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?
This blog will be my place on the web to talk about my experiences in coaching BJJ. I’ll post my new experiences and lessons learned as I continue to evolve as both coach and student. Essentially this will be my training and coaching diary. I plan to blog my way through our entire 20 week BJJ curriculum.

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

  1. I hope you’ll transfer your old content over? Some really great stuff I will be sad to lose…

      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.

  8. 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?

    Kind Regards

    Cane are you going to cover passing guard?

    • admin says:

      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.

    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.

    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?

  15. Alex MC says:

    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.

    • admin says:

      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.
