It is no surprise to me that we recently had our biggest class to date with 17 ESBJJ OG's earlier this month.
If BJJ is a goal, learn to stay consistent. It is easy to have enthusiasm for fitness and self betterment in January during resolution-season. However, much of the beauty of martial arts is in the journey. As they say, if you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit.
January also brought lots of new friends to ESBJJ. Jesse, Luke, Chaz & Leo - welcome to ESBJJ.
Little Dragons - Now 3x / Week
Our children's program for ages 6-12 is growing as well! I'm so pleased that such a great group of parents has entrusted ESBJJ with helping to create young martial artists.
Children's classes are Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30p - 6:30p and Saturday mornings from 10a - 11a. As always, the first class is free to try.
Youtube Jitsu: Reviewing the arm drag.
One of my favorite things about the arm drag is its versatility. It can be used standing as a wrestling move, or on the ground to set up submissions. It is truly a move that bridges the gap between wrestling and jiu jitsu. Here is a quick variation of the arm drag from one of my favorite resources, Cary Kolat.
Zain Retherfordis also slick with the arm-drag. Notice how he harnesses the spinning momentum of the footwork to drag his opponent to the ground. There are also severalBJJ applicationsof this move.
See something you like on YouTube? Just let me know - we can try to work it in.
Reminder: 6 am classes Tuesdays and Thursdays!
Below 👇: not our graphic but I felt it captured the essence of training at 6am so I went with it.
With 3-5 average attendees, our morning classes are a great way to get training out of the way for the day and to get more individual attention and trouble shooting for your technique.
