  • Burdette BJJ Blog - Week 5

    The Blue Belt Stripe 1 – Do not quit! “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” Galatians 6:9 . The blue belt in BJJ represents your first milestone; it’s your first promotion! When you don that new color around your waist, not only do you feel invincible, but you feel qualified to give every white belt instructions while rolling (slight dig at blue belts, but we’ve all been there  ). I remember getting my blue belt; I had the confidence to roll with anyone and everyone regardless of belt color or physical stature. It is truly a great feeling of ....

    Stripe 4 – Be Teachable “Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. Are you planning a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.” St. Augustine Regardless of how long you’ve been training Jiu Jitsu, there are always new things to learn. It’s amazing how quickly the Jiu Jitsu game changes; it truly is ever evolving. Just look at the evolution of guard play over the past few years: worm guard, squid guard, mantis guard, donkey guard…all the animal guards! I can’t say I subscribe to all of these, but there are plenty of new techniques that are applicable to your game, and it would be foolish to ....

    Stripe 3 – Learn to tap “There is no losing in jiu jitsu. You either win or you learn.” Carlos Gracie, Sr The most important move you learn as a white belt is the tap. It can be a tap of the hand, the foot, or even a verbal tap – “TAP!!!” We’ve all been there starting out. The crazy thing about it, however, is that most white belts don’t tap or don’t want to tap. I’ve been that guy…and I have lasting aches and pain from those regrettable decisions. What many white belts don’t understand is that tapping is not a sign of weakness, as most think; rather tapping is the key to learning and ....

    Stripe 2 – You are not alone “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth.” John 14:16-17 Train for any amount of time and you’ll notice very quickly how familial the Jiu Jitsu community is. There’s a very interesting juxtaposition about BJJ where physicality and aggression meet connection and relationship. One minute you’re choking your partner out, and the next your smiling, laughing and hugging it out. I tend to believe that as men these are two primal traits that God put in us that meet up on the mats. One is aggression; we’re meant to fight, ....

    White Belt Stripe 1 - Show up consistently! A black belt is a white belt who never stopped training – Renzo Gracie Dwayne Johnson is quoted as saying “Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” The longer you live, the more you will come to agree with this statement, unless you never completed anything in your life. If that’s you, then Jiu Jitsu is probably not for you. The Jiu Jitsu journey is definitely a marathon, and for each player it will be a different journey with a different timeline, but I can say with a 100% guarantee that if you ever want to become a black ....
