1-YEAR-LONG BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU CAMP ABROAD
- Date Listed17/10/2021
I'm looking for dedicated training partners to train Brazilian jiu-jitsu with.
Thugs/bullies need not apply!
I'm looking for emotionally stable people with high moral standards who are genuinely friendly, empathetic and compassionate.
I want to create a safe, ego-free, peaceful and relaxed training environment where everybody understands that they are there to help each other progress rather than compete against each other.
Once I've found the right training partners, we will then rent (inexpensively) a big house (or a commercial property) in Spain or Poland (we will consider other countries, but because the global masquerade is still going on and I don't feel like conforming to it, our options are severely limited at the moment) and convert the living/biggest room into a dojo (by simply putting down mats on the floor) so our house/property will essentially become a training camp. And while normally sharing accommodation with random strangers is something that I prefer to stay away from, sharing a house with like-minded people is a completely different ball game. Training in this kind of environment will not only allow us to train more efficiently (no time wasted on commuting, no turning up late) but also build great camaraderie. Of course the most beneficial aspect of sharing accommodation will be being able to significantly cut down costs which is critical considering that we will be making no money during the entire project and will have to rely on our savings. If you're lucky enough to be able to work remotely during this project, that's fantastic. However, it is of utmost importance that you understand that your job should not interfere with your BJJ training. Our BJJ project should always be your priority and your job must not affect your performance during the project. So ideally you should not work at all throughout the project and only concentrate on your BJJ training but if you believe that your job is flexible enough to combine it with the project, then happy days! :)
Living and training in our house will kind of resemble The Ultimate Fighter, except:
- It will be a BJJ (not MMA) camp
- We will be total beginners (If you're not a beginner, you're still welcome to train with us as long as you have no problem starting from total scratch with us and promise to keep your ego at bay. You will be expected to follow the curriculum like everybody else in the group. I, for example, have done BJJ before but consider it useless for the most part and want to start over from scratch and finally do it right and placing this ad is the first step towards it)
- The project will last for one year
- We will have no live coach/teacher (our main source of instruction will be a high-quality online course taught by extremely skilled and talented BJJ instructors)
The lessons in the course are taught in a linear fashion which will allow us to progress significantly faster compared to training a regular brick-and-mortar BJJ gym where techniques typically tend to be presented randomly with no structure/specific order which can be confusing/frustrating/discouraging to beginning students. Plus, most BJJ academies these days are sport-oriented whereas our course will focus predominantly on self defence which is what BJJ was originally intended for by its creators. The great thing is that learning this style of BJJ will give you a fantastic foundation for MMA, if that's your eventual goal (it's mine).
