While we didn't have classes today, that doesn't mean work didn't happen.

The behind the scenes work that goes into making sure we continually improve our skills as well as the skills of our students is never-ending. But, the work is both worth it and rewarding.

Of course, part of the work is the administrative aspects of running a business, but the real work occurs when we spend countless hours drilling, discecting, and working through various techniques and concepts and marry that with how to best deliver these techniques to our students. It's an in your face, cerebral process that is both challenging and downright fun.

BJJ, and martial arts in general, are a constant learning process. Even when you make it to Black Belt, there's still more to learn.

A whole lot more.

As we bid adieu to 2023, we would like express our love and gratitude to both those who join us on the mats day after day and those who have dropped in and trained with us from other schools. We wouldn't be Rebellion without all of you and we are so thankful for you.

To our upper belts who teach classes and step up when they're needed: you all are the glue that holds us together and we are deeply grateful for you.

To Master Ricardo Cavalcanti: THANK YOU for everything you do for us here at Rebellion, the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a whole, and for all of your affiliate schools in the Cavalcanti Jiu Jitsu International Association. Your knowledge, skill, and leadership is beyond reproach and you're a heck of a human being.

Rebellion has always strived to be different than the norm and throughout 2023 we have continued to live and grow by our mission statement. We have built and are continuing to build an extraordinary school with a level of camaraderie and brother/sisterhood that is unparalleled.

2024 will be the best year yet and we are looking forward to that journey with all of you!

If you haven't joined us at either our Ada or Duncan location, now is the time to challenge yourself and make a positive change in your life! You won't regret it!

From all of us at Rebellion, we wish you all a very prosperous New Year. Please be safe and responsible tonight if you chose to celebrate the new year.

See you all on the mats on Tuesday!

We finished out Tuesday classes in Duncan last night before our holiday break. Classes were small, as to be expected, but we had a blast regardless!

Great work everyone! We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing everyone the week following Christmas for classes!

Shout out to Dewy Wetter for making and installing an awesome display rack in our Duncan location for our team's medals (not everyone's medals are pictured) and a great place to honor our BJJ lineage!

Yesterday was a lot of fun during the kids competition day at the American Grappling Federation US Open in Tulsa!

Our Rebellion kid competitors fought hard, but most importantly, they had fun and learned a thing or two about themselves and their jiu jitsu. We are beyond proud of each of them for having the courage and tenacity to compete!

Today, we have a couple of adult competitors who will be competing later today. Good luck to them!

It's been a GREAT couple of weeks at Rebellion! There were many tremendous nights of training that occurred in both our Ada and Duncan locations. Our students who are competing in the upcoming AGF Tournament in Tulsa have worked hard and are beyond ready for this coming weekend!

We also welcomed some new students in both Ada and Duncan, and we are excited to have them!

We love our growing Rebellion family, and we know you will, too! Come check out the Rebellion difference in both Ada and Duncan!

As for our social media abscense... our "social media" guy had to be in Arizona for a couple of weeks for his other job. We apologize for him being a slacker.

Ok. It's me (Tony). I'm the slacker. But I'm catching up now. 😂

Many thanks to all of our assistant instructors in Ada and Duncan for helping teach classes while I was gone! It was much appreciated.

See you all on the mats tonight in Duncan!

On this day of Thanksgiving, we are certainly thankful for many things, but we are beyond thankful for our Rebellion family, all of our students, and certainly our brother and mentor, Master Ricardo Cavalcanti.

Rebellion literally started in our living room with one student. We would move furniture out of the way and fold out mats so we could train. It is truly awesome to think back on how small it began. That humble beginning grew and soon we had our first actual location in Ada, even though it was a metal building with no walls, other than the metal shell, no AC, and the mats we had were piece-meal combination of old wrestling mats and fold out mats.

But we continued to grow.

From there the Ada location began to flourish and, thanks to F. Keenan and a lot of help from our students, walls started going up, new mats were installed, plumbing and a bathroom were installed and built, and heat & AC came along. Now we have a beautiful location that we love to train in.

Then, we continued to grow.

We started a second location: Rebellion Duncan. We started this second location in a privately owned building in a housing addition in Duncan. We had those same piece-meal mats then and the whole location had the feel of the early days of Rebellion. It was truly a special time.

Then, Rebellion Duncan started to grow.

Now, Rebellion Duncan has continued to grow and now we are in a wonderful commercial location in Duncan with beautiful mats. A location we love to train in.

Three years ago, if you said we'd have two flourishing Rebellion locations, we would have called you crazy. But here we are.

And, yet, we continue to grow.

This is all to say a truly heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our Rebellion students. Without each of you, we would not have a school. You are all amazing people and we couldn't do any of this without you.

We are very thankful for Master Cavlacanti. Under his leadership and mentorship, we have flourished. We are forever grateful for everything he has done for all of us at Rebellion.

The pictures below show the Rebellion Ada location in the early days; what Rebellion Ada looks like now; the Rebellion Duncan location in its early days; what Rebellion Duncan looks like now; a group picture of many of our students with Master Cavalcanti, and a picture of us with Master Cavalcanti and two other Cavalcanti Black Belts!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. We wish you a warm and loving holiday today full of gratitude.

Earlier today, we had the pleasure of hosting an Instructor Development training course for our upper belts and soon-to-be upper belts.

This was a great opportunity for us to invest in our Rebellion leadership. Today's instruction wasn't about jiu jitsu technique, but rather a true focus on the finer points of teaching and presenting the art of jiu jitsu.

We truly enjoyed sharing the knowledge gained from our combined 50+ years of professional speaking and instructing. It's one way we hope to further and preserve the art we all have come to love so dearly!

We have a deep gratitude for our leadership and the students who desire to get better at not only their jiu jitsu, but also their abilty to teach. Without these folks, we wouldn't have a school.

Not all of our upper belts and soon-to-be upper belts could make it this time, but we look forward to catching them up at the next one!

About last night with Professor Roger Gracie...

Simply put, it was a fantastic night of training with a legend. The experience furthered our relentless study of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and our desire to continually refine and perfect this martial art we love.

We would like to express our deepest appreciation to Professor Rafael Lovato Jr. for graciously allowing a few of us to attend Professor Roger's seminar at Lovato's School of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts in Oklahoma City. Thank you all for your hospitality.

Aside from the world class instruction, it was wonderful to catch up with a few old friends and meet new ones. It was truly a great evening.
