  • Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 3: Growth through Failure)

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 3: Growth through Failure)

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 3: Growth through Failure) By Ted Chittenden 2/24/2022 www.madsciencejudoandjiujitsu.com Growth through failure Failure is just part of life, but it is critical for our growth and development both in Jiu-Jitsu and in our personal lives. The most important element of failure is that you first had to have tried. Just trying, especially something new, is a victory in and of itself. It is a demonstration of your courage and desire to grow. This should be something we celebrate, not used as a deterrent from trying again and trying other things. The second benefit of failing, is that we can learn something, ask the question – why did this ....

  • Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 2: Beyond Fighting)

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 2: Beyond Fighting)

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 2: Beyond Fighting) By Ted Chittenden 2/8/2022 www.madsciencejudoandjiujitsu.com This part of “Why Jiu-Jitsu” will focus on benefits that Jiu-Jitsu can bring into your life that go beyond the ability to fight and defend yourself against other human beings. Typically, people come into my academy for either the ability to defend themselves or to get into better shape. Without question, our Jiu-Jitsu can provide the individual both of those things, but I really do not think that is what keeps people around year after year. It is all the other benefits that yield from Jiu-Jitsu that keep people coming back. In reality, I am in the business ....

  • Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 1: Self-Defense Perspective)

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 1: Self-Defense Perspective)

    Why Jiu-Jitsu? (Part 1: Self-Defense Perspective) By Ted Chittenden 1/27/2022 I have practiced martial arts for most of my life. I have studied various types of martial arts over the decades, and one question I often receive is why Jiu-Jitsu? The short answer is because it works. However, the term “works” can be a bit more complex and it extends far beyond human combat. Part 1: Self-defense perspectives. From a combative/self-defense perspective, I am more inclined to favor arts that have more emphasis on grappling versus striking, especially regarding self-defense. Those that know me, might think this to be hypocritical on my part; questions ....

  • Elite Sports BJJ Gi Review

    Elite Sports BJJ Gi Review

    Team, Attached is a short clip of Dave testing out an elite sports BJJ GI (it is the blue gi). Link: https://youtu.be/Mja3-mJMEhw Here is our review: + It is a nice lightweight gi + It held up well being trained in + They come in a variety of colors (white, blue, black, green, etc) - The only thing to be careful of is the sizing chart on the site is incorrect. It is 1-2 sizes smaller than our regular club gi. Dave typically wears an A2 / A3, the gi in the video was an A4. I recently purchased a pair of boxing gloves and will post a review of them as well (or check them out in the academy - I'll put them with the loaner gear). If you like the look of the gi, or want to ....

    Is It Too Late to Start BJJ?

    Is It Too Late to Start BJJ? (original article: https://bjjfanatics.com/blogs/news/is-it-too-late-to-start-bjj?rfsn=2849964.cf47fe&subid=jjdaily2#)
    Make BJJ Part of Your Life Going Forward
    Many times a new kid walks through the door of the BJJ gym I call home. When I say kid I mean kid…11-14 years old! Oh how amazing it would have been to start BJJ at such a young age. Unfortunately I didn’t know Jiu Jitsu existed at that age. Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s I was never exposed to a martial arts sport of any kind. I grew up with the traditional baseball, football and golf in my house. In my 30’s I was raising 4 kids 3 of which were boys. I ....
