Jiu Jitsu Education

In our In-House BJJ Tourney, we had a referee, time keeper, assistant Ref, and score keepers along with a great handful of people cheering on the participants. good sportsmanship, respect and honor was all displayed with good attitude. Winners got medals but everyone benefited through the experience and not only learned about Jiu Jitsu, but more about themselves, as combat athletes.

Benefits of competing

Inherently. Competitors get more out of Martial Arts than the casual hobbyists because athletes need to display good Jiu Jitsu to help them win their matches. In academy rolling, no one is keeping track and counting score so many are much more casual about performance. But in a Jiu Jitsu tournament, if you don’t create opportunities and make things happen, you don’t score.

Competing in Jiu Jitsu tournaments can really turbo charge your learning. For many competitors, Big jumps are made in levels just by participating in these events, win or lose.

Great job team!  We are very proud of you and looking forward to the continued journey.

See everyone at our next event!
