Jiu jitsu brotherhood wisdom

"To maximize your potential as a jiu-jitsoka, it’s not enough to just head to class every day and go through the motions. You need to approach your training from several angles.

I have a particular system which has worked for my students and I. It’s called the A.C.T. Model. This stands for Attribute Maximization, Conceptual Understanding, Technical Knowledge. This article will provide a general overview of this model. " -

Very interesting concept from Nicolas Gregoriades who has just stuck it up on his website: Jiu jitsu brotherhood (goto the link to read the whole article) . Ive mentioned Nic on here before and I quite like his cerebral approach to the complex problem of grappling. I think Ill hit him up for a private lesson one day just to get a better insight into his way of thinking,which may or may not be for me. I tend to think quite alot about BJJ and Ive often found it as much as a hinderence as an advantage.

Matt Benyon over at Martial farts has been churning up some super awesome hyper mega material that makes me want to headbut a horse with creative jealousy. Go there, buy his shit and support him so I can be regularly entertained and inspired.

Havnt been able to train as much as Id like due to Woking (where I live) roadworks which add another 20 mins onto my journey and make me late for my train. I dont want to ride there on the motorcycle because itll end up being a one way ticket to a private with helio. Its getting lighter though so perhaps soon.

Yeah I like the way Nic G writes, very thoughtful. His animal workout video is still the best bit of training footage for BJJ I have ever seen (and utilised).
He's defo on my top five list of guys I want to hit with a private or seminar some point soon.
Who knows, he might pop in to Mill Hill when he gets back from SA.

Nic was definitely one of my favourite instructors when I was at RGA HQ, along with Jude and Marcio.

Still, I've never been too keen on the "strength is important! Get beefier!" thing (though it's undeniable that strength makes a massive difference), but that's probably my own laziness coming into play. ;p
