Be Like Bamboo My Friend

Be Like Bamboo is more than just another BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) brand. It is a lifestyle, a choice, a calling to choose the most simple, strongest and most sustainable path.

It is an attempt to live a more simple life, to be less stressed, to take it easy and be gentle on yourself and those around you in your day-to-day life and training.

Be Like Bamboo is about the "being" and not the "bling." It's about the process and the practice (as a noun & verb) and not being overly attached to the external outcome.

Be Like Bamboo is taking the Gentle Art (Jiu-Jitsu) out of the dojo and into the world. 

Here's what I believe.

  • Brazilian Jiu~Jitsu is about much more than positions and foot-locks... to me anyways. Those are great, but it’s also about freedom, fun, challenging myself and finding flow, working on something interesting, living a life I’m crazy about, making a difference and creating a legacy for my sons.
  • That you are the author and creator of your own unique Brazilian Jiu~Jitsu experience from the very first day you enter the Dojo or academy. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the vehicle but the journey is completely up to you.
  • That you can create meaning from your BJJ training that extends far beyond the walls of your academy into your life and career.

The Dojo is always open!

Be Like Bamboo! Simple. Strong. Sustainable.
