Nothing like a little hard mat work to burn off those Thanksgiving calories!
I love teaching these kids!
We were excited to have the Rowdy bunch join Zack and Anthony on the mats today. These kids put in a lot of hard work today.
Another great night with our kids! Dalton, Colton, Connor, and Rafael were focused and energetic tonight. It was a fantastic night of training.
I love Sundays! Our students grow and progress each week!

Little late on the post but we had a great night Friday on our Duncan mats. Several of our folks couldn't make class so we had a casual small group class working some stand up strike defense and various sweeps and attacks.

Casey, one of our 4 Stripe White Belts who is preparing for his Blue Belt, taught techniques during both the Kid's and Adult's classes and did great!

Looking forward to the start of another great week of training this afternoon on our Ada mats!

We ended the week last week with some great classes and great work by all of our students!

Jaron did a great job teaching a flower sweep on our Duncan mats to our Kid's and Adult class students!

Ada rocked some great strike defense and take down work.

Looking forward to another set of great classes TODAY!

See you all on the mats in Ada for our Sunday classes!

It's been a busy week at Rebellion so far and we have been loving it! We are getting back into the swing of our main self defense curriculum and it's been a blast!

Everyone on both our Ada and Duncan mats put in some fantastic work and we were able to award a few more stripes!

We also welcomed a new student to our Duncan Adult class! Welcome Geoff! We loved having you and look forward to training with you for years to come!

Congratulations on your promotion to the following adult class students:

Drake - 2 Stripe White Belt
Adam - 2 Stripe White Belt
Keenan - 1 Stripe White Belt

Congratulations on your promotion to the following Kid's class students:

Bryson - 1 Stripe Gray Belt

Our 4 Stripe White Belts have begun teaching and Mariela did a stellar job Tuesday night teaching the bow & arrow choke to both the Kids and Adult classes! Well done, Mariela! Our 4 Stripe White Belts will continue to teach techniques and be evaluated on their abilities, skills, and delivery as a part of their journey to Blue Belt. Something tells us these four individuals are going to become excellent upper belt leaders on the mat!

See everyone tonight on both our Ada and Duncan mats for Thursday night classes!

Fantastic work last night from our Duncan crew!

Guard passes, sweeps, and armbar variations were the order of the day!

Emmett, one of our kids class students, worked hard and after a long week fully exhausted himself and fell asleep on his dad. That's dedication for sure! Even being exhausted can't keep him from the mats!

Jaron did a great job leading class. For our new 4 stripe white belts, teaching and leading classes is absolutely a part of the preparation towards earning their Blue Belts. Teaching is an important aspect of moving into upper belt ranks for us and we love seeing these guys step up to the challenge!

Last night was a special night on our Duncan mats for several reasons!

The most gratifying aspects of having a martial arts school and teaching students is being both a causation of and an observer of our students' growth and progression. Being able to recognize and celebrate the milestones that mark our student's evolution is an honor and a privilege beyond description.

Last night, several of our students earned stripes on their belts. Four students in particular earned their fourth stripe on their white belts - which means they will now begin preparing for their Blue Belts. That is an exciting time in one's BJJ journey for sure!

When it comes to promotions at Rebellion, we do not believe in promoting students simply because we like them, that they attended X amount of classes, or to attempt to retain them as students. That's not fair to the students, to us, or to the art we teach. Rather, we promote when they have earned the given rank without question. That said, all of our students who recieved stripes last night certainty EARNED those stripes.

Congratulations to the following adult students:

Mariela - 4 Stripe White Belt
Jaron - 4 Stripe White Belt
Lane - 4 Stripe White Belt
Casey - 4 Stripe White Belt
Keeton - 1 Stipe White Belt

Congratulations to the following kids class students:

Mia - 3 Stripe Gray Belt
Lane - 2 Stripe Gray Belt
Wyatt - 4 Stripe White Belt

To round out the night, it was also my (Tony) first night back on the mats following surgery. While in reality it was only a short few weeks, it felt like as if I had been away an eternity. I cannot begin to express how great it was to be back in a Gi and on the mats with people I love.

Congratulations again to everyone.

If you want to be a part of an amazing family of dedicated martial artists where you will learn and grow both as a person and a martial artist, today!

Happy New Year to all of you from Rebellion Martial Arts!

Now that it's 2023, one can see a plethora of "new year, new me" posts on Social Media. But instead of posting something like that, I'd like to ask you all a few questions:

In 2023, do you have a desire or desire your kids to:

Get in better physical shape?

Build confidence?

Learn new skills?

Improve self defense capabilities?

Be a part of a growing, caring, and amazing group of kids and adults who come together to push them selves, learn, and have fun?

Challenge yourself to do something many don't?

Train at a school where the instructors care more about their students training than they do their wallets?

If the answer is yes to one or all of these, we formally invite you to experience the Rebellion difference and join us on the mats! Message us for more details!

We are proud students under Master Ricardo Cavalcanti and members of the Cavalcanti Jiu Jitsu International Association! Led by Jeanelle Hebert, holder of 5 black belts in 5 different martial arts (including BJJ), our school offers a comprehensive curriculum that instills real-world self defense techniques!

We offer CLEET CE training hours for CLEET Certified LE Officers.

We are also an Epic Charter School authorized vendor!

Join us in either Ada or Duncan today.

We look forward to seeing you on the mats!

This past weekend fourteen Rebellion competitors competed at the American Grappling Federation 's 2022 US Open BJJ Tournament in Tulsa, OK.

There are many things I can say about this past weekend, but I will sum it up by saying this: our fourteen competitors, a mix of adults and students, worked their tails off to prepare for this competition and when it came time for each of them to face their opponents, they left it all on the competition mat.

Each of them faced their own struggles and roadblocks. Each of them had tough competitors, but they fought with honor, dedication, and intelligence. Each of them represented both Rebellion and Master Ricardo Cavalcanti to the highest degree.

For Jeanelle and I, the focus is not about medals. It's about learning and encouraging our students to measure their skills and abilities against another competitor. It's about the experience. We know that it takes guts to even step foot on a competition mat and the lessons learned by doing so is worth more than any medal.That said, eleven of our fourteen competitors placed in their divisions!

To these fourteen Rebels, please know Jeanelle, myself, Richard, and the entire Rebellion team is immensely proud of you.

Well done, team.

WE ARE RCA REBELLION!

Another amazing week of training for Rebellion occurred since our last update!

Our Ada and and Duncan students are certainly doing what they do best by continuing to put out and train hard!

Our students are absolutely killing it and having a blast doing it! We couldn't be more proud of them and the hard work they are putting in!

This week, we (Jeanelle and Tony) had to travel out of state for an important surgery for Tony. Our Assistant Instructor Richard F. Keenan has been running classes with the help of all of our dedicated student coaches who really stepped up this week to ensure training continued in our absence.

There was zero doubt in our minds that our tribe would knock it out of the park! We have always operated with the mindset that our students always come first. Of course, that's a somewhat generic statement and one easily stated. We broke that down into specific tenants and one of those tenants is as follows:

Develop students knowledge, skill base, and confidence so that they can effectively teach and pass along the art to others as it was taught to them.

For us, that's huge. We aren't just teaching classes, we are developing leaders and teachers on the mats and in life.

This week epitomizes this.

Rebellion, we are beyond proud of you.
