The doors to Method BJJ are open to the public again! After 6 weeks of testing and practicing our new safety protocols with a small group of returning members, I'm ready to expand our classes again. I'm feeling really good about what I've got in place, including; -safely distanced changing areas -separate entrances and exits … Continue reading Open (with great care and responsibility) for business!
Hi Method family! Just a quick message to let you know where we're at in terms of being ready to re-open and get back on the mats! We don't have an opening date decided on as yet. I'm taking my time to make sure that I don't rush us back on to the mats … Continue reading Method re-opening plans
My Dear Method Family, I’m sure you’ve been expecting this announcement, so here it is. In the wake of this madness we’re in right now, Method will be shutting down classes for the remainder of the month. I’ll be re-assessing as the time goes by to figure out how to best progress and if the … Continue reading Closure
Hiya, folks! One of the most important things to me as a teacher is always seeking newopportunities to facilitate the integration of Method’s curriculum into students games Something new that I’ve been working on is taping all of the curriculum and posting them on the Method BJJ Facebook page (hit that like button so … Continue reading Curriculum Videos
****This is a re-post of a blog i wrote over 4 years ago, for my old blog at Dig Deep Brazilan Jiu Jitsu, but it's about a samurai rabbit, so how could it NOT be relevant? Now to be fair, I haven't had my black belt for long, so I'm certainly not saying that … Continue reading Usagi Yojimbo and the BJJ Black Belt
I don't usually shoot Bjj techs longer than my #tensectechs for my Instagram but this was a cool opportunity. Might lead to more of these types of vids from me.. So here's some rdlr/shin fun with a choke from the single under pass that magically appears from the Because Jitsu weekly game hack
Ok to be fair this quote doesn't give enough credit to the ingenuity and creativity of dancers and dance choreographers, BUT i've felt much the same about Jiu Jitsu for a while. Like either my writing on jiu jitsu needs to be a completely dry anatomical, bio mechanical, scientific breakdown of how to use leverage, … Continue reading Writing About Music is Like Dancing About Architecture, OR, Style Is Not a Tabletop Flower
I'll see you on the mats!

So classes as usual tomorrow and Wednesday, then we'll be closed until our first class back on January 5. Stay tuned for some open mat events happening … Continue reading Holiday schedule
Classes will running as usual tonight. A big thank you to my Grandpa who was a tail gunner in a Lancaster in WW2, and all of the veterans who have fought and sacrificed for our country.
We're a little more Method every day!
Part 3 of the Ten Sec Techs series brings us...Shin to Shin! I started playing with this after watching a lot of womens black belt matches at the worlds one year, and the non-stop aggressive attacks from Michelle NIcolini. She uses primarily a spider/shin hybrid to great effect, sweeping and submitting with high percentages. I … Continue reading 4 Shin Hybrid Guard Attacks: Ten Sec Techs Part 3
OK! Part 2 of my Ten Sec Tech Instagram technique gathering blog posts. This time around we'll be focussing on a little doozy that my BJJ buddy and training partner, Curt Malin found working off of a turtle sweep. So of course after discovery we tried to figure out how many things we could do … Continue reading 4 Inverting Back Escapes and Attack Transitions: Ten Sec Techs part 2
My black belt buddy Curtle the turtle had been teaching Method students his brand of deceptively dangerous Jiu Jitsu, the turtle guard! I love/hate this guard so much. Without having to develop my back attacks against Curt's constantly threatening turtle game, my Jiu Jitsu would be no where near where it is now. Happy to … Continue reading Curtle the turtle!
things are changing!!
Over the next little while I'll be grouping some of my Instagram video techniques (#tensectechs) into blog posts. My intent with these was to inspire creativity and hopefully spark a back and forth with other practitioners, and mainly...to be brief. If it wasn't something that someone was interested in fitting into their game, they didn't … Continue reading 7 Reverse Triangles: The Ten Sec Techs
