Jiu-Jitsu, self-defense—what it has to do with your kids

Jiu-Jitsu, self-defense—what it has to do with your kids
Marcelo Dunlop

Paraphrasing a movie, have you stopped to think why your friends are scared when they’re alone?
For the same reason we get afraid. Not just the simple fear of something bad happening, or someone big and mean attacking us, or getting beat up and hurt.

The problem with “bullying” is that the cowardly act doesn’t end there. What follows is always overwhelming and traumatizing shame. The shame of not being able to protect one’s self from the cruelty of the world.


For this new affliction of the century specialists prescribe countless remedies, psychologists and talks with parents. But they ignore a simple preventive measure: the practice of martial arts.

Jiu-Jitsu, as masters Carlos and Helio noted back in the 1930s, is the most effective way to inject confidence and a sense of security into kids, beings inexperienced in this mad, mad world.

Make Jiu-Jitsu that bodyguard ever present with your kids, armor to be used anytime, anywhere. Sign your kids up for Jiu-Jitsu. They’ll never walk alone again


Parafraseando o filme, você já parou para pensar por que seus filhos têm medo quando estão sozinhos?

Pelo mesmo motivo que nós sentimos medo também. Não é o simples pavor de algo ruim acontecer, ou de ser agredido por alguém maior e cruel, ou de apanhar – e doer.

O problema do “bullying” é que o ato covarde não termina ali. Depois, vem sempre um vexame insuperável e traumatizante. Uma vergonha de não ser capaz de se proteger sozinho da maldade do mundo.

Jiu-Jitsu contra o bullying

Para esse “novo mal do século”, os especialistas receitam inúmeros remédios, psicólogos, conversas com os pais. Mas ignoram uma medida simples e preventiva, a prática das artes marciais.

O Jiu-Jitsu, como mestres Carlos e Helio notaram desde os anos 1930, é o modo mais eficaz de injetar confiança e segurança nas crianças, seres com pouca experiência nesse mundo tão maluco.

Faça do Jiu-Jitsu o guarda-costas que está sempre com você e seus filhos, e uma armadura pronta para usar em qualquer lugar, até no banho. Matricule suas crianças no Jiu-Jitsu. Eles jamais estarão sozinhos de novo.

recent Jiu-Jitsu black belt Gene Pace, 78

Lessons from recent Jiu-Jitsu black belt Gene Pace, 78

Gene Pace earned his black belt at 78 years of age last Thursday.
Gene Pace, a good-natured 78-year-old grandfather, has been training Jiu-Jitsu at Gracie Barra Costa Mesa, California, for the last 15 years.
Upon earning his black belt last Wednesday, Gene was featured in the “Daily Pilot”, newspaper in an article by Sarah Peters with photos by Don Leach, and with the story came some lessons.

Gene trains at GB twice a week, which seems about right for an elder practitioner not to suffer too many injuries.

The promotion ceremony gathered around a hundred of the new black belt’s friends and fans.

“It was pretty touching,” admitted Gene with a chuckle.


Mike Buckels, a teacher at GB Costa Mesa, highlighted the greatest quality of the senior 5 black belt (because there’s no such thing as a senior 8 or 9 division).

“He’s Mr Consistency. He never misses a class, ever,” says Buckels, who only had one black belt under him before Gene. “He does exactly what he’s taught. If you show him a position, he’ll perform the movement perfectly.”

Buckels says he’s judicious when pairing Gene up with a sparring partner but stresses that he is not to be underestimated.


Gene can hang with me in training—I’m over 80 kg—and takes me down. He usually trains with guys about 55 years younger than he is,” says Mike, pointing out one of the peculiarities of Jiu-Jitsu, a gentle martial art where technique can overcome stamina and brute strength.

Gene Pace started practicing martial arts as a way to exercise and to give his grandchildren something to get excited about.

“I thought to myself, ‘They’re not going to kill me, and I might just learn something new.’ Once I got started, I thought, “Am I going to give up and embarrass my grandkids? No way, I’m not going to disrespect them like that. And everyone kept training,” recalls the burly granddad.
Pace’s finish-what-you-started attitude was key in making it to black belt.
Now how about you, dear reader, have you been finishing what you start? Or is there some Jiu-Jitsu missing from the way you see things?
Comment below on what the main thing you learned from Gene Pace is and if there’s someone with a similar story at your Jiu-Jitsu school.

15 Tips for Good Hygiene in BJJ

15 Tips for Good Hygiene in BJJ
I've been on the proverbial soap box since we started publishing BJJ Weekly, and if you've been with us for a while you're probably sick of hearing about it. But still every week we get emails from people who aren't sure about what's expected, or they need to deal with a stinky nasty training partner. I asked my friend Bon, the owner of Fight Soap to give us his take on good hygiene. I recommend sharing this article with new training partners so they know right up front what's expected! - Bill

Our lives on the mat revolve around training. As practitioners of the gentle art, we put a lot of attention on BJJ technique, drills, and strategy. What a lot of us tend to forget is that practicing good hygiene before and after training is as important as showing up in class. Being clean not only prevents diseases, but it also makes the experience of rolling enjoyable for everyone.

Here are some practices that we encourage for BJJ:

Come to class in a freshly-laundered Gi. Not just air-dried and sprayed with an odor neutralizer; you want it washed and dried.

Come to class wearing freshly-laundered knee braces, ankle supports, etc. (If you wear these)

Trim your finger nails and toe nails regularly.

Remove any form of jewelry such as necklaces, earrings, and wedding rings before rolling. As these can cause open wounds for you or others.

Freshen your breath or chew gum before rolling. No one wants to know what you’ve eaten beforehand.

Sanitize your hands at the very least BEFORE entering the mats. (Picked this one up from Bas Rutten)

If you sweat profusely during rolling, have a towel nearby to wipe it off with OFTEN.

Always watch out for any form of open wounds that you may have acquired during rolling, this includes friction burns from the mats or gi. Tend to these wounds immediately as these can get infected easily in our training environment.

Wear a rash guard underneath the Gi whenever possible (Some schools actually encourage this).

Use paper towels to wipe away any pools of blood or sweat on the mat and dispose. Do not use your own personal towel to wipe these away. Disinfect the affected area immediately after.

Wear sandals or any form of footwear when using the restrooms, especially when you have to re-enter the mat area.

After training, wipe away any excess sweat, wash up if possible, and get into a fresh change of clothes. Do not linger around wearing anything soaked in sweat.

Hit the showers as soon as possible right after training. Take as hot of a shower that you can tolerate, and take the time to scrub your body with soap very well.

All sweaty clothing and equipment should be taken out of your bags when you get home, and set aside to be washed. Wash your gym bag too if possible.

Finally, volunteer to clean the mats and equipment after class every now and then. It’s a great way to pay homage to the mats where you learn the art. It’s also an excellent way to keep your training environment clean, and show that you care for team like family.

We hope that a lot of these tips aren’t new to you. Remember that in BJJ we have to be very considerate of other people and the environment that we train in. We don’t have any katas in BJJ. Like tango, it takes two to roll. Getting another person sick, or just giving that person a plain horrible experience while training is the last thing that we should ever want. The diseases common to the sport are highly-contagious and can spread to the whole school. There is nothing wrong about paying attention to good hygiene at the gym. It’s actually the responsible thing to do, and it benefits everyone in the end.
