About this event:

Jiu Jitsu for a Lifetime, or: How to Endure.

Are you a dedicated Brazilian jiu jitsu player or other martial artist? Do you intend to train in your sport for decades and through life's milestones? Steve has a lot to share on this topic.

In this seminar, Steve will present the movements, exercises, drills, and mental techniques he credits with keeping him in the grappling game for over a half-century.

  • Learn why jiu jitsu training on its own is not enough for superior physical fitness, and which supplemental measures every grappler and fighter should include in order to remain youthful, vigorous, and pain-free.
  • How the fighting arts -- especially the jiu jitsu "guard -- compromise the posture and what to do to correct
  • Learn Steve's singular shoulder complex that will keep your shoulders strong, mobile, and pain-free -- especially good for rounded shoulders, or internally-rotated arms
  • How and why over-gripping is harmful to the wrists and elbows -- plus a terrific exercise to overcome the effects of excessive grippping
  • The importance of foot and ankle integrity, strength, and mobility -- and what this has everything to do with preventing knee injuries
  • Why most jiu jitsu players suffer from gluteal amnesia -- and how to correct this
  • The major source of back and knee problems -- and how to improve your situation
  • Why most jiu jitsu players have poor abdominal muscle control, relying on hyperactive hip flexors to get the job done
  • Experience Steve's deep abdominal-activating drills to keep you out of pain and injury and in glowing spinal health
  • The importance of neck and spinal mobility -- and its direct relationship to youthfulness, mental and physical health, and injury prevention

Reviews

Andrew Nerlich here, the 60-year old that came to some of your BJJ classes and your Jiu Jitsu for life seminar in Sydney. I thought you might like to hear an old man Jiu Jitsu story - I entered Black Belt Master 6 at the Sydney IBJJF Open and yesterday fought a 56 year old. He beat me on points but I was super stoked I went the distance.

Your dogpile drill really helped me stay calm on the bottom and successfully fend off multiple choke attempts. I'm doing my mobility exercises every day and after tapering for the comp is now over, intend to add one day a week of bodyweight strength training, following your seminar advice and your Bodyweight Basics video, to my four BJJ sessions.

Thanks Steve, and happy trails.

Steve & The Team,

Just wanted to give you some feedback on the seminar.

I enjoyed it but only now am I starting to realise it could be life-changing.

I realised I've been overtraining, doing heavy lifting 3 times a week and BJJ twice a week. I've replaced my weight training with isometrics, stretching and loosening up exercises and already I feel better.

Above all the thing which has helped me though was what Steve showed us about shaking our bodies... I've actually been doing this for years because it felt good, but not as much as I could have as I had never seen or heard of anyone else doing it...

Knowing that there is also some science around it and seeing everyone do it at the seminar has encouraged me to do this on a daily basis without feeling quite so weird!

Steve is a great guy and I hope to see him again.

Thanks

About this event:

Learn Steve Maxwell's own body weight conditioning system!

  • Upper Body Pulling -- Pull-up, Chin-up, and Row
  • Pushing -- Push-up and Dip
  • Introduction to timed static contraction (TSC)
  • Lower back and abdominals

  • Lower body -- Gluteals, hamstrings, hips, and thighs, calves, ankles, and feet
  • Q & A

LEARN why and how your body weight is the only strength modality you'll ever need.

DIFFERENTIATE between the demonstration of strength and building genuine strength -- there's a BIG difference.

HOW body weight exercise is correctly applied to improve performance in other sports and activities.

WHY chasing arbitrary repetition counts in excercises is a dead-end prospect and can cause harm

STOP comparing your current performance to anyone else -- or even your own past performance

DISCOVER the authentic purpose of BW excercise -- yea, verily, of all exercise

UNDERSTAND why time under load (TOL) is the primary stimulus for increasing muscular size

GRASP the timed static contraction (TSC) system so that even without any equipment whatsoever, you'll never lack the ability to train yourself (and others)

DISCOVER why gymnastic feats and stunts are substandard training, even harmful to the joints and general well-being

TAKE TO HEART Steve's message that rational physical training is never a source of injury but promotes physical health and joint integrity

EMPLOY a simple metronome to increase workout efficiency by 150%

REALIZE the ability to train resides not in equipment or circumstance, but within you. Its source is your own internal fire which cannot be purchased off the Internet, or anywhere else, only galvanized.

CONSTRUE how using various ranges of motion can make your exercises more productive

TAP into the survival mechanism to improve workout results

EXPERIENCE how simpler, general exercises yield greater benefit than more complex, specific drills

Upon completing this seminar you will have what you need to use your body weight for a superb workout anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

You will understand how to safely apply load to the joints in a way that prevents injuries -- even in non-related sports.
