Tell us what inspired you to train? 

I was inspired by my son Wyatt to start training again. Seeing how much he enjoyed the atmosphere made me realize how much I missed it. It is also a way for me be a good example for my kids.

What are the things you enjoy about BJJ? 

Education, every day you can learn something new about yourself

Can you give us some examples of experiences you had that makes it worth training? 

Training at the same academy as my son has helped us bond on a different level. We are learning together and can see each other on common ground outside of the usual father son relationship

What has so far been the most surprising experience for you when Training? 

The biggest surprise has been my lack or cardio. Grappling endurance is whole different thing

If you were to pass on training advice to your fellow training partners, what would it be? 

Be patient, chase the knowledge, and don’t quit.

Top 5 Reasons Why Getting Kids Can Benefit from BJJ

Top 5 Reasons Why Getting Kids Can Benefit from BJJ

There is so much activities that we can have our kids indulge these days. Modern life has made it very convenient for anyone who enjoys the occasional distractions this goes the same for our kids. Why not get them into sports for a change. After all, the old approach to raising your kids is also the best way. I, for one, am a big fan of BJJ as being awesome for kids.


Reason #1: Kids need goals.

Yes. You heard it. Starting them young and teach them how to set goals for themselves. Trust me, you will thank us in the future. The entire structure of BJJ is centered towards multiple set of goals presented over a period of a student's growth. Setting up our kids to appreciate goals will teach to strive further!

Reason #2: BJJ is a safe form of martial arts

Yes. BJJ also known as a gentle art is as safe as it could be. I have yet to see a kid lose an eye. Believe it. It's true. Aside from safety standards set by BJJ schools in the United States, instructors take the best measures in making sure that the environment is safe enough for both instructors and students. Although, let me remind you that not all schools are lead, created the same. In my future articles, I will show you a definitive guide in choosing the best schools for your kids.

Reason #3: Competition is healthy

We all love to compete. Human beings are hardwired to best another. however, in BJJ, there is no such thing as losing. Kids will learn the valuable lesson of winning; that there is always grace in winning. And in losing; where there is no such thing, only learningg. 

BJJ INLAND EMPIRE

Reason #4: BJJ teaches discipline

Discipline distinguishes successful people from the mediocre stock. It is discipline that determines a person's value. What does BJJ have to do with it? Quite a lot. BJJ teaches discipline. A disciplined instructor, BJJ professor produces disciplined students. Trust me. This will go a long way for every student.

Reason #5: BJJ is healthy.

here are countless studies that provide concrete evidence that physical activity has numerous health benefit. Why not choose an activity for those young ones that is more fun and interactive. Play actually actually ends between the age of 10 to 12. During this period, a kid will then establish his liking to physical activities. Keeping them physically active is the key to a healthy lifestyle.

Saturday, January 19th was a special day her at our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in Corona. We hosted a open guard workshop with special guest Instructor Coach Felipe, however it was a disguise for a few very special surprise belt promotions!

In the middle of Coach Felipe teaching a technique, Professor JP approached saying he needed to fix something. Alarmed, Felipe started backing away, only to realize what needed fixing was his belt color being changed out. What an exciting way to receive a belt!
