Equality for Women in Competition in Grappling, Jiu Jitsu and MMA Plus The REAL History of Female Pro Divisions in ADCC and Grapplers Quest By Brian Cimins

Taking off the first few months of 2013 has allowed a lot of time of reflection about the past, present and future of Grappling and my overall life balance in general.  I’m proudly doing 1-2 hours per day of meditation to help quiet my mind, relax my body and heal my mind and soul.

Spending time with my two children along with working on several Coaching clients and the 2013 Grapplers Quest season keeps me busy, but not overwhelmed or stressed.

During one of my meditation sessions, I focused on remembering my proudest professional moments in life and wanted to share a few with you… 

5076652294_433fae794a_z

One of my proudest accomplishments and life moments was when Women could finally stand alongside Men at the “ADCC World Championships in 2005”. I’m proud that the “Professional Female Grappling” legacy has been maintained since inception, but It didn’t come easy and no one ever told the full story how it all came to fruition against all odds. 

I forgot how hard I struggled to petition and literally beg for Women to be involved in the first ever Abu Dhabi Combat Club  World Championship Grappling Event in the United States in May 2005. I remember overhearing, “The Event could never be held in Abu Dhabi again once Women were invited.” I couldn’t believe the resistance, but I refused to take NO for an answer. 

For two months, I battled with the ADCC committee, which was completely against allowing Women into the tournament until they finally approved the proposal for Women to Compete at ADCC, but sadly refused to pay the Female Purses.  I refused to give up, accepted their challenge of, “Approved But We Won’t Pay for it” and immediately sprung into action to secure the Female Tournament Purses and sponsorship for the ADCC 2005 in Long Beach, California.  I pushed hard, but in the early days, even $1,000 was a lot from a sponsor, so it was a long uphill battle.

kyra adcc-podiumOur one main sponsor who promised to cover ALL of the Women’s Purses, only to have them completely bail on us just three weeks before the competition, abandoning their investment into paying for the Women’s Cash Prizes, but we still didn’t give up. 

Gilberto from Jiu Jitsu Pro Gear (http://JiuJitsuProGear.com) and I (Brian Cimins from Grapplers Quest) paid for the Women’s Division Purses out of pocket from retail sales from the event because the ladies deserved the same honor and opportunity. I couldn’t let this opportunity pass for Women in Grappling, I knew it’s significance.

I would do it over, again and again, because I’m so glad to see how far the sport has come since the dark ages.   I never fully grasped how the “Women in ADCC” was actually a Gender Equality and Female Empowerment movement victory and was a turning point in the history of grappling. 

Sometimes when you are pushing forward so hard, down in the trenches, you forget to look up once in a while and realize all of the amazing people you met along the way and how many challenging situations you faced – and the Women of Grappling deserved the same spotlight, it was TIME.  Remembering this proud moment makes it all worth it for me. 

Another crazy memory popped up while writing this, I remembered that Alicia Anthony and Gazzy Parman and many of the Top Female Athletes in the Sport put together a Plaque and Beautiful book of hand written “Thank You” cards, but the ADCC Committee blocked the presentation of the award at the 2005 World Championships, so instead, the ladies presented it to me at World Grappling Games 2005 hosted by http://OnTheMat.com – that award meant the World to me and still proudly hangs on my wall today.

Ultimately, I want to Thank ALL of the amazing WOMEN who helped be pioneers for Submission Grappling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and inspirations to many future generations to come. 

Searching through old Grapplers Quest tapes, I came across footage from  the first Professional Female No-Gi Grappling Tournament ever held in the World on Saturday, February 21, 2003 at Grapplers Quest, nearly two years before ADCC “approved” Women to compete alongside Men. 

To celebrate the historic moment for the “First Female Professional Grappling Tournament” and commemorate this historic moment for eternally, I will be posting all of these previously lost matches for Free on YouTube at: http://LiveGrappling.com during this week sponsored by Super Body Care (http://SuperBodyCare.com), Onnit Supplements (http://StressExpo.com) and Meditation and Hypnosis training from http://HowToHealYourLife.com

Thank you for believing in Grapplers Quest, the Sport of Grappling and yourselves – we are evolving and will continue to push through the peaks and valleys of life, together as one.

