Invictus Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Academy

Comments

Hey there! I'm doing a school project on how jiu-jitsu (martial arts) are good for the mind and body. If anyone has some info or articles they could send my way it would be much appreciated.
Still getting that bag work in
Last day for kids competition class good job guys👏, Thank You coaches. Ready for Grapplefest next Saturday!!!
Team Invictus!! 🥋🏅
Although competition is not for everyone. Not only is our head instructor making the trip to Tucson to coach but he has decided to lead by example & compete at the Bullpen Worlds Absolute. We will be following along at the academy to support & see how our competitors do!
I'm hoping some parents or members can point me in the right direction with my 9 year old daughter. I have a very important question to ask? My daughter has been through some stuff in the past, like she suffers from past abuse trama, she has PTST, depression and anxiety. My family tell her I should keep her in counseling but I'm at this point with her where she doesn't want to open up to me she doesn't want to see me hurt or cry! A lot of people tell me I should put her in Brazilian jiu-jitsu or martial arts it will help her boost up her confidence bring up her self-esteem and focus more on her attention span?? She loses focus a lot her attention and mind is somewhere else! Due to the past history of trauma she has gained some weight she is food for comfort. But I'm at the point where I have my mom in ear telling me my daughter would not be good doing martial arts or Brazilian jiu jitsu because my daughter is heavy set my mom keeps telling me she's lazy! Some people tell me that martial arts and Brazilian jiu jitsu will help my daughter which self-defense stand up for herself against bullies and learn how to boost her confidence and attention span? I don't know what to do I have my own mom telling me I'm going to waste my money because my daughter is not very active but I should put my daughter in dance classes are singing classes that she would make a friend in there instead what should I do parents or members of Brazilian jiu-jitsu or martial arts classes please help??? concerned mother!!
Thanks for allowing me to train and the technique 🙏🏻
Apply by this Saturday if you want in!!
Great photos of our training last Wednesday night, by the always talented Sal Gomez. Definitely enjoy every time he drops in to shoot.
Super proud of these amazing kids!! Great Job team Invictus!
Special thanks to Ashley Jean Remy for organizing today's seminar!

"When encouraged to fight fire with fire, remember, the fire department uses water"

This quote is a great representation of Jiu-jitsu...

Jiu-jitsu is about utilizing leverage,

finding weaknesses in an otherwise strong opponent...

It's the art of problem solving... ON PEOPLE.

The mistake many new students make is in thinking it's all about strength and athletic ability...

Instead of looking for a door they just attempt to kick through the wall...

Against a skilled opponent, this will almost always result in failure.

Remember, for those that are just starting out:

Look for the "door" and if you don't see it, ask a coach or higher rank to show you it.

That will be your key to improvement.

"You don't have to be perfect to start, but you do have to START to ever come close to perfect"

Remember; we all felt nervous or intimidated when we first walked into the gym...

That's normal.

But, like anything...

You quickly realize that fear or uncertainty wasn't necessary.

Confidence in anything comes from doing...

The more you do the more confident you'll become.

See you on the mats!

"The man who conquers himself is greater than the one that conquers a thousand in battle"

Many who train may never step into a ring...

And that's perfectly fine by us.

But VERY FEW that train will not discover the benefits that come from learning to master oneself.

That's the thing about what we do...

It's not just about combat.

In fact, fighting is a very small part of it.

It's about testing ourselves...

Pushing past the limitations we (and society) place on us...

It's about learning how to control our minds and our bodies when they feel completely out of control.

That control we learn stays with us... not just on the mats... but any and everywhere we go.

And it's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.

Drilling is arguably the most boring part of Jiu-jitsu...

But it is the key component in creating great practitioners.

Sometimes, the things we dislike doing have the greatest benefit to us.

So remember,

Take every opportunity to keep drilling.... not just until you know the technique, but until your body can't help but do the technique when you have the opportunity.

See you on the mats!

Every joint on the human body has a direction it was intended to move...

Jiu-jitsu is an attempt to create a new direction.

Typically against the will of your opponent...

"Time only matters when you're in prison"

I just met an investor who's group owns a Triple Crown Race Horse.

He was giving a talk on Race horse investments and a question came up about training young Foals (Baby horses) to make them champions.

The question was regarding trainers, and how much time they had to put into a horse before an owner could expect some kind of results. (Overhead cost question)

His answer was "Time only matters when you're in prison"

The amount of time going into training is irrelevant if the trainer isn't effective or the horse doesn't want to learn.

Fighters are exactly the same...

Putting in work doesn't make you a champion... putting in correct work, intelligently and having good coaches can get you to your goals.

So reach out to your coaches, ask questions and bring us the problems you're having so we can help you solve them more quickly and effectively.

In Muay-Thai your defense can also be an offense.

Checking a kick (blocking with your shin/knee) can cause damage to your opponents leg.

