My Submission Fight Co "MANIA" Gi
  Just ordered my first Gi from overseas and thanks to a twitter conversation, I have managed to wrangle a discount in return for doing a review of their new “Mania” Gi that was released last week.   I’m very grateful for that, so a big thanks to Submission Fight […]

Submission Fight Co MANIA Gi Review.

This takes work
What’s Your Real BJJ Grade?   So in the same vein as my last post, I am going to beat my usual procrastination (the same procrastination that has a half dozen blog post drafts in my unpublished folder) by just writing what I want and publishing it straight away, without […]

BJJ Belt Cheating

Hi, Sorry, Apologies, *bow *bow *bow   I’ve not written anything for ages, because this is supposed to be a JiuJitsu Blog and as I have not done any JiuJitsu for a few months I figured I had nothing much to write about. But now I realise that I don’t […]

Kung Fu Beats BJJ….or Crouching Tiger Hidden Mats

Don't race me to the merging lane then slow down once you're in front!

BJJ Stinks!

Marc Tai competing in his second tourney and getting his first Medal! Well done mate!
Haven’t had time to write much recently, which is also illustrated by my lack of training recently too. I am however back in the gym/dojo/academy (What actually is the official name of the place you roll?) now and have started doing my hill sprints, body weight and kettlebell circuits, running […]

    I’m not moaning about it at all, I promise! As long as the injury isn’t detrimental to continued training, I almost enjoy the odd blow, knock, bruise, etc. Makes me feel like I did something worthwhile with my evening. After all, nothing good comes easy right? Remember that […]

How often do you walk out of class injured?
