May 28, 2012
Here in the USA we celebrated Memorial Day yesterday. I hope you all had a good one, I know I did! In this week's newsletter I asked my wife to write a short article on what it is like to be a BJJ wife. I think you will enjoy her perspective and get a few laughs. We also have another week with JT Torres and his amazing guard play. I'll be flying out to the Mundials in a couple days. I hope to see you there. Please don't hesitate to come introduce yourself, I love meeting out extended BJJW family!

This Month's Expert:

JT Torres continúes this week with a follow up technique from issue 104. From sit up guard, JT makes an inside hook. He demonstrates a transition into x-guard and finishes with a sweep. Remember, trust the position but don't wait around. Keep your opponent off balance and then execute the sweep.... WATCH NOW >

We just had our second child (she was about 3 months old) and we just had finished and moved into our new home which Peter built 90% of, so needless to say our lives were in an ever changing, overwhelming climate. The last thing I wanted or was ready for was to share my husband’s time and energy (whatever he had left after meeting our growing family’s needs) into an extracurricular activity. To say I protested would be an understatement. However, through Peter’s relentless passion for the art and insatiable desire for more, I conceded and agreed to compromise.

I believe we started out with Peter attending one class a week. Which then, (very quickly I might add) turned into 3 nights per week. Shortly there after, it evolved into Peter opening up his own school and teaching his own classes. Now this new extracurricular activity Peter was just going to “try out” looks like (1) Peter owning and operating an online BJJ e-newsletter, (2) still running his own school, (3) having his own BJJ apparel company and last but definitely not least (4) traveling all over God’s creation for interviews, competitions and .....Click Here to Read More
