No Limit Thursday

#MCM #TransformationTuesday #WonderWomanWednesday #FBF
There is a new social media craze happening, and it’s taking over Thursday. #NoLimitThursday #NoLimitTakeover is where YOU take a picture of yourself in our No Limit gear and TAG US and SHARE it with your friends. You will be seeing a ton of faces; some you may see on a regular basis at your home gym, and some you may never have seen before who train at another affiliate. This will be a great way to come together and take over social media to show the public just who No Limit is!

4/25: Seminars & Weddings

This past Saturday, April 25th, 2015 was a great one in the books! We hosted our Professor Jarrett Becks for a seminar. He went over some details from side control transitioning to north south, while showing some submission options: kimura, bread cutter choke, and bicep slicer to armbar. Afterwards, everyone got some great rolls in. Coach Jae McIntosh and Jessica Dobbs were both awarded a stripe on their purple belts.

New Women’s BJJ class at HQ

No Limit Ladies taking over!!

nolimitbjj

We have women from all of our No Limit locations that are impressive. They can definitely hold their own in matches. In our area, we have seen ladies come into class and are skeptical or hesitant about getting on the ground and rolling with men. We now have an all ladies class in the area, where any female can come in for one night a week and not have to worry about feeling uncomfortable.

Starting on May 6th, 2015, we will offer a women’s only Jiu-Jitsu and self defense class taught by Andriel Love. Andriel Love is an aggressive competitor that has placed on the state and national levels of BJJ competition. She is a blue belt under Professor Jarrett Becks and has just recently moved back to her hometown of Madison, MS. Classes will be on Wednesday nights at 7pm. Let’s get the word out, so that we can…

“The Voice and The Choice”

-The Voice and The Choice-

He’s 11, only a pre-teen. He sits in his room holding his baseball glove pondering. Thinking. Deciding. He’d played since tee ball and had so many fond memories. Wins, losses, successes, and of course great friends. All tucked away neatly in the recesses of his mind. But as he looks at that group of knitted leather, somethings different. Wrong. It’s not as fun as it once was. It’s hard. Tough. “Impossible” The Voice tells him. He begins to wonder if it’s even worth the trouble to continue. “No” The Voice cries. And so he comes to The Choice. Fight on or Move on. So the boy drops the glove on the floor, and moves on……

He’s 17. A teenager. A high school student with everything going his way. He’s a football player now. Played since Junior High. He loves football with a passion. He sits in the locker room holding his helmet, thinking of those good times. Good teams, bad teams, getting to the State Championship just last year and losing to a good opponent. But as he grips that round molded hard plastic, somethings different, wrong. It’s not as fun as it once was. It’s tough. Hard. “Impossible” The Voice tells him. He wonders, again, if its all even worth his time. His “hard earned” time and energy. “No” The Voice cries. And once again, he comes to The Choice. Fight or move on. So that teenager hangs up his maroon and white helmet, and moves on……

He’s 22, an adult. A college graduate. And now a bowler. Who’d a thought. He loves it. knows it backwards and forwards. Even does some coaching. He’s sitting in his car, looking at his bowling balls. The memories come flooding back. State Championships. League Victories. Hard fought tournaments. All lovely and divine. But as he holds that round mass of Resin, something feels different. Wrong. “Impossible” The Voice says. Once again, he wonders if it’s worth his time to keep going. “No” The Voice cries. “It’s not.” As he thinks about all those amazing memories, he puts the ball in the bag, zips it up, and moves on………

He’s 24 now. He’s found a new hobby. A new avenue to satisfy his need for competition. A way to get in shape. And a place with amazing friends. Family. He hits the mats running, rolling, full speed. Immerses himself in every aspect of it. He even travels, only to watch. To support. He loves it. He has success. Wins, he can’t believe it. He has the most amazing family here. Always supportive. Always pushing. Always caring. But one night after a tough session. An old enemy shows up. He knows who it is. He’s use to him. “It’s not worth it” The Voice says. “You’ve had your fun, you’re fine now.” It’s brave now. Speaking stronger and louder than ever. It has no fear. Why should it. He’s been right before, why not now. So the man looks down at his cotton belt. Thinking. Wondering. Is it even worth it. “NO!!” The Voice screams. And again, like so many times, the man comes to The Choice. Fight or move on……..

He Chooses to Fight!!!!!!

NLKB: Little Rock & Orange Beach

This past weekend, April 18, we had two teams of No Limit competing in two different regions for two different types of BJJ tournaments.

Coach Jessica Dobbs, of Starkville, and Coach Hazel Capalad, of NLKB CAFB, competed at the American Grappling Federation’s Blue/Purple Qualifier Submission Only in Little Rock, AR. Hazel won her first match by armbar, then lost her other two matches in some hard fought battles. Jessica won her first match by wristlock, then lost her final match; however, she still secured a spot in the Invitational, May 16th, in Dallas, TX.

We at No Limit have decided to pick a student in our gym that works hard on and off of the mat. We had the instructors nominate a person who they thought were the best candidates for the spot. We had a lot of names mentioned, which is awesome, and it was tough to make the final decision. We finally made the decision to choose Billy Stricklin from our Starkville location.

When I asked for nominees, Jae McIntosh immediately sent in the nomination for Billy. He said that Billy was one of his most dedicated students and comes in to help with classes. I sent Billy a few questions and sort of did a “long distance” interview.

1) What is your full name? Billy Thomas Stricklin III (Trey)

2) What is your age? 27

3) What location do you train? Starkville

4) How long have you trained? Going on 3…
