Hi, my name is Lisa Major, I am a BJJ purple belt training at Impact Gym (CRA) in Bristol, UK.
I started my Jiu-Jitsu journey in 2014, whilst living in New Zealand. I was training and competing in Judo, but wanted to do more. This was when I found Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at The Fight Shop, Palmerston North, and started to learn the basics of this wonderful sport. Later that year, I began training in Bournemouth at IPPON GYM, under Jeff Lawson. I stayed here for 3 years, and made Jiu-Jitsu my soul focus. In 2017, I travelled and trained for 6 weeks in various places around Thailand. Then in April 2017, I moved to New York for 5 months, training primarily under Silver Fox, NJ whilst visiting other gyms in NYC. In late 2017, I moved back to England, and began training in Bristol at Pedro Bessa’s BJJ Academy for the last 2 years. At the end of 2019 I decided to change gyms to focus on No-Gi, with the ADCC trials at the end of 2020.
Over the years I have competed, changed gyms, traveled, got injured, manipulated my weight to increase or decrease, and gained a wealth of experience on the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Lifestyle. Along the way I’ve had many questions, and I’m sure to have more as my journey continues.
This Jiu-Jitsu blog has been created to share what I have learned so far from 5 years of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, 16 years of Judo, a degree in Sports Psychology and Coaching Sciences, and a masters degree in Psychology of Education, to help you find the answers to some of your own questions when going along your Jiu-Jitsu journey.
