Best in Sac, extremely legit. Lots of good schools in Sac, but most of them are owned by Cassio's blackbelts, so why not train at the source? To be able to... Read more

I have done grueling workouts in a lot of sports, 100 degree weeks in football pads, to many suicides to count in basketball practice, training five days a week in BJJ to get ready for comp, even my job is high stress and physically demanding at times, but I tell you nothing has compared to working out with the Professor. Every time it feels like he is trying break my will and take my soul....and I'm barely doing half of what he is doing. That is what training with a World Champion feels like...

Jiu Jitsu cannot interfere in your life. Jiu Jitsu has to become a part of your life. Sometimes it will be a big part of your life and sometimes it will be a small part of your life. Whatever the case maybe, the key in Jiu Jitsu just like in life, is to find that balance. Once you find that, you will be successful... BOA!!!! Now go train. Cassio

I started to hate the weights, the versaclimber, the kettlebells, the sweat, the mats, the grind, and then I realized I hated losing even more. OSSSSS Master & Senior Worlds 2014

BOA!!!!! Greetings to everyone. Each week I will cover a couple of things I want to talk about revolving around BJJ. I hope you look forward to hearing from me. A topic I want to discuss today is the concept of "light rolling". So, when should you "light roll"? Well, there could be several factors for this: 1. Stress of work, family, etc 2. Small injuries 3. Complete exhaustion There could be other factors that I might have forgot but this is the general idea. Now, on to "rolling light" and how I feel you should approach it. 1. Never ask to roll light... Your idea of light might not be the same as your fellow student. It just doesn't work. 2. Light rolling doesn't mean picking a fellow student lighter or not as strong or lower rank as you and smashing him. That doesn't benefit anybody. Light rolling to me is your own concept. You make pick a stronger training partner and accept the roll, accept the positions and try to work through it. The same concept can work for lighter weight or lower rank training partners. This way you are going to work your skills, mental toughness and most importantly your EGO . During a hard time this way you still can figure out a way to improve your BJJ. I feel this is much better then not rolling at all. These our my thoughts and as always they can be open for debate... BOA!!!!NOW GO TRAIN Cassio
