How Jiu-Jitsu Masters Train: Advice From The Over 30s

Masters Worlds was an incredible celebration of how jiu-jitsu really is a life-long past time. With competitors from the age of 30 to 70 on the mats, we got to see how the arte suave can be adapted for people of all shapes, sizes and yes, ages too. 

With so many prominent names in attendance I set out with video camera in hand to find out from some of the black belts over the age of 30 how they managed to stay active on the mats as the years roll by. 

We can't all be world champions, but we can learn from them. Here they share their tips, tricks and advice for anybody over the age of 30 to get the most out of your jiu-jitsu training. 

From Cobrinha's love of Capoeira to Robson Moura's new hobby of cycling and Josh Hinger's two or three sessions per day versus some who only train that much in a week. There are a few common themes; everybody agrees nutrition is key, and everybody says stretching is mandatory. There is something to learn in each interview, so kick back and find out from the best how to stay in shape and stay sharp as you get older.
