February Catch-Up Part 1

Whilst I love writing articles for my readers sometimes other people say things just a little bit better than me! Or at least are better placed to say them! So here’s my round-up of the blog, stories and articles you might have missed of the last couple of weeks or I just think you might find useful!

How Leaders Should Lead – Princeton BJJ – A great little article regarding leaders and leadership style within BJJ.

Find Your Focus with Jiu Jitsu – GD Jiu Jitsu Academy – Whilst most of my readers probably know this its still nice to read another article and perspective on how BJJ can help you focus especially after a hectic day at work!

Training with Anxiety (part 2) – Jiu Jolie –  A follow up to Jolie’s previous article about her battles with anxiety and its relationship with BJJ

Jose Padilha to Helm BJJ Film For Netflix – Dark Horizons – Unless you have been off social media for the last week or so you have probably spotted the articles about a BJJ origin story on Netflixs.

Are “healthy” snacks actually good for you? – Vox.com – BJJ peeps love the latest food craze especially snacks that we can have on the go or simply that we can have at work without getting strange looks from co-workers. This article examines some of the latest options.

Technical Takeaway
It no secret that I use this blog to support and promote women’s BJJ so this week a technical takeaway from one of my favourite female grapplers Shanti Abelha. If you have no idea who she is then I suggest you check out her profile on BJJ Heroes or her club Hive BJJ in Denmark.
