    How Many Kids Is TOO Many?

    How many kids is too many kids? Creating, an appropriate class roster for Jiu-Jitsu isn’t the easiest thing you’ll undertake. Too few kids……and you won’t have similar body types, or age groups. Too many kids and you run out of mat space. There’s also a “perceived” issue of classroom management. In a traditional classroom setting, Michigan requires anywhere from 12:1 - 25:1 student:teacher ratio depending on the age. Jiu-Jitsu is a VERY close contact sport and requires more coaches than say soccer, football, or gymnastics. Therefore Metro Jiu-Jitsu’s policy is NEVER to exceed a 10:1 ....

  • What is the ROI Of Jiu-Jitsu?

    What is the ROI Of Jiu-Jitsu?

    Brazilian jiu-jitsu is known as one of the most intense and disciplined martial art forms in the world. Though it may seem like a tough and rigorous sport to take up, it actually holds a lot of benefits, both physically and mentally. The most surprising of these benefits is how it can make you more money! 💰 Firstly, Brazilian jujitsu teaches you discipline. In order to truly succeed in the sport, you must be disciplined in both your training and your diet. This kind of self-control can be immensely helpful in all areas of life, including financial planning.

  • How Long Do I Have To Train Jiu-Jitsu Before I Can Beat Up Anyone?

    How Long Do I Have To Train Jiu-Jitsu Before I Can Beat Up Anyone?

    Yes…..we have gotten this question. 😂 This is the entirely wrong motive for learning Jiu-Jitsu. But we will entertain it. In short, no human who is invincible. There is always a bigger fish. 🐠 Which is why we teach respect and situational awareness before any fight can occur; and preach that 99% of fights can be avoided by walking away. Now, PRACTICALLY speaking….after 5-6 years of training Jiu-Jitsu it’s highly likely you could defend yourself against 99% of untrained assailants. Don’t believe us? Heres and example of a female purple belt laying the SMACK DOWN on some bodybuilder who was feeling himself. 😆 Professor Mohammad & Coach David ....

  • There Are So Many Jiu-Jitsu Academies!  How Do I Choose The Right One?

    There Are So Many Jiu-Jitsu Academies! How Do I Choose The Right One?

    This! This right here! This is the million dollar question. Selecting a Jiu-Jitsu academy is not like picking out a pair of sneakers. 👟 It is entirely dependent upon what is important to YOU and what YOU value as a student. Now we can go into a huge sales pitch about why we are the best. But to be honest that would be a fruitless exercise. 🤷‍♂️ Because the “best” is relative based on what YOU need, want and don’t want. For instance, we could talk to you about how Metro Jiu-Jitsu offers cleanest Academy in the state (with nightly mat scrubbing, ozone machines, cleaning disinfecting. and deep cleaning 2x/month.) But that wouldn’t matter if cleanliness ....

  • But I Like Working Out!  How Can I Supplement My Jiu-Jitsu With The Gym?

    But I Like Working Out! How Can I Supplement My Jiu-Jitsu With The Gym?

    Just because strength does not but Jiu-Jitsu does not mean that you have (or should) stop working out all together. In fact a lot of our members still lift 2 to 3 times a week to supplement their Jiu-Jitsu! 💪 These exercises can be bodyweight workouts, plyometrics, yoga, high rep/low weight, high intensity training (HIT), and many more. The point is you want to lift so that you feel strong; and avoid lifting so that you are stiff/sore and don’t wanna go to class. Ex: 👇 Bonus! All of our members get FAT discounts at the GNC right inside the Southgate shopping center! They regularly use these discounts to boost their workouts with incredible vitamins and ....

  • "Jiu-Jitsu Looks REALLY Intense....And I Don't Wanna Be A UFC Fighter!  Is It Still For Me?"

    "Jiu-Jitsu Looks REALLY Intense....And I Don't Wanna Be A UFC Fighter! Is It Still For Me?"

    I have absolutely zero desire to fight in the UFC. It takes a special type of person to want to punch someone in the face repeatedly. 🤕 Not saying it’s wrong necessarily. It's just a special type of culture. Not what you will find at Metro Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu is routinely confused with UFC and cage fighting. 🤦‍♂️ And while Jiu-Jitsu is used in both….pure Jiu-Jitsu can be practiced at all ages with very minimal injury. I read an article a while back that mainstream sports like soccer ⚽️ and football 🏈 have an exponentially higher injury rate (by about seven or eight fold) compared to Jiu-Jitsu. 😯 Not to mention...most people's favorite part about the ....

    How To Improve Your Jiu-Jitsu At Home

    I love this question. Mainly because it shows commitment to the art as well as coach-ability to do whatever is necessary to improve. 😊 There are a few key activities that will most certainly help your performance on the mat. 1. Your diet. Firas Zahabi ( Georges St-Pierre‘s trainer.) Once asked do you want your body to run like a tow truck or like a Ferrari? If you want to run like a Ferrari then feed it like one (Paraphrase) No matter how much skill you have if you just killed a chipotle burrito one hour before class you will have a miserable experience. 🤢 2. Stretching. Taking the time to stretch your body and keep your hips knees and shoulders loose will pay off ....
