One of the reasons that I love Small Circle Jujitsu is that it gives me motivation and great reason to cross-train. Cross-training involves doing other activities or exercises with the goal of helping you train for your primary pursuit, such as Small Circle Jujitsu. I have always tried to train as rigorously as possible in jujitsu class in order to get the most out of my limited time in class. I never get enough time in class though. Over the years, I have had to come up with other ways to try to stay in good enough shape to be as effective as possible in Small Circle Jujitsu and to give myself the best chance at self-defense. I am motivated to do other things – to cross-train – because I know that this will help improve my Small Circle Jujitsu. Knowing that every little bit helps, it makes these other activities much more fun and meaningful.

I have continued to train over the years at NESCJA and look to Sensei Ed Melaugh as a mentor because Small Circle Jujitsu is the most complete and practical self defense training that I have experienced. We constantly challenge ourselves to get better and more efficient at defending all varieties of attacks including open hand attacks, grabs, punches, kicks, knife mugs (both moving and static), club, bat and machete attacks, both gun and assault rifle confrontations, and multiple attacker scenarios. We always train to defend ourselves while staying standing if possible but we are prepared to go to the ground and grapple and defend quite readily. Many of us probably go the mat too quickly for Sensei Melaugh's liking! Our philosophy at NESCJA is to offer many different tools to our students who will then find the right ones to fit their body types, movement styles and personalities. We teach our students to make the best decisions possible and to never give up and to keep…Continue
