What up Flowrollers, it’s a great day to learn your first take down... nah who are we kidding, just keep pulling guard.
Interesting feedback on Tuesday’s “is being late OK” poll…
I like Andrew’s take here:
Being late to literally every class, especially if you’re skipping the technique portion, feels rude to your instructor. But here and there? No need to get the ol jimmies rustled 😆
Alright let’s get to it, slap-and-bump 👊🏻
THE MAIN EVENT 🚨
There was some interesting discussion on Reddit yesterday about taking time off from Jiu Jitsu.
Personally I feel like it’s a mixed bag. If I’m injured and taking time off - but still thinking about Jiu Jitsu 24/7 - I come back feeling pretty solid.
If I’m being a lazy POS though, I get back to the mats 10 pounds heavier with horribly sloppy technique.
At the end of the day, I think the important thing is what you do with your time off. What do you think?
Taking time off of Jiu Jitsu makes my game...

Do you have too many rash guards? Trick question, not possible. If you train much No-Gi, Gold BJJ’s Foundation Rash Guard has to be part of your lineup.
This rash guard is available in short and long sleeve, in all belt rank colors, and is fully IBJJF legal. The new red is my favorite:

DEAL OF THE DAY 💰
I just found a super steep (52% off!) discount code for BJJ Fanatics that is working today: PATRICKXX52. This one won’t last long.
Use it to pick up the “Rody Lock” system for just $46.56. This instructional is awesome, I actually used one of the body lock passes from it in training this morning.
