It was great to hear the reasons for training that everyone shared, which included: self-defense, to get in shape, to reduce stress, and have fun!

Participants were introduced to BJJ, where they drilled some of the basic techniques that are vital to BJJ as well as for self-defense.

Why kids should learn BJJ – by Carter Fisk

There are a lot of reasons why kids should learn BJJ. People often talk about confidence, discipline, bully prevention etc. I think these are all great things for a kid to have and BJJ can certainly give them these things. However, I think the real value in BJJ is something more than those things.

Reason #1 why kids should learn BJJ:  It teaches you how to fail.

I think one reason almost all of my friends are BJJ people is because we know what it’s like to fail on a regular basis. Even as a black belt I rarely go more than a day without tapping. And I wouldn’t want it any other way. BJJ teaches you that losing in the moment does not define who you are. It doesn’t make you a loser. It makes you not fear failure. You fail over and over until suddenly you make leap forward in understanding.

If there’s anything I wish I had known at a younger age, it would be understanding this. Because as I look at my life in BJJ and in business it has been failing until I succeed. I don’t expect anything to work or go smoothly. I just expect that I will keep showing up. And while it took me until my late 30’s or early 40’s to really understand that, I think that a kid who learns BJJ could realize this lesson much sooner.

Frequency Martial Arts Ed TampaMotivation.

It comes in various forms and everyone is motivated differently.  Some people need the reminder that “hard work pays off” while others need to hear “good things come to those that wait”.  Now, I’m no psychologist and will never claim to be, but I think that simply goes to show that we are all different.

What motivates me, may not inspire you and that is okay.

So what is your motivation?  Why do you get up every morning and do what you do throughout the week, month after month, year after year?  What are your short and long term goals?  Maybe you are looking to get promotion or save up to relocate.  Maybe you’re simply looking to pay for a family vacation without the use of the dreaded credit card or you want to purchase a new vehicle.  On the other hand, maybe your goals aren’t about money or material items.  Maybe you do what you do so you can simply spend more time with family and friends doing things that you truly enjoy doing.

Your exercise program should have goals that you are working towards.  Don’t simply go to the gym to go.  What are you looking to achieve?  Are you looking to lose some weight (that’s the #1 reason why people start going to the gym)?  How are you tracking your progress?  I would hope you would use more than just that misleading scale in the bathroom, because as you work out and build muscle; that five-pounds of new muscle is taking up less space on your frame than the five-pounds of fat that you lost.

That’s one of the reasons why we see these transformation photos.  It’s hard to see the changes when you look at the mirror every day.  If it were that easy, we would recognize that we were putting on the unwanted weight before we stepped on the scale to see we added twenty-pounds.  Think of the feeling you get when your jeans become a challenge to button.  Now think about the feeling of sliding in to them and realizing you’re going to need a smaller size.

I was there.  Wearing jeans with a 38” and even 40” waist.  It didn’t happen overnight, but the changes happened so slow that it was hard to notice.  I started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because I was not seeing the results lifting weights and running on a treadmill week after week.  I started making smarter food choices because I was actually seeing results and wanted to achieve my goals.  Once I plateaued, I added DDP YOGA to my workouts to challenge myself.

What motivates me?  It’s my family.  Whether it is going to work or taking care of my health, I’m working towards all of my goals so that we can do more things together as a family.

What motivates YOU?

On Friday January 22, 2016 Frequency Martial Arts hosted a special two-hour Q & A training session with the Eight Time Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion and 5th Degree Black Belt, Professor Robson Moura.

It was a great opportunity for the RMNU Team to ask questions about the techniques that they are using and how to improve upon them.  In addition to drilling the technical questions that students brought up, we wrapped up the event with 40 minutes of solid training.

Be sure to check back for photos from the Saturday Seminar!

Frequency Martial Arts offers classes for kids and adults, but on Saturdays they come together to review the techniques that they have been drilling during the week. This is great for the adults as they work on breaking down the little details of the movements that lead to successful techniques.

Frequency Martial Arts With John GraybealWell, it’s that time of the year when we make a mad scramble to make a resolution for 2016.   Unfortunately, according to Forbes Magazine, only EIGHT percent of the people that make a resolution actually succeed.  That means 92% FAIL!!

So let’s make a plan for 2016 to ditch the resolution and come up with a list of TEN goals we would like to accomplish.  They don’t need to be astronomical to the point of climbing Mount Everest or travel the world. Start small, but make sure they are goals that we have to make an effort to accomplish.   It’s easier to make small changes to work towards a goal and soon it becomes a way of life: whether it’s small changes to our diet, skipping the chips and going with fruit or cutting back on the nights out to the bar to help eliminate our debt.

A great way to start working towards our goals is to start training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and here are a few reasons why:
