  • Martial Arts & Personal Growth: Understanding Violence

    Martial Arts & Personal Growth: Understanding Violence

    One thing I often get asked by parents wanting to sign up their kids in our kids Jiu Jitsu program is whether or not it’s going to teach them some kind of self control. Often, even if they’ve heard about the benefits, they have some kind of doubt about enrolling their kids in something that will teach them to kick and punch and throw and grapple.

    The fear is that it will promote violent behaviour in their kid.
    It’s always been hard for me to answer that question. Although martial arts has helped me in many ways, I am not someone that leans towards violence in general and have never been, hence, I have never needed to control that in myself. It was self evident to me that ....

    Meet Future Black Belt - Xavier Richard

    It is hard to believe that it has been 7 years already since Xavier started his journey in Jiu Jitsu as a Little Ninja.

Xavier - we can see that this goal has sparked a new energy in you. We're so happy of the improvement and progress you have shown in these last few months. Way to go Xavier!! ....

  • Repetition is Not Enough

    Repetition is Not Enough

    Too many times we hear things like "practice makes perfect" or "repetition is the key to learning", "drills build skills". As coaches, leaders or high performers, whatever your field is, those idioms are part of everyday lingo.
    We live by them, attribute our success to them and then make it a non negotiable for others who follow to achieve mastery or success. But even though the message we're trying to share is truth, it tends to be lost in translation and misinterpreted. The mere fact of repeating a task or a drill several times will not necessarily make you better at it. You can't just show up and mindlessly go through the motions and expect to be better for it after 10,000 hours. - ....

  • Courage in the Face of Adversity

    Courage in the Face of Adversity

    "There's a worthy and noble ambition: strength in the face of adversity. That is very different from the wish for a life free of troubles." - Jordan Peterson
    Our most precious achievements are the ones achieved after our most challenging journeys. Really, has anything you've been proud achieving come easily to you? It doesn't mean that you couldn't enjoy the journey. It doesn't mean that you had to suffer through it. Although you probably felt pain and disappointment throughout, you kept going. You had a dream, a vision a goal that kept you going or maybe your back was against the wall and giving up wasn't an option. Either way you knew where you had to get regardless of the obstacles. ....
