I'm sure you have watched the popular show on TV, American Ninja Warrior. Men and women challenge themselves on an obstacle course and try to do it in the fastest time. These athletes train for this competition. As BJJ athletes we train for fun, fitness and competition. We all want to get better and improve. I've put together 3 ways that Ninja Warrior training can improve your BJJ game.
Doing the berimbolo or playing inverted guard comes easy for some people. For others it can be difficult or even painful. How about someone doing the double under guard pass and smashing you? Wouldn't being more flexible be an advantage? On the Ninja Warrior show I have noticed the competitors leaping from one obstacle to another. I see them swinging and reaching as far as they can. Sometimes they will just hang there. Be it jumping, reaching or swinging, all of the athletes are doing something in common. They are stretching and gaining more flexibility. Hanging allows the spine to stretch and adjust itself. Jumping builds strong leg tendons and muscles as well as stretching the groin muscles. Swinging and climbing helps keep the shoulder flexible and mobile.
Ever go for a collar grip and miss it? It happens! Want to defend against collar grips? You can do grip training in class over and over. It will get boring after a while. Take your grips to the next level with Ninja Warrior training. Every obstacle is slightly different which requires different strategies. While flying through the air you will have to focus. The fear of falling is also in the mix adding some intensity. In the jumping elements, balance is key. Each obstacle requires your full attention. You can hone your eye-hand coordination as well as balance in Ninja Warrior training.
It's Freaking Fun
I've never seen anyone on the show that wasn't happy to be there. Your workouts should be fun not boring. Jumping, spinning, swinging, climbing, It's like your playing Spiderman.
Who knows, you could be the next American Ninja Warrior! A side benefit is that your Jiu-Jitsu game will be better from cross training. Find a training course near you and get started. I heard that one is opening soon in Deland, Fl. I can't wait!
If you really want to know happiness and realize your dreams, you have to be willing to take a leap of faith despite being afraid.
There are literally hundreds of ways to exercise. From very basic movements to extreme sports. From free push ups in your living room all the way to paying hundreds of dollars for a personal trainer.
Finding the best way to exercise and something that is a good fit for you can be a daunting task at the least.
Enter→ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu a Martial Art. The Martial Arts have been around for centuries. In recent years the words Martial Arts conjures up visions of Danielson at the All Valley Karate Championship and even the octagon of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
The biggest difference in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and most other Martial Arts is the fact that there is no punching or kicking. The concept is based on leverage and technique rather than strength which makes Jiu-Jitsu appealing to more people.
So why Jiu-Jitsu? Let's go over some great benefits! (Not necessarily in order)
Having a supportive family greatly increases your chances of accomplishing anything you want to do in life. Jiu-Jitsu is a worldwide family with common goals to get better at Jiu-Jitsu and life. At Gator Family Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Martial Arts Deland we feel so strongly about family we put it in our name.
JIU-JITSU HAS NO END
As my Professor and friend Robson Moura so eloquently stated “Jiu-Jitsu has no end!” From the very young to the young at heart, Jiu-Jitsu is for everybody. It is ever evolving with practitioners developing new techniques everyday. With that said it is possible to be a lifelong student.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the only Martial Art taught to US Military men and women for hand to hand combat. That's all I got to say about that.
Learning anything new is sometimes a scary proposition. Jiu-Jitsu incorporates submissions and chokes. The goal is to submit your opponent or training partner (not hurt them). When you learn techniques to defend against someone trying to choke you and actually implement them while grappling it is an amazing feeling. Jiu-Jitsu carries over into our everyday lives building rock solid confidence.
Those are my top four reasons of why Jiu-Jitsu. If you train I would love to hear yours. Drop me a line
Find an Academy near you and check it out. If you are in the West Volusia and Deland, FL. area we would love for you to train with us.

If you're just starting out and have been training Jiu-Jitsu for a few
months. You are probably asking yourself “am I getting any better?”
Here's a pop quiz to help you find out!
Am I training regularly?
Am I drilling the techniques my Instructor demonstrates with purpose?
Am I rolling with all my Teammates?
Am I giving Jiu-Jitsu 100%
If you answered”YES” to all four questions. You most definitely are getting
better at JiuJitsu.
The reason you may not see it is simple. Your Teammates are doing the same
thing. They are getting better too.
Sometimes you’re the hammer. Sometimes you're the nail. If you answered
”NO” to any of the questions in the pop quiz. Be prepared to be the nail
Be consistent in your training and you will see results. Sure, life gets in
the way. Missing class sometimes is unavoidable.
Hit an Open Mat. Take a Private Lesson. Come to class early. Stay late.
One day there will be new students in class. You will hit sweeps and
submissions like a pro. You will realize just how far you've come.
The only way to fail, is to give up!
Keep training! See you on the mats!
