4th Ladies Only Open Mat

4th LOOM

Two years ago in February, Jessica Dobbs, Assistant Instructor & Head Ladies’ Instructor at No Limit Jiu Jitsu in Starkville, planned the first Ladies’ Only Open Mat in Starkville, MS.  In an effort to bring women who train together, it was a great success considering how few women were training around the state only 2 years ago. Since then, it has become at least a once a year event growing each time.

This year on September 26th, 2015, she will be hosting the 4th Ladies Only Open Mat at New Summit School in Jackson, MS. This venue will provide tons of mat space, changing rooms, and A/C :). Again this year, we plan to have Hazel Capalad, from No Limit Killer Bees-Columbus Air Force Base, to lead us in Hot Hula Fitness to warm up. It was a great success last year learning the art of Polynesian dancing while getting a good sweat going before some jiu jitsu.

One of the major efforts of the Ladies Only Open Mats is to give the opportunity to show women who have never heard of jiu jitsu, or may be interested in jiu jitsu but are timid to get on the mats with guys, that women do train. The open mat is not just open rolling, but a few simple self defense and sport jiu jitsu techniques are shown to peak interest and also give those who train something to take back as well.

Another effort of the Ladies Only Open Mats is to give the opportunity for women who train, the opportunity to train with other women. Some ladies do not have other female training partners, and as much as we love our male teammates, sometimes it’s refreshing to have a little “girl time.”

So, tell your friends and anyone to show up to New Summit School, Saturday, September 26, 2015, at 2PM for the 4th Ladies Only Open Mat! It’s going to be awesome!

Name: Logan Butts
Age: 20
Occupation: Student
Length of Training: 4 years Judo, 2 years Jiujitsu

Tell us a little about how and why you started training martial arts? What made you stick with it? My Father taught me how to defend myself using gracie jiujitsu when i was 5-6 years old which led to my interest in judo at 9 years old. I really sucked at judo for a long time, but I rose to the challenge of competition with a little push from my sensei, and this feeling of facing my fears pushed me to continue to get better no matter how hard it was.

How has martial arts &/or No Limit influenced your life? Doing martial arts has completely changed my life! My no limit family inspires me to be the best person that I can be in everything that i do in my life.

You went to Worlds earlier this year, what was that experience like for you? Worlds was an awesome experience, it changed my perspective on jiujitsu. It showed me how incredibly talented and hard-working world champions truly are, and it showed me that they are also just people like you and me, and we can reach those heights if we put our mind to it.

Why do you compete? I like to tell myself that everything I do on the mats is for my future students.. when i compete, it forces me to train hard and become a better martial artist so that one day i can be the best teacher i can be, and hopefully teach as many people as possible how to defend themselves.

What are some of your short term and long term goals? Short term, I just want to get one percent better as a grappler and as a person each day. As for long term, I just want a successful gym of my own one day when I’m ready.

How do you balance work/school/training? Well its not too hard because I currently dont have a steady job, but on days that my school keeps me from the gym, I make sure to train extra hard on my own. (Yoga, plyometrics, BJJ solo drills)

What would you tell someone wanting to start Jiu Jitsu? I would say that we grapplers arent over exaggerating when we rant and rave about the benefits of Jiu jitsu, and you should start training TODAY!

Anything else you’d like to say. Shout outs to your coaches/sponsors. Yes, id like to thank all of my coaches from Jae and Jess in Starkville to Randall, Becks, and the whole crew in the jackson area- love you guys. Also of course shout out to my sponsor @breakpointfc follow them on IG and check out their awesome gear! Oss!

Tips for First Time Rollers

Tips for First Time Rollers

1. Just keep moving. If you get in a bad position, don’t settle. Bridge, Shrimp, until you get out to a neutral position or get a dominant position.

2. But don’t flail. Do be somewhat aware of your body. It can be difficult at first, but the more you drill & roll, the better you understand your body. You will recognize scramble positions and where to go from such chaotic positions the more you roll. And be aware of walls, concrete, & other people rolling.

3. If you have a question, take a mental note during the roll and ask later. You should be able to replay your roll after it ends. If you can’t, you are moving too fast. Asking questions during a roll can lead to 5 minute conversations. Ask afterwards.

4. Don’t second guess yourself. Just do it. If you end up in a bad spot, learn from it. Don’t be afraid to try something new you’ve never done before. You can always tap and reset.

5. Training is training. If you are rolling with a higher belt, don’t belittle yourself and think they aren’t getting anything out of it. Example: If you are getting armbarred repeatedly, they maybe working something, so next time don’t let them get the armbar.

6. Get to a position you are familiar with. Don’t wait for the other person. If you feel comfortable and know a submission in mount, then get to mount. If you have an aggressive guard game then play it.

7. Don’t come into a roll with the mindset of “I don’t know what I am doing.” You have been around enough now to know something or the instructors would not let you roll. Focus on what you do know. Positions you have seen before. Make little goals like I will get mount. I will work scissor sweep.

8. Roll with everyone. Guys & gals. Roll with the less experienced. Roll with the more experienced. You will learn something from each one.

9. Tap early, tap often. Lose the ego & don’t be stubborn about letting a submission go too far. You will only hurt yourself.

10. Lose the ego. Don’t hurt your training partner. Let go when they tap. You do not get a gold medal for tapping out your teammate. We are all here to learn.

11. Roll.

2015 IBJJF Atlanta Summer Open

This past weekend No Limit Killer Bees took five competitors to Atlanta for the IBJJF Atlanta Summer Open Gi & NoGi at the Georgia International Convention Center.

It was a great two days competing! Starkville brought home 2 golds and 2 bronzes. Congrats to all who competed!

Competing is an emotional rollercoaster with so many ups and downs. I have always said that no one said it will be easy, but it will be worth it. I grow every time I compete and every time my students compete. To me, testing yourself on the mats makes you check who you really are. Are you a quitter? Are you an excuses person? A blame person? A perseverance person? Or are you a whatever it takes person? I honestly believe we are all of the above at some point in our lives and it is the journeys and the ups and downs that help us overcome or master all of the above. I am always proud of all my students that compete, win or lose. Winning is awesome, but do not forget the journey!” -Ray Casias, Tennessee Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy
