Just submitted my brother

I know it’s not a big achievement via a class or in a real life situation, but I just submitted my arrogant brother. He came with me to my gym for a few months, but never really got the culture of BJJ, and left.

Well tonight, me, the less athletic, shorter, fatter, uncoordinated brother, made my big brother, baseball star, basketball natural, winner of a sibling pass out. I know I’m being vain, but it felt good to show him a move or two.

Thanks for letting me share

Voluntary break from jiu jitsu..

Hi all,

Just after some words of wisdom – I’ve been training for about two years now.. However the “spark” just doesn’t seem to be there anyone. I mean I want to train, but at the same time I don’t.. I guess it’s easy to wish for an end result without putting any effort in.

Anyway I’m going overseas for a 5 week holiday soon and obviously in that time won’t be able to train.. Has anyone taken time off (not bc of an injury or anything) and upon returning started to really get back into it? I don’t really ever intend to quit fully, as jits is entirely a hobby of mine. But would a break here do me good? Thoughts?

E: I’m also only 24 so time is definitely on my side

The Mental Side of BJJ: Focusing, Concentrating, and Battling on our Inner Demons

There will come a time in our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training when we’ll feel weak, defeated in front of a challenge. It’s inevitable whether you’re a white belt or a black belt to have those so-called off days – or when things don’t seem to fall into place. Often times, this is where we separate […]

Thinking about trying BJJ. Anything I should know before the first class?

I’ve been bored out of my mind lately sitting in my apartment, and BJJ sounds like it’d be a badass new hobby and a great cardio workout to compliment my lifting. Plus the gym in my town happens to be the Diaz brothers’ gym so that’d be pretty dope. I’m super nervous about walking in for my first class, though. I have no idea what to expect. I’ve never done a martial art before and I hate being the awkward new guy in any kind of situation. What’s a full class usually consist of? Do you guys have any tips or things you wish you knew before your first class?

Farting in Class

This 16 year old kid keeps farting in class and he thinks it’s funny. How much farting is appropriate? Should I talk to coach about this?

Anyone order a Gameness from BJJHQ recently?

I think it was a rolling deal. Wondering if any of you know the price of the Gameness that was recently on bjjhq maybe 3-4 weeks ago?

The gi would have looked like this: http://cdn1.bigcommerce.com/server2600/5df4c/products/344/images/702/Blue_Pearl_Gi_Side__27807.1428421458.1280.1280.jpg

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Recommended stretching routine for flexibility in grappling and mma?

So after every session, I like to stretch to increase my flexibility. Could you recommend a good stretching routine? As of right now, I’m not sure if what I’m doing is enough or even right.

Would be awesome if the stretching routine included stretching that helps with the rubber-guard tendons and ligaments if you understand what I mean.
