Grand Rapids Brazilian Jiu-jitsu
Yesterday was the first day I got to work with the Grand Rapids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club. I am going to be helping out with some of their conditioning. Which is basically some of the most demanding conditioning you can ask your body to go through. High Intensity Anaerobic work in a Aerobic environment. Take your body close to redline, back off, repeat. They have some fighters getting ready for a May 1st fight at the Delta Plex here in Grand Rapids, MI.
I was impressed with the guys conditioning already, and there willingness to put out. Dig deep and keep going. I think it will be a lot of fun helping these guys get into even better fighting shape. If your ever interested they have a brand new gym located on the corner of 32nd and Jefferson. It's really a great looking gym. It's run by Clint Crabtree, a blackbelt in BJJ. Which if you know about the sport, speaks for itself.
