Pan Ams 2012 – Global Jiu Jitsu Academy / GFTeam   Leave a comment

The Pan Ams 2012 was bigger than ever at the Bren Center in Irvine California.  Over 3,500 competitors and 1,000’s of spectators over the course of four days.  I love the Pan Ams because I get to see all my jiu jitsu friends Ive made through the years and rub elbows with legends and talented up and comers.e

Here is a pic with Dana Riddle, Andrew Goodman, Rich Zaydel(me) and Pistol Pete Loncarevich.

Easy Kimura by Rich Zaydel – Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Basics – RocknRollBJJ & Fitness   Leave a comment

I like to keep things as simple as possible.  As I have said in many of my posts, I am nothing special, just an average guy who loves jiu jitsu.  I love it so much that even though I am not as athletic as many of my training partners, I will put in the extra work to try to keep up.  Through trial and error over the years, I have found moves that work well for me and I found better ways to break down the move so its understandable to the average Joe like myself.  I hope they make your life easier and jiu jitsu more fun for you!

Here is a very jiu ijtsu 101 move, the kimura.  I also added an option of a sweep when your opponent defends the position by grabbing his belt.  If you would like to see something specific, please let me know through facebook at Rich Zaydel.

ROCKnROLL BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU & FITNESS ORANGE COUNTY CALIFORNIA!   1 comment

So back when I first started jiu jitsu, there was never any music in the dojos while we trained.  But, nowadays, most places I train have music playing in the background.   Trouble is I have no control over what is being played.

As most of you know and for those reading who don’t know our sports jargon, when we spar in brazilian jiu jitsu, we call it ‘rolling’. 

Hence the name RocknRoll BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) & Fitness!  Sometimes I shorten it to RNR BJJ & Fitness.  The idea is when you come train jiu jtsu at RocknRoll BJJ you get cutting edge technique and insruction, as well as, your choice of music for your workout! 

I love training jiu jitsu.  It the best to crank the music and do a fast flow roll for as long as possible.  Rock n Roll!

Come train with me anytime!

Im also a personal trainer and have a great RocknRoll Jiu Jitsu based fitness program!  Lose weight fast!  Super fun!
