  • Kids Martial Arts in San Antonio - Ohana Academy - Rectitude

    Rectitude

    Rectitude
    This week’s powerful word of the week is, Rectitude. Rectitude has three main definitions: 1. the quality or state of being straight 2. moral integrity; righteousness 3. the quality or state of being correct in judgment or procedure Rectitude is a word that is not commonly used in our everyday discourse. In fact I don’t think I have ever heard it used. The question is how do we take the word rectitude and then apply it on the mat? There are two main ways that i feel the word rectitude can apply on and off the mat. No one can truly roll live with unimpeachable rectitude, but in my opinion this should be our goal. Why would you want to ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in San Antonio - Ohana Academy - Tenacity

    Tenacity

    Tenacity: 1. the quality of holding fast; persistence 2. the quality of retaining something 3. the quality or property of holding together firmly This weeks powerful word of the week is Tenacity. Tenacity is defined as: 1. the quality of holding fast; persistence, 2. the quality of retaining something, and 3. the quality or property of holding together firmly. I love the sound of the word tenacious. I have always strived to be tenacious in my game on and off the mat. I personally feel though, that I have a better definition for the word tenacity in regards to jiu jitsu. I personally think we should define Tenacity as “strength with a purpose. It’s not just being persistent ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in San Antonio - Ohana Academy - Submission

    Submission

    Submission: the action or fact of accepting or yielding to a superior force or to the will or authority of another person. This weekend was an awesome weekend for Ohana Academy and also for Jiu Jitsu. On Friday we had Professor Gliesdon “Poney” Cutis compete at F2W’s pro grappling event in Austin, Tx. The very next day we had kids, teens, and adults compete in F2W’s grappling tournament. Later that evening we had the pleasure of watching the UFC and the demonstration of the relevancy of jiu jitsu in MMA. I want to start by saying congratulations to Professor Poney and all of the kids, teens, and adults that competed this weekend! After watching Professor Poney and also both ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in San Antonio - Ohana Academy - Compare

    Compare

    This weeks powerful word is Compare or Comparison. The definition of compare is to : estimate, measure, or note the similarity or dissimilarity between. Now in reference to your journey on the mat, I believe that comparison is a subtle trap that can cause your game to plateau. Its a trap that all of us are guilty of falling into at one point or another. In last weeks post we talked about vision, and how knowing what you want to become will dictate the decisions of what you do in the moment. I reference this because this weeks powerful word Compare is the enemy to vision. Think about it for a second. You all have specific goals that you want to accomplish with Jiu Jitsu. (become a ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in San Antonio - Ohana Academy - Vision

    Vision

    Vision: 1) The act or power of sensing with the eyes; sight 2) the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be 3) an experience in which a personage, thing, or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present This weeks powerful word is Vision. Vision obviously plays a major role in the act of engaging in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It is something that i can pretty much guarantee we take for granted. Vision in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu though is so much more than just what you see with your eyes. Your vision on the mat is two fold. On one hand you hold a vision of what you want to become and on the other you hold the vision of what is reality at ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in San Antonio - Ohana Academy - Exlusion

    Exlusion

    This week our powerful word is Exclude or Exclusion. Which means… 1.) to shut or keep out; prevent the entrance of. 2.) to shut out from consideration, privilege, etc 3.) to expel and keep out; thrust out; eject As i mentioned in last weeks post this would be the 2nd part of what i see as one big major concept. Embrace (last weeks powerful word) can not truly happen until you Exclude the obstacles and obstructions to your path. Lets take a look at this concept of exclusions and examine it from a different perspective. I remember when as a blue belt i could count on one hand the amount of times i had tried to go for an ankle lock or a toe hold. I remember asking my ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in San Antonio - Ohana Academy - Embrace

    Embrace

    This week will be part 1 out of a 2 part blog for our powerful word of the week. I had a very hard time choosing between two words, Embrace or Exclude. Both I feel are filled with awesome concepts pertaining to the mat and also our lives. We will start with embrace and finish next week with exclude. The word embrace is interesting because it has a duality of purpose in the fact that it can be used as a verb or used as a noun. The verb form of embrace means to : 1. to hold someone or something in one’s arms, especially as a sign of affection 2. to accept or support a belief, theory, or change willingly and enthusiastically The noun form of the word embrace means: 1. ....

    Complacency

    Complacency :self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies I would like to start off this week with saying congratulations to both Ray “The Judge” Rodriguez and Chris “Rakoon” Kuntschik. Both guys walked into the cage this past weekend and represented their craft and our family. No matter the outcome proud of both you guys. This weeks Powerful Word is Complacency. Complacency is the great antagonist/ adversary to progress or success in your game. It is such an easy trap to fall into that most of the time you are unaware of when you grow complacent. Be on the lookout for areas that you have grown complacent in your game because ....

Also want to say a big thanks to all the coaches that worked hard to be at every person’s mat during their matches. This was not an easy task because we had 56 competitors from Ohana alone.
