The system that we have developed around training the grappling athlete comes from my own experiences in grappling myself. I have been doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2008 and currently hold a Brown Belt in both BJJ and Judo. I also compete extensively on the Sydney scene in IBJJF, Grappling Industries and NSW Judo competitions throughout the year. For me competing is always a great way to judge how you are progressing and what you need to improve on. As I mentioned before it became apparent to me that there needed to be a system around this.
From my own research around best methods from developing professional athletes we have focused on 5 main pillars to help develop a grappling athlete:
- Technical/Tactical – we can develop specific programs around developing the skills you need in your grappling which cover drilling, specific drilling and implementation in sparring and competition.
- Physical Preparation – a strength and conditioning program that covers everything you need for complete physical preparation -strength, conditioning, mobility and recovery.
- Psycho-Behavioral (Sports Psychology)-learn how to develop specific skills around goal setting, visualization , motivation and handling the stress of competing.
- Lifestyle/Nutrition-we give you the skills and knowledge around fueling your performance, weight management and having the best lifestyle to perform.
- Fundamental Movement Skills-a athlete who can move well is less likely to be injured and is more likely to perform better.
As you can see we have put some definite though in providing you the most professional and complete grappling athlete training in Sutherland. We are athletes ourselves and set out to develop a program that we knew would help a grappling athlete reach their potential over the long-term.