It is very important that this tactic is trained for precision.

"All Sunshine and No rain Makes A Desert" -Arab Proverb

We all need struggle in our lives to truly be happy and grow.

Yet so many people would rather choose comfort than struggle.

They are content to avoid challenge...

"Happy" to not leave their comfort zones

And fool themselves into believing they are fulfilled by their choices in order to prevent having to change.

This is one of the greatest fallacies of life.

To remove challenge, difficulty and struggle is to remove what human beings were designed for.

For those wanting to live life to the fullest, look for challenges and be happy...

We will see you tonight on the mats!

If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong.

While we work hard and push ourselves every day in the academy,

We still have a lot of fun doing it.

After all, we aren't just trying to get better at fighting...

We're trying to relieve the day's stress,

Trying to build better relationships with teammates,

And Ultimately, trying to build a space and atmosphere that you don't have to motivate yourself to attend.

A lot of people trying to get in shape or improve their lives often quit the gym because the activity becomes boring, tedious or they don't see results as soon as they've hoped...

But very few people quit activities they enjoy that bring them pleasure and fulfillment... the byproduct just happens to be getting in better shape and improving their lives.

Win/win...

See you tonight in the mats!

Remember; as I said last week....

Everyone is on their own journey, nobody is born knowing everything.

Keep focused on your goals and work on improving.

Stop comparing yourself to those around you, and start giving yourself credit for the things you are accomplishing.

See you tonight on the mats!

Tonight is an important night!

Earning belts in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a huge milestone...

And should be treated as such.

It takes years and years to transition between belts...

Jiu-jitsu is a practical martial art, we want our belts to mean something.

We are not belt factories, pumping out black belts after 4 years of practice...

There is a lot that goes into achieving ranks in BJJ..

And those rare instances when ranks are rewarded are very special.

So, join us tonight for a Belt-test night of free rolls and shark tanks to help celebrate with those who have earned that next level.

"Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.”

Nobody is born an expert at anything...

We all start as a beginner, not knowing... and slowly... through time and dedication, we gain knowledge and expertise.

Yet, we as humans continually find ourselves comparing where we are now to someone far ahead of us in our journey...

Which on paper seems ridiculous...

Nevertheless, it is very common.

New Student's fear they aren't experienced enough or not capable of starting out and keeping up.

Not realizing that every person they think they are trying to "keep up" with once started where they are today.

Moral of the post:

Remember, this is your journey. You are starting in something you've never done before, and our coaches fully understand this.

Don't be afraid to take that first step in your journey... your future self will thank you.

We get asked by people all the time, does our gym require you to sign a contract...

The answer to that is always, no.

While other gyms and even big box fitness clubs require you to sign an agreement/contract,

Often as long as a 1- year commitment.

We don't believe in it.

Instead of focusing on policies to prevent our students from being able to leave, we focus on creating and environment that makes them want to stay.

After all, if someone doesn't like our academy or what we teach, why should they be forced to stay?

That doesn't help them nor does it help the rest of our community.

Our goal is and always will be to create relationships and harbor an environment where people are excited to attend.

As the old business saying goes: "Contracts exist where relationships fail"

See you all tonight on the mats!

"Always be yourself and have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and try to duplicate it."  Bruce Lee

Confidence in oneself and one's abilities comes from practice and preparation.

No matter what it is you do...

Any lack of confidence is a lack of control in the circumstances, scenarios, or environments surrounding you.

If you generally feel unconfidenent in yourself, or your abilities...

Then the way to get more confident is to start by challenging yourself with something you didn't think you could do...

And follow that with what's called "victory-stacking".

"Victory-stacking" is the process of collecting lots of small victories and wins for yourself.

They don't have to be big...

If you're afraid of starting a Muay-Thai or Jiu-jitsu class... simply walking in to observe a class is a Victory.

Keep collecting these small victories and acknowledging them to yourself...

Soon, everything that scares you will start becoming a whole lot easier.

In a world of sledgehammers, be the sword.

I hear it all the time and have even experienced it first hand in fights...

An individual thinks because they lift weights that it gives them some kind of skill in fighting...

When I worked in Alaska, we had an iron worker always wanting to scrap with people outside of the hotel/bar...

He was a big guy, Barrel chested and all his co-workers warned us "He could bench press almost 500 lbs"

As if somehow bench pressing was a useful skill in a fight...

I will say, lifting weights is a great supplement to training.

If Two fighters of equal skill level fought, the better condition athlete (strength/cardio) would absolutely have the advantage.

However, strength without technique is like driving a racecar without a steering wheel... the engine may be powerful, but it won't do you any good on a track.

The moral of this post is, when training to improve in martial arts and fighting, focus on technique... muscle is an extra tool, but not a key to success.

As far as "Alaska guy" went... a 500lb bench press didn't save his neck... 😉

So get on the mats and start learning technique!!
