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.

Morning everyone! Hope you had an amazing Mother’s Day. Quick announcement, just a reminder today we have Teens, Kids + Tots Belt and Stripe Promotions! We will have just a short class with drills, but this is an amazing opportunity to see our Promotions Ceremony and the future of your kids’ Jiu Jitsu journeys. We will be starting at 4:30PM, but still plan to come at 4PM for classes and drills and good parking. Tots are welcome to come early today as well.

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.

05/02/2022

We’re excited to be having our first Teens/Kids/Tots Belt + Stripe Promotion of the year! Join us with Professor @michaelcusi_jj, Professor @johnnytama and Coach Raquel/@strongholdmom on Monday, May 9 at 5PM. Don’t miss it, this one is going to be amazing! We are so proud of our students and are grateful for their support as we rebuild our program. Spread the word, bring a friend!

Build it, they will come. 🏰

Our Teens and Kids program has grown immensely since late last year. Missing 20 of our other teens from this photo. Grateful is an understatement!

Reminder that we have no kids or teens classes Thursday-Saturday. Normal schedule (with new classes!) will be resumed next week.

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 @jcook_jj 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: @jacobmichaelcusi

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!!

On Friday, January 28, I will be teaching a BJJ seminar on Tournament Preparation, Parts 1 and 2. Part 1 will focus on effective and efficient training methods to help students properly prepare for an upcoming tournament. This section will be divided into the two primary areas 😉 Part 2 will focus on learning how to be more than just “training fodder” for those who are competing - AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, how to stay healthy (and un-injured) during these times. Also, I’m going to share never-before-seen formulas to help students understand the equations waiting for them at tournaments! Shh 🤫 Only those at my academy have seen these formulas ☺️
