First day of the IBJJF Atlanta Summer International Open

First day of the IBJJF Atlanta Summer International Open

The first day of the IBJJF Atlanta Summer International Open is going great. Congrats to Professor George Wehby for taking second today on the black belt division! It was great to see him come back so strong to competition. His dedication to Jiu Jitsu and putting his skills to test in a high-level tournament is very motivating and inspiring to all of us at Team Passos.

Tomorrow we have a few of our other teammates will be competing.

Start Your Roll Faster

“When I shake hands, I can’t wait for my partner to start the match. I can’t zombie walk…like a mummy. I just have to go…

The first 10, 15, 20 seconds are very important for the match because it is going to tell you if you are in a good position or not. You need to start out faster sooner and be in a good position sooner. Being low energy is not going to work. You have to be high energy. Rolling in intervals allow you to push harder during the match. Start fast.”
