  • Meet Future Black Belt - Xavier Richard

    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.
    He has always flown under the radar but his dedication and perseverance has definitely paid off. He has challenged himself as a member of the demo team, and is pushing hard & growing fast in his last stretch before he earns his Junior Black Belt. 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. ....

  • The 3 Tiers of Inspiration

    The 3 Tiers of Inspiration


    I feel grateful! I recently was reminded about how fortunate I am to be surrounded by people that push me and inspire me in life and in martial arts.
    No matter what the problem is, I believe that people will always be the answer. People we surround ourselves with are the reason we get inspired to change, to overcome, to fight, to be better, stronger, kinder, more patient. If you know me, you might not expect me to say something like that - I am pretty introverted by nature. But I learned that there is a limit to what I can do alone, even and especially when it comes to personal growth, I need help and support. Inspiration is what I am talking about. That fire within you that keeps you ....
