The World’s Youngest Grappling Prodigy

When it comes to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and combat sports in general, aspiring superstars are beginning to hone their skills by training at a younger age. Provided it does not interfere with their physical development, training early can be a benefit to physical fitness, as well as a means to build confidence and a greater sense of self.

At not even five months of age, my son Nicky Calimbas has begun on the path to becoming the best grappler he can be. Today, he decided to work with his grappling dummy,Snuffaluffagus. (That’s “Gus” for short – named after his Uncle Gustavo Rocha, who gave him his very first gym-related gear!)

Here are several pictures of Nicholas working on the finer points of today’s lesson on the triangle choke and more.
