Don’t Mess with the Steward Kimura Safety System

Stewart’s Kimura submission is serious business! Thankfully he has a system in place to teach you how to prevent getting caught.

One of our own, Matt, an eager-to-learn blue belt was struggling to keep his arms close to his body. However, thanks to our beginner instructor Stewart, Matt was able to resolve this issue with his arms.

Let’s just say that your belt serves more of a purpose then you know.

I just got off the phone with Eric.

We had a radical conversation, as are to be had with Mr. Hemphill. One of the things I’ve always admired about the man is how neutral he has managed to stay in the BJJ community here in Portland – he’s the Switzerland of inter-gym politics.

One of the most important bits of our conversation was the topic of cross-training between gyms. His position is CRYSTAL CLEAR: Cross-training at gyms is healthy and beneficial activity for all people involved in our sport, no matter the team affiliation. With that in mind, Eric Hemphill encourages athletes from all gyms across the city to come visit Nemesis. Conversely, he recommends that all gyms should be open to athletes coming to their gym to share in the wealth of knowledge which is so fundamental to our sport.

So, come drop in at Nemesis! Let’s train together as athletes allied in the goal of improving our Jiu-Jitsu. Train with everyone!
