  • Strong on the Platform and the Mats!!

    Congratulations to our student Charissa who participated in her first raw powerlifting meet this past weekend. Not only was this her first time stepping on the platform, but she placed 2nd place in the women's raw open division and of course she had to wear some Underground Jiu-Jitsu swag to represent! Her total lifts for the meet were: - Squat: 242.5 lbs (110 kg) - Bench: 126.75 lbs (57.5 kg) - Deadlift: 253.0 lbs (117.5 kg ) Charissa had been diligently training for over a year, primarily at home, and it is absolutely satisfying to see improvements on the lifts.

Here are 10 reasons why enrolling them in Jiu-Jitsu will be beneficial and why they’ll love it too! 1. Builds confidence: With every new move or skill your child masters, you will instantly see an increase in their overall confidence. Achieving the goals they set out for themselves and receiving recognition for that increases children’s self-esteem and the way they view themselves. 2. Promotes physical activity: It’s pretty apparent that we live in a ....

  • Bullyproof Through BJJ

    As many parents know, bullying today has become much more sinister and underhanded with the widespread use of social media. Every month, millions of children and teenagers either miss school or extracurricular activities in order to avoid bullies, which leaves parents scratching their head on what to do. Parents getting directly involved may lead to more backlash and having teachers intervene seem to do nothing. So how does Brazilian Jiu Jitsu play into all of this? We have had lots of first hand experience in teaching the students in our Kids Program how to defend themselves. In the U.S., 1 out of 5 students report that they have been a victim of bullying. We have had several students of ....

  • Why should women do Jiu Jitsu?

    The whole basis behind Jiu Jitsu is for a smaller person to be able to take a bigger opponent to the ground and control them. This is usually done by using grappling techniques that can throw off the bigger opponent's center of gravity, which then allows the smaller person to subdue and neutralize their opponent. In many cases, women tend to be smaller and have less physical strength than men. Unfortunately, that automatically puts women as targets for violence and crime. It's important for women to learn how to protect themselves if the need ever rises. Other reasons besides self-defense include increasing flexibility, gaining situational and body awareness, building confidence, ....

  • 9 Tips on Choosing a Jiu-Jitsu Academy

    So, you want to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Awesome! But, where to start? I mean considering a person can spend more than a few years (10 years average) to receive their Black Belt, picking the right gym counts. Besides, you might want to invite friends, family, co-workers to come check the school out so you would want to have this reflect well on you after all. I cannot stress this enough, don't make this too serious. It's not like you are picking a medical or business school; most may go through a few gyms, just to find a school that agrees with their philosophy, training style, overall atmosphere, and of course energy between the other students. Through this, and ....
