WHAT IS JiuJitsuAdvantage.ninja??
There is a constant Strength vs. Technique debate in Jiu-Jitsu. Rightfully so as Helio Gracie was a but a small, frail 16-year-old when he first started instructing Gracie Jiu-Jitsu with his brother Carlos. The entire premise of Jiu-Jitsu is that a smaller, weaker person can defeat a larger, stronger opponent using leverage. This is a wonderful part of Jiu-Jitsu and we’ve seen it successfully put to the test over and over again. However, we also know that once the larger, stronger opponent learns Jiu-Jitsu, strength is once again a very important factor.
Also, naturally, as strength and conditioning coaches, we have spent our entire careers believing the stronger, better conditioned an athlete is, the greater his potential for success in his chosen sport. JiuJitsuAdvantage.ninja forgets the debate and blends fantastic techniques from high-level practitioners as well as strength and conditioning advice from professional strength and conditioning coaches who just so happen to be passionate about the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We fully believe that there is a place for strength and a place for technique, and their place is TOGETHER. By addressing both, you, the ninja in training, become a more complete athletic package.
