  • Passion - Martial Arts, Life & Choosing the Road Less Travelled

    Passion - Martial Arts, Life & Choosing the Road Less Travelled

    This is what passion means to us:

    We love martial arts. We love doing it, training it, watching it, talking about it, thinking about it.
    We love how it’s helped us and shaped us but most of all we love sharing it and inspiring others. And we strive to ignite that passion in the people we share it with so that one day roles are reversed and we are learning from and being inspired by them. The world around us is built in a way that encourages conformity, that celebrates us if we fit ourselves into a box that is defined by what other people think we should be. We all do it. We lay out our own expectations of how everyone else should be and we in turn succumb to the pressure of ....

  • 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 ....

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

  • 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. - ....
