if there were any Alliance or MGA affiliates in Northern NJ. Moved to Ridgefield not too long ago & previously trained at an Alliance location. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you can only train 2x a week….

would you be better off doing both days Gi or No Gi, or splitting it? I feel like splitting it, you may not have enough time to sharpen the sword as much as if you would have just done two days of one…thoughts?

No Gi Worlds Viewing Thread

Let’s try to limit the amount of posts hating on flograppling. We know that people don’t like them, let’s keep the discussion to the matches.


Several Streams are currently unwatchable for me – Mat 4 is working.

Brabo vs Anaconda?

I tried looking up the difference but I’m having trouble identifying what makes one different than the other. Are they the same with different names? If not, what’s the difference?

Seattle, WA to Carslbad, CA Another moving stayed recommendation thread

I am moving end of next month to Carslbad, CA and likely actually living in Vista, CA. My office is in Carlsbad and it seems like there white a few good looking schools around but I’d love to hear feedback from Reddit. I’ve been training about 4.5 years with unfortunate down time due to surgeries so I’m rusty. It would be nice to find a place with some partners my size-ish and that has some no-gi focus too. I’m 230ish 6′ and blue belt 2 stripes coming from SBG Burien / Gracie Barra.

Tall Grapplers of Reddit: What do you hate most about rolling with shorter partners?

I’m the short guy in an ocean of similar weight but skyscraper partners. Closest dude to my height has 3 inches on me (I’m a stocky 5’7) and everyone is super lanky.

Is there anything I can do to make the body triangles, takedowns, etc easier?

Gi tips and advice preferred!

Thanks in advance!

What are your Bjj LPT?

What are your Bjj Life Pro Tips (LPT)? Does not have to be limited to an on the mat technique. For example maybe you discovered a laundry method that keeps your white gi sparkling white or you have a special exercise that dramatically improved your flexibility. I’ll go first.

With a permanent marker I make a small mark on the halfway point of my belt. When my belt falls off during rolling I just look for the mark so that after I re-tie my belt, the ends are always the same length. No more folding your belt in half to find the middle. Probably only saves like 2 seconds each time, but think of how many times you have to re-tie your belt over the course of a night.

BJJ V.S. The Beard

hello everyone! i am currently a white belt with no stripes, but i do have one thing and that’s a beard. Now my question is how do you bearded ground warriors maintain a manly beard without getting it pulled out during rolls?
