Losing Weight & Feeling Great with BJJ

Women vs man in Jiu Jitsu CompetitionYou can take this one to the bank because if you are participating in a regular Indianapolis BJJ Class you will lose flab while feeling spectacular! How? Well, you will be increasing your calorie expenditure and this is what has to happen if fat is going to be zapped. By getting your heart pumping in a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class, you will force your body to dip into fat stores for energy and in doing so your scale numbers will drop.

Jiu Jitsu: The Ultimate Self Defense Training
indianapolis Jiu-Jitsu women self-defenseWith the rising crime rates in some areas, sales of things like tasers and pepper spray have increased. But, if they are not used correctly could actually become a weapon used against you. It is even worse when you think of guns as your self-defense. And, while it may make you feel safe to own one, do you really think that you could pull the trigger when the need arises? A lot of people may find that they cannot. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the ultimate self defense training for a number of reasons and much safer to use than a weapon that might be taken from you.

Below are some of the top videos from Marcello's Jiu Jitsu Youtube page. Enjoy!


My first Training with my Indianapolis Jiu Jitsu Instructor

indianapolis-Jiu-Jitsu-Academy-training-classAt his home Indianapolis Jiu Jitsu academy, the BJJ Coach Marcello Monteiro refers to “training” as the period of time after warm-ups, instruction, and practice drills where participants line up against the wall and are paired off for a little friendly sparring. Often times, Professor Marcello walks around and observes during this period, keeping time and giving pointers while focusing on everyone’s safety and correct execution of techniques. Sometimes, especially during the training session of the second (or more advanced) class, Marcello will do a little training himself with higher ranked belts. It is always a sight to observe, as the moves between combatants are so controlled, so technical and meticulous, that we beginners and intermediates always get good take-aways from observing the matches. I have done drills with Marcello and he has given me instruction, but I had never rolled with him before last night. It was an experience.


Indianapolis BJJ Team is growing!

I am super excited about the potencial of all the students involved in our programs... The mats are always full, the Muay Thai/ Kickboxing classes have been growing a lot as well and  the environment at the academy is full of energy !

Congratulations to each of you (men, women and kids)  on your accomplishments and to all of the recently promoted students at our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in Indianapolis!
