      Tips for Staying Guilt-Free During the Holidays

      Tips for Staying Guilt-Free During the Holidays

      The holiday season is upon us. And with it comes paid vacation days, way too much delicious food, and fewer available days for training… because, hey, your coaches need to enjoy their own holidays, too.

      If you’ve been training long enough, you’ve likely already experienced some serious FOMO (“fear of missing out” for you old fogies) any time you have to take a day or two off training.

      Last Minute BJJ Halloween Ideas

      Halloween is little more than two weeks away. And like any self-respecting procrastinator, you’ve left your Halloween costume idea for the last minute.

      You have a few options now (as you well know). One, you can rush over to your nearest pop-up Halloween store and rifle through the last remaining dregs of costumes, from an leftover assortment that nobody wanted in the first place. Odds are high that you’ll end up with a very unsatisfactory costume. Two, you can scour the internet – probably Amazon – for a ready-made idea and hope that it 1) arrives on time, 2) fits, and 3) if it doesn’t fit, that you can return it with enough time to order one that does. Ugh. What a hassle.

      BJJ Gi Washing Tips

      You don’t use your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi like you do normal clothing. So you shouldn’t be washing it like you would your average, everyday attire.

      Your jiu-jitsu gi gets used and abused. Eventually, no matter how clean you try to get it, it’ll start getting that “funk” smell after the first roll.

      Ew. Yeah, I know. The bad news is that you’ll never be able to completely avoid it. Unless you just don’t wear your gi, but we both know that’s not going to happen. The good news, however, is that there are ways you can delay that process, and thereby prolong the life of your jiu-jitsu gi.

      Here are a few BJJ gi washing tips to help you out...
