Welcome

Welcome to the new and improved website!

It's been about 3 years since I've regularly updated the site. It was time for a relaunch. I've learned so much about the art since then. I'm excited to share all my new discoveries with you.

Welcome. This is the personal blog of Cane Prevost. The blog will be my place on the web to write down my thoughts on teaching and learning the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Who am I?
I'm a high school teacher, father, and BJJ coach. I live in Portland Oregon and train at Straight Blast Gym.

What's this blog for?
I envision this blog as a place where I can share my experiences with learning to teach the art of Jiu Jitsu. My goal is to simplify the art and make it accessible to anyone. I truly believe that Jiu Jitsu is governed by a set of fundamental principles of posture and pressure that anyone can learn with the right guidance. Join me in the journey as I try to make the art as simple as I can but no simpler than necessary. .

Where am I?
I live in Portland Oregon and coach at Straight Blast Gym. I also teach at The Center for Advanced Learning.

    • Thanks Georgette. I’m going to archive the old site and move the best stuff over to the new one. Probably will take a while. Don’t have as much time as I’d like.

    great work,and looking forward to more solid fundamentals.

  3. Love the new site already! Looking forward to seeing more. I’m considering the same transition. I’ve had the .com for almost a year, but haven’t had the courage to make the jump. Any advice?

  4. Hi Cane, firstly I have followed your blog for quite some time, even at the old site! :-) Just thought I’d say keep up the great work and I look forward to your next post!
    Kind Regards
    Felipe
    P.S. I often recommend my students check out your site too, particularly my trainee coaches!

    • I have some new guard passing material ready to go. I’ll try to shoot it when we get there in a couple of weeks. Thanks!

    • Trying to get to it Mike. Finding I don’t have as much time as I used to for blog updates. :( Thanks for checking in.

  5. Cane, awesome stuff – just finished the Mediocre BJJ Student blog and sifted through the Philosophical rants. Would it be alright to interview you about your blog on my blog? Hopefully it would get more readers. I’ve done some recent blogs about “BJJ nerd” sites (with Georgette, the guys from Jiu Jitsu Labs, etc…)

    Be well and keep writing up a storm here.
    Best,
    -Daniel

  6. Hi Sensei Cane. I am from HK and tried your class in Portland before. I will stay in Portland on 1/12-13. Will you have class on these2 days?

  7. Hi Cane,
    Glad I found your website very straight forward and detailed.
    My question is how do you get off people’s grips/resistance when I am trying to apply the technique it seems a bit frustrating when I am learning the technique and yet does not necessarily work when rolling live especially with guys twice my size. Can you give me some tips and insights on how to grip fight? Thanks I would really appreciate it.

    • Alex,
      The key to dealing with grips is to address them right away. A quick trip to youtube will show you some specific techniques but essentially when someone establishes a grip you have to either strip it, regrip it, or neutralize it with a superior grip. That’s all there is.