On the horizon, the first women’s match headlines UFC 156 with Rhonda Rousey. The future is bright for men and women alike in Grappling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts!

With Your Happiness and Success in Mind Always,

Brian J. Cimins,

Founder of Grapplers Quest

Rocky Inspires When Times are Tough

Review of Great Speech from Rocky and Sylvestor Stallone by Brian Cimins

“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

Review by Brian Cimins…
AMEN BROTHER!!!

Never Stop pushing forward, regardless of what obstacles are in front of you. Face them boldly and bravely, live your life cleanly and honestly and you will sleep well and stress less.

I forced myself to remove MY MASK and faced the Brave New World for what it is…CHALLENGING. Going at life without a strategy or gameplan is like trying to paint a delicate Chess Piece with a Home Depot sprayer from 5 feet away…it won’t come out how you wanted or in the case of the chess piece, will get get BLOWN away in the wind and never know what hits it. Don’t let that be YOU.

Life is challenging and will throw you down to your knees from time to time, but that is not FAILURE and YOU are never alone.

The Most Honest Interview I’ve Ever Heard – Kurt “Batman” Pellegrino

Watch the great interview here – please leave feedback on YOUR thoughts:

 

http://fcfighter.com/post/kurt-pellegrino-in-one-of-the-most-honest-interviews-all-fighters-must-see

Kurt Pellegrino is one of America’s best grapplers and jiu jitsu fighters and one of the nicest people in the sport today.  He is the first MMA fighter to open up about the emotional challenges and family time crunching that many of us in the sport experience.  Kurt Pellegrino is one of my grappling heroes for being undefeated at Grapplers Quest and going on to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship so many times, but most for his honesty and openness about his educational and reading challenges and for sharing his true heart with the world.  He is a braver warrior than most – it is the dawn of a revolution of people facing their subconscious thoughts, facing their fears, and taking back control of their lives.  I’m proud of you Kurt, keep it up my brother!

Your Friend, Brian Cimins

Jeff Glover and Brian Cimins at IGJJF 2003

Future superstar and his biggest fan
The picture above is Jeff Glover and I at IGJJF 2003 (or 2004)

Thinking back to the 1st International Gracie Jiu Jitsu Federation Tournament back in the Summer of 2003, when one of our mutual friends, Gazzy Parman, introduced me to a very young and new Blue Belt competitor, Jeff Glover. I remember watching him in awe all day on Saturday watching him submit opponent after opponent with a no-time-limit format and then on Day 2 (Sunday) in the Absolute division competing for a Free Cruise, where I saw a “legal” slam nearly knock out my new friend under Rorion Gracie’s new Jiu Jitsu Event rules. I guess though, it might have been The Day a Grappling Legend Was Born – for sure it was the Day I’d never be able to forget the name Jeff Glover again.


Like many of you, yesterday, I received Jiu Jitsu Magazine and proudly saw Jeff Glover gracing the front cover. Jeff Glover is a 27-Time Grapplers Quest champion and holds the best grappling record in Grapplers Quest history, losing only 4 times over 8 years of active competition, nearly 6 events nationwide per year.

In 2009, Jeff Glover was signed to the UFC Fan Expo to compete in the first ever Grappling superfight in front of 60,000 fans live from Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas at Grapplers Quest – it was a dream come true, but that was Saturday, Jeff wanted to compete Friday too, winning his weight class and the Absolute Division in impressive fashion.

In 2010, Jeff Glover released a great 6-DVD series with Budo Videos, Jeff Glover’s Deep Half Guard available here: http://www.budovideos.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=29007&cat=&page=1 with several other titles already in production.

I always believed in Jeff Glover, because I saw how much he loved grappling and how naturally it came to him, he was “The Natural”. I’m so very proud of you Jeff and always want you to know that you are a wonderful person who can achieve anything in life. Also, please know that Nanny* loves you like another Grandson and my Mother loves you like a younger son. Keep turning heads

Your friend, fan and promoter for life,
Brian J. Cimins, CEO
Grapplers Quest Worldwide

*Nanny is my 84-year-old grandmother who’s watched Jeff Glover compete since the very beginning. She described his excitement level on the mats comparing him to “A young Mike Tyson style aggressive grappler, I Love Him!”.
