It was so much fun learning very practical self defense tactics for work! The instructor was very engaging and likable. The instructor also expressed passion for the sport, their career, their clientele, and their community. They have a great handle on facilitating groups.

We Remember. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Today was a bittersweet game. Our Rookies team (also all our Jiu Jitsu students) donned their Marino Camo jerseys for the first time and we ended up playing a team who had the Navy Camo. It was an honor and a privilege to play in these uniforms, in a country where so many sacrifice to protect our freedom.

We remember and honor our first responders, our military and those who lost their lives on 9.11. We are grateful for you all.

This is a throwback from September 10, 2017 at our Fundraiser for our Stronghold Kids Scholarship Program. Thank you for donating the awesome eats and for eating multiple burgers. 😂

It will be 15 years in October owning a Jiu Jitsu academy. Less than half of that time was I actually teaching. The last 2 years I basically had to build a Kids Program from scratch, with a couple dozen of our faithful students helping us along the way. I hate to admit that I was scared during shutdown not realizing if we would still be open. Behind the scenes I was insanely nauseous/pregnant but puttered through because I knew this all would work out. Back to 200+ kids in our Jiu Jitsu program and a small group rising back up for our Competition Team. We took 4 students up yesterday to GRAPPLING X and came home with 2 Silvers and a Bronze.

So overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you to the GX Family for supporting us since Day 1. One day we’ll reclaim that Top Team Title again. 😂😂 For now, rebuilding has been fun!

Also huge thanks to our coaches, parents and students for their dedication!!

If you happen to have some extra photo space or a camera 😂, we’d love you to snap as many photos as possible as we haven’t had a Belt Promotion like this in almost 2 years! Thanks so much for your support and we can’t wait to see you.

Slowly but surely, Jacob has been brushing off the tournament rust! After an almost 2 year hiatus, Jacob has been expressing interest in competing again. He had quite a few tough losses in November and January, but bounced back and won Silver at Tap Cancer Out and Bronze this past weekend at Jiu Jitsu World League.

For those who have been following Jake’s competition journey for the past 8 years, his struggles and victories can be a lesson to us all. Training for fun and performance can be a delicate balance. The pressure of meeting or exceeding expectations of coaches and teammates can be stressful but at the end of the day, the journey is ultimately yours and yours alone.

We are extremely proud of Jacob and looking forward to seeing him compete again! Thanks again to Coach for seeing him through his 4 matches this past weekend and to all of his coaches and teammates who have invested in his training. See you at the next one!

If you need some inspiration, check out his past matches on his IG:

The wins hit just a bit different after some hard losses. 🙌🏽 Tap Cancer Out is a sentimental tournament for us, and we typically do it all together as a family. Sadly though it was just Jacob today. He was able to jump in last minute and I'm so grateful to Jon and the whole TCO team for putting on another great event. I actually didn’t tell anyone he was doing this tournament until 2 days ago. I mention this a lot, but I can’t imagine the pressure he has when he competes. I accommodated his request to fly solo on his 3 matches and to only give him the time left. He did pretty well:

Won by points for first match
Got collar choked by the Orange Belt in the last minute of the Final (oof when the heck did collar chokes come back around and with kids? 😂)
Arm barred an orange/black belt, one weight class above him for an exhibition match.

Grateful for no injuries and grateful he’s bounced back.

JJWL next month. Let’s go!!
