    HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE THE AVERAGE PERSON TO GET A BLACKBELT?

    Bom Dia/Good Morning! How long will it take for the average person to earn a blackbelt? This question can be on the mind of many new srudents as they start thier martial arts journey. Last night an above average new student asked this question of us and as we covered the various charicteristics and aspects that make up the level of skill that bjj colored belts rpresent, the true answer to this question sits quiety, frankly: The average person will NEVER earn a blackbelt. A Jiujitsu blackbet takes even longer to earn than in other disciplines. As Master Marcus tells us: a black belt is power. It represents not only tenacious dedication and mastery of skill, it also is a badge of ....

  • New  Kickboxing Classes Starting in September

    New Kickboxing Classes Starting in September

    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. It is good to sharpen that right hook and that kick while staying in tip-top shape. The thing is, our North Miami Beach kickboxing classes aren’t just about cardio—they’re about hand-eye coordination, stamina, and maintaining proper distance from an opponent. One of the reasons we’re now offering North Miami Beach kickboxing classes alongside jiujitsu is because jiujitsu is all about grappling and getting in close, while kickboxing shows us how to fight from a distance. Never knowing who or what you ....

  • 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 ....
