We had an awesome time at the Community Roll this month! For those who aren't familiar, a community roll is when a bunch of different Jiu Jitsu schools get together and roll. It allows you to go with a variety of different people and practice your skills with new and unfamiliar partners. The great thing about Jiu Jitsu is that the mat keeps everything real. How do your skills compare to another student from a different school but who's at the same rank? Overall, it's an amazing gathering of martial artists who have a mutual love and respect for the art. I can't wait to do it again!

This week Professor Jason Eggleston gave us all an assignment: 1,000 reps of a fairly simple technique series. We're supposed to drill these everyday, aiming for a total of 1,000 reps. Professor Eggleston says this is the not fun side of Jiu Jitsu.
-Trap and roll to guard pass
-Trap and roll to 1/2 guard, to "dog fight," to back take
-Trap and roll to Ashi Garami, to sweep
I accept this challenge.
We might be a relatively new Jiu Jitsu School, but heading into our fourth year of operation we feel more confident than ever. Being new doesn't mean we're taking it easy. Every night we have solid roll time, in both Jiu Jitsu and Judo.
That being said, we have some announcements that are long over due.
Chris Smith was promoted to purple belt, and Brennan Strimple received his first stripe on his purple belt. Leigh Strimple earned her first stripe on her blue belt. Andrew Bragg earned his blue belt. We might be new, but we train hard.
Train diligently, and you will reach your goals. We have programs for everyone.
