    BJJ and Magnesium must go together! or else.....

    Let me start by introducing Functional Medicine . Maybe you've heard of it but don't know exactly what it is. Functional medicine is a medical practice or treatment which focuses on optimal functioning of the body and it's organs, through nutrition, diet and exercise or other holistic or alternative medicines. I thought the tube that begins at my mouth and ends at my butt is inside my body. It's actually no different than the skin on my arms, legs and everywhere else. One could say the inner lining from our throats down through our stomachs to our intestines is actually still outside our body. Anything we eat or drink travels down this tube. The lining inside this tube pulls nutrients ....

  • "The 1st Goal is always the most important one of the day - 6 am Jiu Jitsu Class"

    Nobody told me when to train. They just said come train. My schedule has always been hectic. After 8 am, my day was like a sailboat at sea and wherever the wind took me I had to go. I trained at 11 and 6 pm. Those were the only classes available. I didn't always get to class because of my schedule. Lunch classes were great and I felt full of energy and mentally felt better. At 6 pm I felt sluggish and tired from the days work. I couldn't always make it to the lunch class so I would drag my tired butt into the 6 pm class and put my dinner on hold till around 8 pm. When I decided to run my own jiu jitsu academy in Apex, North Carolina, my first classes were at 6 am. I knew there were a lot ....

    NO EASY LIFE: BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU AND CEREBRAL PALSEY

    Kids who grow up with physical challenges can suffer feelings of inadequacy or low self esteem. Bullying is widespread for these children. We've had many of these kids join our academy and we are witness to many of their transformations. When a child facing adversity becomes confident about themselves, miracles happen. We have a brave student, named Graham, who has Cerebral Palsey. Watching his adaptation and improvement in Jiu Jitsu is proof that being impaired does not mean you are broken or inadequate. Graham's parents discovered from the advice of friends that Jiu Jitsu was a martial art like no other for their child. Much of Jiu Jitsu is fighting from your back or from your knees. ....

  • "My Story of Rebirth and Redemption - Through Jiu Jitsu"

    "My Story of Rebirth and Redemption - Through Jiu Jitsu"

    As a Martial Arts Instructor of such a complicated system as Jiu Jitsu, focus is important. Growing up I took Ritalin to control my ADHD. I remember the daily trips to my school's principle office. Not all of them were to take the Ritalin. I was met with frustration for something I was not in control of. I was unable to articulate what I was experiencing because I just believed it was normal. The negative reactions I received only broke me down further and destroyed my already low self esteem. My mom took me to a psychiatrist weekly and at the end of it all, I am medication free and living a normal and happy life. Wrestling was my jiu jitsu back in the 80s because there was no jiu jitsu ....
