What you need to know!

       Our ranking system for youth belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is as follows: white (all ages), grey (<7), yellow (7+), orange (10+) and green (13+).  A green belt is the highest rank possible for a youth martial arts under the age of 16 in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  When a green belt turns 16, he/she is awarded his/her blue belt.  Youth belts, like adult belts, earn degrees.  Each belt has the potential to earn up to 4 degrees.
       Students, I know you may have some questions about what to expect on the 21st.  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 while making them tired.  Why? Because when a student is tired he/she can no longer use strength to overpower an opponent, but rather has to use technique.
       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 21st.  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 Jiu Jitsu.  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 21st.  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

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
