    New North Miami Beach Kickboxing Classes Starting in September

    We know it’s been a while since our last post, but hey, this pandemic took us all by storm. From having to close the school for two months, to reopening with new guidelines, 2020 has been a year for the books. But we’re happy to say that Marcus Aurelio Jiu Jitsu Academy has bounced back stronger than ever since we’ve reopened, and because of that, we’re now finally able to extend an additional curriculum to our members: kickboxing at our North Miami Beach location. While Marcus Aurelio Jiu Jitsu Academy prides itself on teaching the gentle art, we also know that MMA basics are fundamental to a fully fit fighter. Let’s be clear—we are by no means ....

  • Private Jiujitsu Classes in North Miami Beach

    Private Jiujitsu Classes in North Miami Beach With Miami-Dade county entering the first phase of reopening, we’ve reduced the size of our jiujitsu classes in North Miami Beach to ensure that six feet of social distancing are kept among all of our students. We perform deep cleans three times a day, provide hand sanitizer for students and teachers alike, take student’s temperatures before allowing them onto the mat, and only allow students to remove their masks and step onto our tatami once they’ve been cleared of any COVID-19 symptoms. We’ve also taken the liberty of taping down square spaces on the mats to ensure that six feet of social distancing are ....

  • TRAINING WITH A UFC VETERAN

    TRAINING WITH A UFC VETERAN

    Visit Sport’s Joe and you’ll find that even close to twelve years after his initial 2008 match against Ryan Roberts, UFC veteran Marcus “Maximus” Aurelio still holds a spot in the top ten fastest submissions in UFC history. This is no easy feat, so of course, neither is training with him. That said, training with Master Marcus is as rewarding as it is challenging. Training with him and the rest of his students, it’s easy to see why a UFC veteran like Master Marcus has so many wins and so little losses (all only ever lost by decision). His favorite phrase when sparring on the mat is saying “out of balance” before flipping you on your back like a ....

  • MUSHIN NO SHIN, THE MIND WITHOUT A MIND

    MUSHIN NO SHIN, THE MIND WITHOUT A MIND

    People have occasionally asked me why I enjoy martial arts. Why on Earth, people wonder, would anyone want people pressing down on them, putting them in holds and chokes? Why would anyone let their kids train jiu jitsu? Isn’t there a high risk of injury? What about aggression? My only answer to questions like these, is to ask the person how much they really know about the philosophy behind martial arts. Martial arts is not all screams and wild kicks. It’s not a barrage of mindless attacks that you saw in a Bruce Lee movie. It’s a methodical and complex language of self-defense, where you both perform and live by a set of core principles. My favorite principle of jiu ....

  • THREE REASONS TO TRAIN AT OUR NORTH MIAMI BEACH BJJ ACADEMY

    THREE REASONS TO TRAIN AT OUR NORTH MIAMI BEACH BJJ ACADEMY

    Children from ages 7 to 9 are impacted by jiu jitsu differently from the rest. They’re old enough to know better than their younger classmates, but haven’t yet developed a lot of emotional maturity. At our North Miami Beach BJJ academy, our jiu jitsu curriculum helps develop children in the following ways: PHYSICALLY At a time in their lives when 7 to 9 year olds have weak fine motor skills, we strive to teach them how to maintain proper form. Drilling proper form through a steady routine that expands and builds upon their frame of reference is essential to building up a crucial network of physical skills. Among these skills is balance, coordination, flexibility, ....

  • THE BENEFITS OF CHILDREN WHO PRACTICE SPORTS

    THE BENEFITS OF CHILDREN WHO PRACTICE SPORTS

    According to Psychology Today, children who practice sports have a better developed sense of right and wrong. They’re used to being the focus of attention, and always let their feelings get in the way of their judgment. We try to teach them patience and kindness through small gestures: bowing to the mat before stepping onto it or helping your partner up. These actions teach children who practice sports to respect and appreciate others. This is important, because young children give in to their impulses quickly. This can create bad behavioral patterns, where children feel that it’s ok to be rude if what they want isn’t delivered. In light of this, jiu jitsu is used as ....

  • THE EXERCISE DILEMMA

    THE EXERCISE DILEMMA

    WHEN IT COMES TO EXERCISE, TIME IS MONEY Have you ever wanted to exercise without taking too much time out of your day? We know how it is. There’s work from nine to five, plus traffic thrown in for good measure. That means that approximately eight to ten hours of your day (if not more) are dedicated to going to work, working, and then going back home. According to NPR, the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2017 American Community Survey data showed that the average American’s commute increased from 26.6 minutes to 26.9 minutes. That 18-second increase added an extra two and a half hours on the road for Americans in 2018. And as we all know: time is money. While ....

  • MURILO BUSTAMANTE’S SEMINAR

    MURILO BUSTAMANTE’S SEMINAR

    WELCOMING MURILO BUSTAMANTE This past week, Marcus Aurelio Jiu Jitsu Academy had the honor of welcoming Master Murilo Bustamante onto our mat for a jiujitsu seminar. Once the reigning Middleweight UFC Champion, Murilo has been practicing jiujitsu for over 30 years, and he has lived by the creed of martial arts philosophy all his life. He’s a tall man, easily clearing six feet. His salt and pepper hair is cut short, and he sits down on the mat wearing his glasses, calm and collected. Everything about him exudes control–from his tone of voice to his patient explanations, and before training he invites us to sit and do a quick study of jiujitsu. You’ve ....

  • HOW TO FIGHT INFLAMMATION

    HOW TO FIGHT INFLAMMATION

    Jiu jitsu is an intense sport. Due to its intensity, the amount of calories a person can burn during a couple of hours of jiu jitsu is monumental. But a sport with such great benefits such as lowered cholesterol, increased circulation, greater muscle mass, and improved balance does come with one occasional setback: sports-related inflammation. Sometimes it’s an old injury, other times it’s simply a matter of overexertion; but whatever the cause, sports-related inflammation can seriously alter your jiu jitsu game if left unchecked, and you’ll pay for it with joint pain. HOW TO AVOID SPORTS-RELATED INFLAMMATION Preventative care is always the first line of ....
