It’s Never Too Late: 71 Year Old Becomes A Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt

March 4, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Sports |

People often ask me if it’s too late to start Jiu-Jitsu and I always answer with a resounding "NO!"

And I’m always reminded of this quote:

New York is 3 hours ahead of California, but that does not make California slow. Someone graduated from college at 22 but waited five years before securing a job. Someone became a CEO at 25 but died at 50. Someone became a CEO at 50 but lived to 90 years. Someone is still single, While another is married with children. Everyone in this world works based on their own time zone. People around you might seem to be ahead of you. That’s total fine. Some are behind you. Everyone is running their own race in their own time zone. Don’t envy or mock them. They are in their own time zone and you are in yours. Life is about waiting for the right moment to react. So RELAX. You’re not late You’re not early. You’re very much on time

Alan Phillips is an extraordinary human being. At the age of 71, he just earned his brown belt and has a message for everyone no matter of their age.

Female Police Officer Credits Jiu-Jitsu Training For Saving Her Life During Fight With Dangerous Suspect

police officer kristen richmond credits jiu-jitsu training for saving her life during fight with suspect

West Virginia law enforcement officer Kristen Richmond survived the fight of her life and gives credit to the self-defense training she pursues outside of work.

Richmond, a three-stripe BJJ white belt at West Karate of Weirton in West Virginia, has been training jiu-jitsu since August of 2016.

Here is Richmond’s story:

Early this morning I found myself in a full-out fight with a 5’11, 195lb collegiate male athlete who was gooned up on an unknown drug (I’m assuming some sort of dissociative anesthetic). It was me and him for about five minutes. During said altercation, my glasses were shattered and knocked off my face, none of my radio transmissions got out, and a ton of equipment was stripped from my vest and duty belt. I managed to stay in the fight and maintain some control despite exchanging punches and knees with the subject. I secured one of the subject’s hands in cuffs and maintained that grip throughout the majority of the fight. I also released my K9 partner and she did exactly what she trains to do; however, all the K9 bites, punches, knees, and baton strikes did not deter this guy. He wasn’t there. The drug had consumed every part of him. After about 5 minutes of fighting, my partners finally found us (due to lack of comms) and, after several more minutes of fighting, we were able to secure him in cuffs ending the fight.

Navy Seal Jocko Willink Thinks Jiu-Jitsu Is A Real Superpower

February 3, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Sports |

Jocko Willink, retired commander of the Navy SEAL Team Three Task Unit Bruiser, decorated Iraq War veteran, and all-around badass dude talks with Joe Rogan about why he thinks Jiu-Jitsu is a super power.

He furthers expounds the virtues of Jiu-Jitsu in an interview with Mens Journal about why he thinks it is the #1 activity to improve your life:

“Jiu Jitsu is a great workout both mentally and physically. You want to be strong for it and flexible for it. You want to have explosive energy and you want to have endurance. So it’s a very good all-around physical conditioning tool. Jiu Jitsu is probably the No. 1 activity that I could recommend to someone to improve their lives overall.”

It doesn’t hurt that it is a physical skill that I’d imagine that everyone would want to have. It’s another method in which to defend yourself, if absolutely necessary. Who wants to leave the door open to being dominated physically by another human being? Jiu Jitsu gives you the ability to not be dominated by that person, and to me that’s real peace of mind. I don’t have to worry about that when I’m walking around in the world. You know that you are able to handle yourself.

Belt Rank Doesn’t Matter! Purple Belt Dominates Black Belt During Sparring Session

February 1, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Sports |

This video clearly shows why you can’t judge a person solely by their belt rank. I know blue belt competitors who can dominate and frequently submit hobbyist purple, brown and even black belts.

David Vs Goliath: Rooster Weight Chokes Out Super Heavy Weight

January 22, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Sports |

The story goes that one of the pioneers of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Grandmaster Helio Gracie was one of the smallest and weakest of his brothers and adapted the teachings of judo and Japanese Jiu Jitsu to develop the origins of the art as we know it today.  Time after time, Helio Gracie would pit himself against strong, formidable opponents to prove the effectiveness of his techniques.

Helio’s tradition lives on today, as we have seen countless indivduals take on bigger and stronger opponents and defeat them with skill and technique. Estevan “the Giant Slayer” Martinez is one such indvidual, who time after time has risen to the opportunity to test his skills by taking on opponents who outweight him by at least 100lbs!
