This month we focused a more advanced game with a lot of emphasis on repetition! High repetitions are going to be required in order to commit these moves to muscle memory. A lot of the moves over the next 5 weeks are going to have multiple steps, odd angles, and require you to step out of your comfort zones. Use these next 5 weeks to prepare you for the Grand Canyon State Games in April!
Another long weekend of BJJ competition in the books! With the new year, the new team, and the new direction, we had a very good turn out and a very good performance by all Jay Pages Jiu-Jitsu & MMA Students.
Since joining the Caio Terra BJJ Association, along with Kevin Scott and his students from Phoenix BJJ & MMA, and Mike Martin and his guys from Strongheart, we were able to amass a team of 60+ competitors. We had one of the larger teams in the tournament. We ended up taking 3rd as a team! A top 3 team placement in the first tournament of the year for such a young team here in Arizona.
This is a great start and great momentum for the rest of the year. Myself, Kevin, and Mike are very optimistic about what we have to look forward to as a team for the rest of the year. We see nothing but great things for the Caio Terra Association Team here in Arizona. Keep training hard, keep up the great work and drill, drill, drill! OSS!!!
Below are results of the Jay Pages Jiu-Jitsu & MMA competitors from this past weekend. I’ll work on getting all of CTA’s up. Hopefully by tomorrow.

With the end of the 2013 year and the beginning of 2014 upon us, preparation for 2014 is in the works. As we all relax and enjoy the holiday season I am putting into motion changes to be made for the new year. Changes that will benefit us all as a team and individually. Every decision I make is made for you! It’s made with the student in mind. You guys and gals always come first. I feel the changes and sacrifices I will make for 2014 are necessary and important and will help sky rocket everyone’s development.

As some may have seen or not seen, Jay Pages Jiu-Jitsu & MMA is now affiliated with the Caio Terra BJJ Association. This is great and exciting news for the team. There are so many opportunities ahead of us to look forward to. This change came about for so many reasons. Reasons such as support, communication, development, etc. At the end of the day the change came about because I was concerned for the development for myself, my academy, and most importantly, my students! At Jay Pages Jiu-Jitsu & MMA, the students always come first. Every decision I make for the team is for the students first and foremost. With that said, below is some info about the Association and the benefits we can look forward to.
