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.

Relax! This was the consistent theme in my training this week. Relax my shoulders as I dead lift. Relax while doing double unders. (I realized that I was jumping without breathing. No wonder why I kept screwing up.) Relax while going for the take down. Logan got the points. I got the lesson.
As I write this, feeling sore (and feeling my age) after a week of some tough training and with a sprained toe from BJJ last night, I vow to relax and train no more until Saturday morning. With the exception, of course, for a little training in Just Dance 3.
