How BJJ Students of All Levels Have Learned To Even The Odds Against Younger, More Athletic Training Partners, Reduce Injuries, and Cut Their Learning Curve In Half!
The answer has nothing to do with “old man power.” It all comes down to understanding the correct technical approach and training strategies to keep you healthy and progressing – no matter your age! Stephen Whittier’s Founder of 40 Plus BJJ Success and 3rd degree BJJ Black Belt
“If you’ve ever fantasized about keeping up with the younger, super-athletic “mat rats” at your school and supercharging your learning curve while putting less strain on your body, this is the book for you (or becoming a “Seniors Division” grappling machine in competition)…
Then you’re going to enjoy what I’m about to share with you here!”
“I’m gettin’ too old for this [email protected]$T!” most of us have said or thought at some time (it’s the Jiu-Jitsu version of Danny Glover’s iconic phrase from Lethal Weapon).
The truth is that even if you worked hard to keep fit and in the game, things change once you become a “older” grappler…
You have more obligations than most of the young people you train with (and you can’t always live on the mat like the guys in their twenties and thirties);
You recover more slowly from intense exercises and injuries, and unless you have a significant advantage in experience and talent, you frequently feel like you are “second fiddle” to the younger, more athletic pupils in your school.
And, let’s face it, even if you enjoy jiu-jitsu, it can be really irritating!
But what about the solution? “Old Man Power?” No! Why would you want to rely on physical characteristics that will inevitably deteriorate over time?
Moreover, contrary to popular belief…
It’s More Than Just “More Mat Time”
Although more time on the mat is always a big part of improving your Jiu-Jitsu game, it irritates me when people tell me that their instructor just says “keep training” despite the fact that they’re getting smashed day in and day out!
Here’s the issue… Anyone who says it’s ALL about getting more mat time is implying that all mat time is created equal. Not so!
Unless you are one of those “freak athletes,” it will take a long time to become proficient in BJJ if you train in the traditional “learn a few techniques then roll” method. To get things moving faster, you must first master the fundamental principles that power the Jiu-Jitsu engine!
That is why I created the 40 Plus BJJ program.
And I’m pleased to report that the response has been absolutely overwhelming…
Here are just a few examples of many.
More than 40 BJJ Success Stories…
“I started training in my late 30s and am now over 40. I was nervous in the back of my mind: would I end up with a battered body and a bruised ego? Would I be able to hang out with a group of young men?
I never had those concerns again after I began training with Coach Steve…. At our school, I’ve seen students ranging in age from six to sixty. What I’ve learned from Steve has enabled me to compete on the mat with competitors my age or athletic guys in their twenties – and win! His coaching helped me win regional tournaments like NAGA, the IBJJF No Gi Pan Ams, the New York Open, the Boston Open (including the Absolute division), and even second place at the World’s!”
Thank you, Professor Stephen; this is gold! Your philosophy and methodology for the aging jiujitsu player are spot on. It keeps me relatively healthy on the mats. With the knowledge you’ve provided, the young athletic punks are much more manageable.
-Mr. Omar Rodriguez
Thank you for sharing your grappling techniques and grappling theory with older grapplers. I am sixty-six years old and recently competed in the “Big Apple Tournament,” where I finished second in the 40+ blue belt lightweight division. My BJJ training is very enjoyable for me. I train with men and women of all ages and weight classes. Individualized training and games for older people are required to make the most progress. As a result, the information you provide is extremely useful. Thank you once more.
Altough I am 35 years old and one of the gym’s senior practitioners. I always struggled to keep up with those younger guys. But not any longer. The information you’ve been sharing has been extremely beneficial. There has definitely been an improvement in my game. So much so that my coach is beginning to suspect that I am training elsewhere.
Thank you for sharing these ideas, Stephen.
They are greatly appreciated!
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your videos and tips! As a 40-year-old Bjj practitioner, these have helped me refocus and motivate me to change my way of thinking! Thanks:)
Steve, I always appreciate the time you put in to provide great free content (I know it’s great because I use the principles and techniques in my own BJJ). As someone who has purchased your longer instructionals in the past, I can attest that they are always worth far more than the very reasonable price you charge. Your knowledge, whether free or paid, is always appreciated!

Some will argue that there is nothing to it… that these guys must train like everyone else, but only full-time, or be genetic freaks
