How’s it like to have a famous Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu coach?

Are you interested in learning Jiu-Jitsu? If you are, then who inspired or encouraged you to learn this sport? Do you know that with this kind of sport, your body needs to be firm? It has to be strong and filled with muscles. You might be watching a lot of intense fighting scenes from various shows, so you should have observed that these individuals have big bodies. It’s because they are practicing Jiu-Jitsu and also working out in the gym to maintain their figure and weight.

I know that this sport is somewhat risky because you may end up with muscle pains and even broken bones, if you do not know how to protect your body and self-defense moves or to block the attack of the opponent. But, I am sure that you will not be very interested to learn Jiu-Jitsu, if you are not physically and mentally fit. As a fighter, you need to be alert and you must be very fast in organizing your moves. How will you attack the opponent and how will you avoid his attack? You need to focus on these moves and it would be difficult for you to do that without being smart.

A lot of experts and professionals are well-known all over the world because of their attack and submission techniques. Some of them are not even playing anymore, but coaching to younger generations, whose passion is in Jiu-Jitsu fighting. Now, if you would like to be really good in this sport, then you must conduct your training under one of the favorite coaches from New York like the BJJ fighter – John Danaher. In my opinion, learning under John Danaher would be very exciting. It’s like he is not just a coach, but a good example of a BJJ fighter to be admired. So, if he would be your coach, then how would you feel or how would your training be?

Who is John Danaher in the field of BJJ?

John Danaher is a black belter of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and at the same time, he is also an instructor and a coach under the Renzo Gracie Academy, which is located in New York City. He had been receiving praises from various figures, such as Greg Jackson, who is an MMA or Mixed Martial Arts guru and then, the legendary Vinicius Draculino. He also trained several athletes like Gary Tonon, Eddie Cummings, George Saint Pierre and Gordon Ryan.

As a BJJ fighter, his favorite position or technique is heel-hook. So, if you will learning or training Jiu-Jitsu under John Danaher, then pretty sure that you would also learn this position. It would be great, if you could learn more about the heel-hook. In such a way, you will have an idea about what you will learn from him. I know that you will feel very excited the moment you first see your coach or instructor. But, do not get too excited because you need to focus on what he is teaching.

Why do you want to learn this sport?

One of the reasons why you go for trainings and enroll in academies, who offers particular sports is due to the fact that you have a dream, an ambition and you would like to follow the steps of your coach. At first, maybe you do not understand clearly why you need a training. But, you will only be successful in a particular field, if you will learn how to listen and have self-discipline.

When you go for a training, everything is not just about fighting techniques. It is not only about how you will win the match, but it has also something to do with your behavior and personality. If you are too excited in attending your training, then will that allow you to focus? It’s like when you are in a hurry to fight and finish a match, then will that assure you of winning?

It is true that you may be attending a training under one of the most popular teams or BJJ fighters, but you should not be too proud about it. You need to stay as humble as possible because that is how John Danaher is. If he is a selfish person, then maybe he would not even want to share what he knows, right?
