Kids BJJ Promotions at Hart BJJ, Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts

Students, I know you may have some questions about what to expect on the 7th.  Here is an idea, Yellow belts, get ready to run the warm ups. After the warm ups, students will demonstrate certain techniques in front of the instructors and their families.  Here are some examples: breakfall, stand-in-base, sprawl, shrimping, trap and roll, bump sweep, armlock, and 2 takedowns.  Remember, these are just a few of the techniques we want demonstrated, not all of them. Next, everyone’s favorite part, sparring! This portion of promotions is incredibly rigorous, yet fun for our students.  We try to push their limits.

PARENTS! How should students prepare for the upcoming promotions? First, attend as many classes as your schedule allows in the upcoming weeks until promotions. Next, it is important for parents, talk about Jiu Jitsu with your kids at home.  If you have the space, practice at home with your kids. Encourage as much fun with Jiu Jitsu as possible over the next couple months.  Classes will pick up in pace, so it important to keep the fun in Jiu Jitsu without pressure of success.  As coaches, we know your kids are ready for the next level! They do not need any pressure added to the 7th.  Rather, help us build up their confidence.  If you feel like your son/daughter might need an extra push getting ready for promotions, speak with Coach Courtney about private lessons.  These 30-45 minute lessons will help to get your son/daughter sharper and more prepared for promotions.  Finally, the week leading up to promotions, make sure your son/daughter is hydrated and well rested.  This will make a huge difference as well as having your son/daughter drink at least 2 glasses of water before coming into the academy.  Also, make sure they eat a good breakfast.  You are more than welcome to bring healthy, energy providing snacks for them on promotion day.  (***Please, do NOT bring peanut or tree nuts!  See the list below for some snack ideas.)

      Promotions will be an exciting day! You all have wonderful, talented and dedicated kids.  The coaching staff at Hart Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and MMA is very excited for the 7th.  Your kids are ready for the challenge 🙂
Healthy Snack ideas:
Low-sugar, high-fiber granola bars
String Cheese
Rasins
Fruit
Apple Sauce
Cliff protein bars for kids
Veggies (carrots, snap peas, celery, etc)
Rice cakes
Pretzels
Crackers

How’s your hygiene at Hart BJJ, Kickboxing and MMA?

How’s your hygiene at Hart BJJ, Boxing and MMA?

We at Hart Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and MMA are dedicated to providing you with a clean training environment. We need your help to do so. Please familiarize yourself with the following tips to keep yourself and our facility safe and sanitary.

Prior to training…

Do not train if you have a virus,  infection or fungus.

Do not shave just prior to training as this leaves one vulnerable to skin infections.

Be sure your finger and toe nails are trimmed and clean.

Freshen your breath and your body.

Sanitize your hands.

Wear laundered clothing and Gi’s to training.

Seal or cover your broken skin. Do not train with an open wound.

Wear a rash guard, even underneath the Gi.

Wear sandals or other footwear when off the mat.

ALWAYS wear shoes in the restroom.

Alert an instructor if there is blood on the mat so it can be properly sanitized.

Hit the showers as soon as possible. Lather! Rinse. Include your feet ;). Bonus tip, at the end of your shower, let the water run cold over your skin to close your pores.

Wash your training clothes promptly after every use.

Wash your braces and joint supports.

Do not leave sweaty clothing in your gym bag or your car.

Dry and sanitize your equipment. Gym bags, mouth guards, shin guards, ear guards, gloves etc.

Inspect yourself for skin irritations and infections. If you suspect you may have an infection, notify Harts and seek medical attention.

PLEASE, DO NOT LEAVE YOUR GEAR AT THE ACADEMY!

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 🙂

Promotion Day Information and Tips on How to Prepare

Promotion Day Information and Tips on How to Prepare

Congratulations to those being promoted on May 14th!

Here’s what you need to know about promotion day.

All Adult classes are cancelled on May 14, 2016.

Kids class will be held at regular time.

Warm up starts promptly at 11:30.

If you’re hammer or the nail, get in for a solid warm up. As you know, it will be a long training day.

Drink adequate amounts of water in the 72 hours leading up to Saturday!

By adequate we mean, no less that a half gallon or gallon of water per day. When you wake up on Saturday, pound a couple pints of water to prepare.

Cultivate energy in the coming week.

We encourage you to keep moving but there is little to no reason to train hard and much less risk injury. Drilling is welcome, work on details, know your game. Eat nutrient rich foods including carbs. Get 8 hours of sleep as many nights as you can.

Attn: Students and Parents,

Please pay for what you take from the fridge at Harts,

encourage siblings to share and maybe this will cut down

on the amount of floaters we have after class.

Thank you
