my adventure into the weird and wonderful world of brazilian jiujitsu
Thursday, 29 January 2009
The purpose of this blog is to primarily keep track of new BJJ moves and tactics I come across in my training. I will also talk about goings on in my life and general things that I want to mention and talk about. Right now I am in my third year of university in the UK at Brighton. Most of my family live in the middle east and Italy so I tend to travel quite alot and my training takes place under several different schools. So why set up a blog? When I started training, I was happy to learn the moves and try not to get submitted too often. Now that my game has progressed and I am thinking more about my game plan, I find myself easily forgetting moves. Good moves! Moves that I like and work for me! So I'm going to be writing about moves that fit my developing style and any other training ramblings that are going on. It will be very nice to keep this going for a while and be able to look back at my progress! Right now I'v been training BJJ for around 6 months, with a couple extra months prior to that in a bit of grappling and no gi. My current schools are Reza's martial art center in Bahrain and BTT Europe in the UK.
Hey all my name is Alex Broers and I currently train out of two schools; in the UK I train with BTT under head coach Ze Marcello, while in Bahrain I train at Reza's Martial Arts Academy under Reza Monfaradi, where I started in August 2008. I just finished my degree in Business Management and Marketing at the University of Brighton, but am more interested in my training in Brazilian Jiujitsu :)
