Article #1: Strength and Conditioning for Jiu Jitsu
When all things are equal strength and conditioning matter. More often than not it’s the better-conditioned athlete that wins a contest.
However, many people use the poor methods when training their conditioning in Jiu Jitsu.
This article, written in conjunction with Will Badenoch (my S & C coach), outlines an effective strength and conditioning programme for Jiu Jitsu and grappling sports.

“Position before submission” is a commonly used phrase in Jiu Jitsu.
And in my experience when you understand how to control a position the submission becomes a lot easier.

Article #3: The Power of Yet (A Growth Mindset)
One of the most important elements in success is your mindset but as a martial arts student, it can be very easy to feel a lack of progression. It’s common to hear students say “I’m not good at…” or “I can’t do …”
When a student says these type of things, they’re operating from a Fixed Mindset and believe it’s impossible for them to succeed.
However, by adding one simple word to the end of those sentences / beliefs they can switch to a Growth Mindset and achieve remarkable success.
