Science! Article on “Healthy” Things You Should Give Up in 2017

Hey Everyone,

IFLScience has a list of things that are considered “healthy” that you should give up in 2017. My favorite would be the detox diet: your liver and kidneys exist for the express purpose of making sure toxins don’t run amok in your body. The only detox diet I would endorse would maybe be one where you lay off eating so many Christmas cookies.

Anyway, check it out and have a great day everyone!

Happy Friday! Procrastinating Christmas Elf Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

I’m a bit of a procrastinating Christmas elf at the moment- can someone write a story about a procrastinating elf? I would relate on such a personal level it would be ridiculous.

I know a good deal of businesses (and some gyms) are closed today for the holidays- is your academy one of them? Do you guys have a holiday roll?

Let me know- otherwise have a great weekend and happy holidays!

Article on the Theory of Relativity….of Belt Promotions

Hey Everyone,

The Grumpy Grappler (my coffee hasn’t kicked in yet so I currently feel like I connect with that name on a deeply personal level) has an article on belt promotions and how that particular rank can mean different levels of skill, depending on the academy.

Definitely some food for thought: check it out, and have a great day everyone!

Article on Jiu Jitsu’s Top Earners for 2016

Frankly, I’m surprised that jiu jitsu players make money at all with the sport. But then again I’m not focused on competition with the intent of paying my bills, so there;s that.

BJJ Heroes has an article on the top earners for the year- check it out and have a great day everyone!

Happy Friday! Ugly Christmas Sweater Edition

Happy Friday!

For anyone who is not aware (because I certainly wasn’t) apparently today is Ugly Christmas Sweater day!

Out of all the sweaters out there, personally I find this one not bad per se, just….weird.

I can’t really wrap my head around the idea of Santa having a 6 pack…. or you know, a horse’s body.

Anyway, hopefully you’re all wearing/witnessing all kinds of fun ugly sweaters- have a great day and weekend everyone!

Article on How to Not Quit BJJ

Grapple Arts has an interesting article on how to not quite BJJ- it’s deceptively simple, right? Just don’t do it.

But the author has a great point: there are times when it’s going to get hard, when you’re going to feel lazy or just frustrated with the whole journey, and those are the times where you need to dig deep and keep going.

Check it out, and have a great day everyone!

Article on 5 Exercises Inspired by Jiu Jitsu

Hey everyone,

Jiu Jitsu magazine has an article on 5 exercises inspired by jiu jitsu. Personally, I saw them as “5 ways to face plant and/or seriously injure myself”- but then again I’m also a huge klutz, so don’t mind me.

Anyway, check them out and have a great day!
