    Brazilian jiu-jitsu: 'A soul-destroying, ego-clipping sport that's sunk deep into my veins' by Elena Gomez

    With its strange outfits and obsessive fans, Brazilian jiu-jitsu can seem cult-like to those on the outside, but for practitioners the martial art is surprisingly compassionate Jiu-jitsu in action: ‘It’s a refreshing ego boost to be able to pin a person to the ground,’ Elena Gomez says. Photograph: Christos Psaras/Getty Images Three years ago – five months after moving cities and one week after quitting smoking cold turkey – I turned up at a mixed martial-arts gym in Melbourne for the free trial class I’d booked: Introduction to Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

    Post done by Josh Hinger on his personal Instagram account!

    This a Great Post by Josh Hinger. Very useful and inspiring for in and out of our bjj journey. We had to share and hope you like.Enjoy! The calendar year is like a training round. You start off optimistically, with some sort of roughly strewn together plan of attack that you put together at the last minute because that’s what everyone says your supposed to do. But actually your plan is just like everyone else’s... simply to dominate whoever and whatever is in front of you. But as the training round progresses, you run into some unexpected bumps.

  • Strong As A Mother: Why It’s So Important For Mothers To Train In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu By Jill Gill

    Strong As A Mother: Why It’s So Important For Mothers To Train In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu By Jill Gill

    If you’re a mother like me, you’re probably behind schedule right now. In fact, I had planned on writing this article two days ago, but here I sit on Mother’s Day writing this on my phone as my newborn nurses and my preteen waits for help fixing her hair. This is motherhood. While motherhood defines my greatest role, it is not my only definition. I thrive on going against the grain, which is why I choose to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Women are making up a larger and larger part of the BJJ community, but mothers in particular are a vital part of the sport’s continued growth. Not only are mother’s often the ones signing their young children in to BJJ ....

    New Research Shines More Light On How Jiu-Jitsu Can Help Treat Veterans’ PTSD By Kevin Gallagher -September 25, 2019

    Sometimes the toughest injuries to cope with leave no visible wounds. I suffer from long-term concussion issues that can sideline my training for weeks at a time and leave me crippled with anxiety and depression. The most difficult part is I appear to be fine — no cast or brace on my leg, no stitches on my forehead, just the pain I hold on to. Many of our US servicemen and women suffer PTSD when they return stateside and rejoin the civilian world fighting similar invisible demons. ​Gino Collura, who holds a Ph.D. in NeuroAnthropology and is a BJJ blue belt, believes his research provides evidence to support a positive correlation between active participation in jiu-jitsu classes ....
