This started as a blog about training together as a family, in part to inspire other women & families to get involved. As female participation in jiu jitsu has increased, as we have grown as athletes and as we learned that families training together aren’t such an anomaly, the blog has evolved. Jen gets personal with posts on ambition, challenges & achievements in BJJ, CrossFit & with nutrition, while Tom's posts are more educational, informative and analytical in regards to training. On occasion you may hear from the kids.

How do you remember?
I attended the Michelle Nicolini seminar and open mat on Sunday. It was a great day of training with like minded women, and a couple of young ones. We focused mainly on open guard and did a few things from closed guard.
As soon as I got home I pulled out my notebook and wrote down everything that I could remember. Unfortunately I found that wasn't much. The moves that I did remember all blended together. To make it more difficult, I didn’t have a training partner from my gym with me so I couldn't rely on anyone else to help spur my memory.
Fortunately, one of my friends from another gym was there and videotaped a few segments. I have resorted to begging for a copy.
A representative from Jiu Jitsu Mania was also there taking photos and shooting video. I'm hoping that a lot of the footage makes it onto his site. (By the way, great content can be found at that site - check it out.)
I hate that my memory is so bad.
I've been using Daily Mile to track my regular training, which has helped. But I usually rely on Tom and Logan to help me remember our moves.
How do you remember what you learn in seminars and class?
