Don't Miss Out On Your Chance to Join The Next Chewjitsu Camp in 2024!
I'll be hosting a 3 day BJJ training experience at my gym in June & August of 2024. If you'd like to join me then read all the details below.
If You've Ever Wanted To Meet Or Train With Me. This is The Best Opportunity You'll Ever Have.
You may have heard some stuff about a Chewjitsu camp coming up or maybe this is the 1st time you’ve heard anything about it.
Either way, keep reading and I’ll give you the nitty gritty on the upcoming event.
But 1st let me tell you why this camp is happening.
Over the last few years my Youtube channel has grown to the point where yours bearded has become a sort of household name in BJJ. I have people visiting my gym all the time and messages from people about potentially visiting.
And back in 2020 I was making arrangements to have a BJJ camp at my gym. I thought it would be a good chance to have a small group join me at my gym for training and other activities. And then Cap’n Covid struck and put an end to all that.
Then in 2021 while I was coming back from a seminar. A group of people in a Fans of Chewjitsu Facebook group were talking about traveling to my gym to train with me and my crew. Tons of people joining in and considering it. So we ran out 1st Chewjitsu Camp at my gym in August of 2021. It was awesome and went really well. So well, in fact that many of the campers from last year have kept up with me about doing another in 2022. That camp went great and now we're back for 2023.
So with that, we'll be opening up registration for this year's Chewjitsu Camp.
Last year's camp sold out in about 24 hours so hopefully if you missed out last year, this one will give you a chance to have a memorable experience with me and my team here in Louisville.
During the camp we’ll be doing a number of things. Obviously BJJ training sessions will be a part of it. During these sessions you’ll get a chance to learn from me in person as we do a deep dive into some of my best positions and techniques in BJJ. We'll be laser focused on specific high percentage options and get lots of reps in over the weekend so you can leave with new techniques ready to use when you get back to your home gym.
We'll also have a special mobility / functional stretching class led by my friend Eugene who is a physical therapist and BJJ Black Belt. The goal of this session is to give you a series of simple movements and stretches that target some of the areas we as BJJ practitioner suffer from. By using the movements, you learn at camp on a regular basis you'll be able to feel looser, be more flexible for techniques and be less prone to injury. Trust me, I know this from experience.
On Saturday we’ll have a cookout or dinner somewhere which will be a good chance to hangout and chat with me and everyone else in the camp.
We’ll also be including a breath work / meditation session on Sunday for those interested.
I'm hoping to help you improve your BJJ and give you an intimate one of kind experience.
With this in mind, registration will be limited to a small number of people. This is so I have a chance to interact with you during the camp. I've been to camps where there's a ton of people. And while that's cool and all, it doesn't leave a lot of room to get to chat or get 1-on-1 help.
If you're reading this page then I imagine you've watched some of my videos, read my emails and/or listened to my podcasts. And with that, this is a chance to get to meet in person in a smaller setting instead of massive crowd where we never even get to have a conversation.
