This past Saturday's seminar at Armezzani Jiu Jitsu Academy goes down in the books. What a great time on the mats outside in beautiful weather while grilling out with Professor Louis' infamous BBQ. Truly an epic experience. Thanks for having us out. It is always great to visit and see the amazing work you all are doing. Looking forward to next time!

You will leave here changed and transformed.

On the Mats, My Child Is Not Autistic | Team Passos

A beautiful testimony from one of our Zoo-Jitsu Coaches:

"From the 'it’s not about Jiu Jitsu' files, I heard an extraordinary (and for me, emotionally impactful) statement from a parent tonight – “on the mats, my child isn’t autistic.”....

teampassos.com From the “it’s not about Jiu Jitsu” files, I heard an extraordinary (and for me, emotionally impactful) statement from a parent tonight – “on the mats, my child isn’t autistic.” Over the years, we’ve had a lot of kids come through that carry the label ‘special needs’, in one way ...

Gain Emotional Development, Not Just Technique | Team Passos

A great read by Professor Tony: Gain Emotional Development, Not Just Technique

"One of several ways we work with our students to help them develop emotionally is to give them room to explore escaping from a vulnerable position or to implement a technique. We don’t always immediately jump in to fix a technical error unless they are in a dangerous position. This allows the students to learn from their own mistakes and to face and overcome momentary defeat and the disappointment of not performing as well as they would have liked. This is not an easy approach in the moment..." [Read the full article below.]

#kidsbjj #zoojitsu #emotionaldevelopment #lifeskills #foradultsandkids #coachesrole #personaltransformation #teampassos #jiujitsu #itsnotaboutjiujitsu #kidsmartialarts

teampassos.com The most important responsibility we, as Coaches, assume while instructing our kids in the art of Jiu Jitsu, is not providing technical tips to promote flawless performances.

BJJ Tip: Give it all you've got on the mat. Don’t conserve energy in your warm up or when you are repping the techniques. To do so is to cheat yourself. You will have reinforced a habit that when it comes time to roll, you will have wired your mind to conserve energy, ultimately training yourself to be lazy. This will lead you to get your butt kicked. - Professor Tony Passos

We had an amazing seminar by Professor Andre Galvao. It is always a privilege and honor to share the mat with him and learn from him. He dropped some incredible knowledge about Jiu Jitsu, competing and life. He truly embodies courage and leading by example through serving and treating everyone with integrity.

Congratulations Professor Josh Pike on receiving his black belt today. This is a huge milestone accomplishment. The end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Here's to a mind blowing new season.

A special shout out to our affiliates.To Professor Louis Armezzani and the Armezzani Jiu Jitsu crew, Professor George Wehby and the Lionheart Jiu Jitsu crew, and Coach Heriberto and the 804 JIu Jitsu RVA crew for making the drive/flights here from such long distances. To Professor Jeff Gordon and Infinite Fighting Concepts for hosting. And The Winchester Jiu Jitsu Academy for coming out to represent so well as always.

Thanks to every single one of our students whom made it out today; for your support, commitment and trust in what we do and making this such a special BJJ community and family. There are no words to describe how grateful we are to each of you. You all make this truly a special place.

It’s an honor to host and share the mat with Andre Honda at Team Passos HQ today. Honda trains at Almeida Jiu Jitsu in São Paulo and stopped by on his way back from having competed at the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation World Championship this past weekend.

It’s incredible to see the level of talent that Professor Caio Almeida has at his academy. Not only is their Jiu Jitsu world-class, but this is one great group of people. Parabéns, irmão.

Honda will be back at the academy during this evening’s classes. Be sure to stop by and say hi!

The event will begin 6/8 at 10:00 am and take place at Team Passos affiliate, Infinite Fighting Concepts in MD with a potluck BBQ to follow. This is going to be epic!

"My role as a Jiu Jitsu Professor is not to constantly point out everything to avoid. To be preoccupied with what not to do, makes it impossible to focus on the right thing to do. I believe the best way to learn Jiu Jitsu is by reverse engineering the techniques in order to understand the concepts at play. Then we will be able to apply them in a variety of other positions, being equipped to navigate situations on the mat." - Professor Tony Passos

We’re here in Long Beach for the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation World Championship and having a great time. It’s always great to reconnect with friends and make new friends here. Plus we’re watching incredible matches and learning a lot. The opportunity to be here is something we do not take for granted and are extremely grateful for. We’re super proud of all the students and coaches from our entire team that dedicate so much in order to perform at the highest level of Jiu Jitsu competition.

Why Jiu Jitsu is so Transformational

Check out Professor Tony's blog post: Why Jiu Jitsu is transformational

"Jiu Jitsu has proven to be a catalyst of transformation in so many people’s lives. Over and over we hear one inspirational success story after another. From the underdog rising to victory, being able to overcome physical, emotional, and mental barriers, to Jiu Jitsu being the vehicle out of poverty. The transformation in people’s lives through the art of Jiu Jitsu is undeniable. I have experienced such transformation in my own life and have the privilege to continually witness it first-hand in my students and coaching team. But what is it about Jiu Jitsu that is so transformational?"

teampassos.com Jiu Jitsu has proven to be a catalyst of transformation in so many people’s lives. Over and over we hear one inspirational success story after another.

There’s a difference between learning a technique and understanding a position. You can’t understand a position without rolling and mat time. It’s like going to a restaurant looking at a menu and expect to be full.

BJJ TIP: “Technique by itself is nothing if there is not a basic understanding of position and space. Jiu Jitsu is a war on space control. If I control the space, I win. If my opponent controls the space, he wins. The basic principle is: whoever is attacking must physically connect with his opponent in order to control the space. The very same principle works the opposite: if I want to defend an attack, I need to create space to then be able to escape.” – Professor Tony Passos

The more time you spend in a position, studying the position, the more you will understand that position. The more you understand the position, the more comfortable you will become with it. The more comfortable you are with that position, the more likely you will be able to take advantage in both applying that position and defending it. Take the time to explore the beautiful art of Jiu Jitsu.
