Anyone know anyone or material on training with cerebral palsy? I have a super mild case, and my game is coming along pretty average for a white belt. Just looking for more insight. Thanks

I'm currently attending 4 classes per week (3 days, two classes on one day), that's all I can manage to due to, well, life.

So I was thinking of how to get better at BJJ with this limitation. Obviously "roll more" would be the best answer, but let's say it's just not possible, so what other suggestions do you have?

- Yoga/flexibility work at home- Studying instructionals

.. what else? For me personally flexibility is a given, but I was thinking this could be a thread with ideas for others as well.

LATE EDIT: I forgot to mention it but I was thinking of ideas to do at home (kids keeping me at home). So going to the gym, running etc is not an option.

I'm not disappointed at all. As a matter of fact, its filling in a lot of holes in my leg lock game. That being said, I've only watched the first few disk.

Hi all,

I am very interested in starting BJJ but I am 38 years old, my strength and stamina is what you would expect for someone my age. One of my biggest concerns is getting injured as I have younger kids that needs my full attention, my job also involves high profile client meetings so I can’t show up with a black eye.

Can anyone convince me that I should not worry about getting injured and my age?

Thank you

If you medal, please show up for the podium. Even though that silver or bronze isn't what you wanted, standing on the podium to accept that medal is the proper way to show acknowledgment and respect for the efforts that your fellow competitors put into their training. And without them, you wouldn't have anyone to fight at these tournaments.

Not enough competitors read the rules and the other information posted on the IBJJF website:

  • (website) You only get 1 chance to weigh in. If you are 0.1 pound or kg over, you are disqualified on the spot. You don't get a chance to go to the washroom or sweat off that extra bit of weight.
  • (website) Know the weight categories and where you below. I saw one WB competitor weigh in 10+kg under the limit for where he was registered. That's not doing yourself any favours. When I told him for future reference that he could have registered for a lower weight division, he said that this gym/teammates advised him that he should enter as a lightweight because of his gi weight (he was less than 2 kg away from light feather.)
  • (website) You need to have ID with you when you weigh-in and when you are stepping on the mat to fight (you give it to the scorekeeper at that point.) The website says you need it "at all times", but obviously if you're just standing around watching your teammates fight, it's unnecessary, but when it's your turn, you need it then.
  • (kind of buried deep in the rulebook) Wear something on your feet at all times up until the point you are about to step on the mat to fight.
  • (technical fouls and illegal moves poster) It shows what moves/submissions are illegal at each belt level. Yes, you can do wristlocks if you're a blue belt. Yes, white belts can do straight ankle locks, but no matter what colour your belt is, don't turn in the direction of the foot that you're not attacking or cross that outside leg in the ashi gamari position across the midline of your opponent's body (reaping).

If you're a white belt, you probably shouldn't be cutting weight. It could blow up on you in a couple of ways: you might feel like you have no energy with you get on the mat for your fight(s), or you could miscalculate things and fail to meet your target. I saw one instance where 1 of the 2 competitors in a WB division was 3 lbs over (so I was told) so his opponent didn't get a fight and, being a WB, didn't have the opportunity to compete in the open weight class. That's really shitty. If the other guy hadn't been registered in that weight class, he could have applied for a refund before the registration check day.

A couple of closing thoughts: the tournament was well-organized (the IBJJF seems to have it down to a science) and ran quite smoothly; and if you're a competitor and you're paying over $100 US to compete, it's really up to you to educate yourself so that you can make it worth your money (the information is all out there.)

Hey everyone!
I'm finally back with a new update and the reason I've been away from posting for so long. I'll be bring out 3 parts covering the BJJ camps I've been to over the summer, here's part 1: USA Camp & Visiting Toronto!
http://pandasodyssey.blogspot.com/2018/09/bjj-globetrotters-camps-part-1-usa-camp.html

These posts cover my adventures over the summer, as for now I'm done my traveling with no future dates for outside Canada at this time, or even inside Canada for that matter. Right now I'm just trying to sort through all the pics and videos and write my stories.

I’ve looked up past posts about rollmore.com and they’ve been great. I’ve been trying to get a hold of their customer service and it just goes to an automated message that just put me on for over an hour before it hung up on me. Idk if this is something new and their customer service has gone down hill? Any recent customer service complaints from them? Or is it just me?
