We are getting ready for another action packed White Belt team event! We will be using the quintet ruleset to facilitate team building and competition development. Our team captains will be Ron and Greg, and we will divide the White Belts into teams with a Belt Anchor on each team.

This is going to be super fun, check out the video from last year's event!
A few weeks ago on Jan 14th, JT from Bulletproof for BJJ gave us an amazing workshop with tons of great takeaways. JT started us off with an assessment of where we are with some mobility KPIs in regards to being injury resistant, he also gave us tools for improving our problem areas.
