Speech: Complementing your training outside of the Academy

 Everything that is good for your body is good for the practice of martial arts.  Some of the things that we recommend are:

  1. A Healthy diet
  2. Drink plenty of water-bring a water bottle to practice and drink at least 8 classes of water per day.
  3. Eat well balanced meals, it is really good to do a protein shake right after training or make sure to eat a meal with lots of protein.
  4. Doing other activities outside the Academy like hiking, running, or riding a bike.  The Gracie family is big in doing things outside and felt that it got them in touch with themselves and nature.
  5. Stretching-Yoga is a great complement to Martial arts.  I recommend doing a 20 minute stretch first thing in the morning if you can work it into your routine.  Try to stretch after class if there is not another class starting.
