BJJ Training Camp- with Photos!

our training camp this past weekend was full of some good hard jiu jitsu training sessions, along with some other activities to keep us limber and in shape. Pretty much all the photos are courtesy of Coach and teammate Maggie, so let’s get to it!

We started off the camp with some joint mobility exercises, because you know, it was Saturday morning, and it was a good way to warm up the joints. An added bonus, we had a black belt from one of our fellow Ribeiro affiliate schools, Ben Eaton join us: hooray!

Next came different stations which included body weight exercises and other sorts of activities.

training camp: Saturday Stations


multiple training sessions,

Team lunches,


more drills and training sessions:


Even some hot yoga, a visit from a chiropractor and a Sunday morning run across the Ben Franklin Bridge with the teammates who were crazy enough to do it.


All in all we put in a lot of hard work, and it was a pretty fun weekend 🙂

  1. That looks like a fun weekend! I actually did an interview with Ben Eaton recently.

    How many people did you guys have show up for the camp?

    • Katie

      Ha, small world. Ben and his wife are super nice and it was great to have them hang out with us all weekend. 🙂

      Since it was for two days, a lot of people were in and out for different portions- I would say we had about 25 to 30 average on the mats. I think. I’ll have to double check, but that sounds about right to me.

      • Yeah Ben and his wife are great people. I met him back at a tournament in 2011 after a match together.

        I’ll have to consider doing a camp thing for the guys down here. Was there any cost or was it free?

      • Katie

        I would say do it: it was free, even though people tried to give our coach money anyway. We spent Saturday night all together as well and watched the UFC fights- it good training and team building time for an overall pretty excellent weekend 🙂

      • Sounds like a great idea. I’ll have to plan it and do something like that for the students. Thanks for sharing.
