A little note from Coach Courtney…

        The date for promotions at Hart BJJ, Boxing and MMA in Conshohocken is set for March 25th! Several of our teammates will be tested physically and mentally for their new belts.  The promotions will start at noon with the infamous stand up portion.  Get ready for some FUN!

The men and women on this list have proven they are ready for the next level by their hard work and dedication to training.  All of the coaches in the academy know they are ready, so what’s the point of the rigorous promotions we are known for? In my opinion, this grueling day is for the people being promoted to prove to themselves they are ready for the next step.  Let’s face it,  every match with a fresh opponent is a chance to prove to yourself how strong you are, how determined you are, how hard you’ve worked, and how much you want the next belt.  Jiu Jitsu is a mental game and promotions are a mental test. And we all know that it is hard to use strength when you are exhausted. That feeling you get after several back to back matches, where your arms get tired, your legs hurt, your breathing is out of control… it conquers you or you conquer it. These are all instances where you have to rely on techniques over strength. This is where your mental toughness is proven!

Also, let’s face it, it is loads of fun for your teammates to show you how much they love you with some heavy shoulder pressure or knee on belly! So, even if your name is not on the list, leave March 25th open in calendars! It is a fun day to share with your Hart BJJ family 🙂
