Another Great Example of How Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Helps Athletes Excel At Other Sports.

There is a reason why many athletes such as the Seahawk’s Marshawn Lynch and Dallas Cowboy’ DeMarcus Ware have implemented MMA training in their conditioning and skills training. NFL analyst, Jay Glazer also operates a Hollywood based gym training elite athletes and has recently partnered up with Gracie Barra’s own, Orlando Sanchez to offer BJJ at Glazer’s gym. Orlando Sanchez is the most recent winner of the world famous ADCC grappling tournament. For more info on Jay Glazer’s program, visit

Premier athletes are constantly looking for an edge over their opponent and for ways to perfect their technique. At the level of competition in places like the NFL, there are not many secrets, thus players often go outside the league and into other sports and disciplines for an edge. Here, the latest edge is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA training.

The moves taught and required in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focus on core conditioning, leverage, body awareness, balance, and determination. These skills and attributes are taught on a daily basis at Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Kirkland. These skills will serve you well in any sport and in life. The benefits of BJJ go beyond the mat.
