The Jiu-Jitsu Survival Guide for Beginning Students
So, you're a new student to a traditional Gracie or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school and you don't quite know how the system works. You might be grappling and are getting totally rolled up by your fellow students. You might even have become injured already and frazzled because you don't know what to expect. Your spouse might even want you to quit already. It's a dog eat dog world at some schools where the strong survive and the weak leave. Let third-degree black belt Professor Keith Owen guide you through the mental, physical, emotional and yes, even political aspects of years of training in Jiu-Jitsu on how to stay a student, advance up the belt ranks, and most importantly not get injured at your new endeavor.
