How to Finally Understand What it Takes 
to Succeed as a White Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 
Without Having to Struggle Through Your First 12 months..
Have You Felt Like Concepts and Techniques Just Weren't Clicking During Training? 

Are You Wondering Why and How Your Teammates Are Getting Better, Faster, While You're Finding Yourself Stuck in the Same, Bad Positions, Over and Over Again?
Hey, friend!

My name is Chris Matakas, and I know the reason you answered "yes" to the questions above isn't because you're not getting on the mats to train consistently, but rather, it is because you haven't yet trained your mindset and approach towards Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the same way you've trained your body for our gentle art..

I'm a Black Belt now, but I, too, was once a White Belt and experienced those same feelings..frustration, insecurity, exhaustion, and uncertainty as to whether or Jiu Jitsu was really for me..

I ended up sticking with it, even opening up my own academy so I could pass on all of my knowledge to my students..

I learned what it takes to become successful in your early years of BJJ the hard way - through trial and error...lots of it..

What I created and am offering now is the byproduct of my 10+ years of training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu  and years of coaching hundreds of students..

Within the White Belt Battle Plan are 5 key Targets that, when understood and implemented, will expedite your journey to Blue Belt and beyond..

Understanding these key targets is now a requirement for all of my White Belts, and since implementing this into our curriculum, I've seen students ascend the ranks of White Belt faster than ever before, and they do so while having more fun, while creating better relationships with their training partners, and while becoming better at Jiu Jitsu faster.

This Field Guide Is For You!

Professor Matakas has focused on speaking with white belts and has understood their struggles, frustrations and limitations. In addition to his own experiences while obtaining a black belt under World Champion Ricardo Almeida, Professor Chris has harnessed the feelings of the white belt into an easy to read, insightful, and helpful set of rules and thoughts which will instantly improve your Jiu Jitsu mindset and experience. Chris has taken the time to break down the 5 MOST Important Rules that EVERY White Belt should internalize and utilize. And you should too.

This is an absolute MUST READ for any beginner of Jiu Jitsu or anyone looking for new perspectives or approaches to learning or teaching white belts in Jiu Jitsu. To be honest, this was written for the white belts, but MANY of the ideas presented in this book would be helpful to anyone involved in Jiu Jitsu or martial arts. All of that sounds great right? You know what’s even better? The principals provided in this book will inevitably spill over into everyday life. 
The White Belt Battle Plan is the only field guide you need to teach you the correct mindset and tactics to maximize your growth during your first year of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Inside, you're going to learn about 5  targets that will guide you through your first year:
  • Mindset: You will learn how to make the biggest White Belt mind-traps work for you instead of against you.
  • Focus: You will learn which techniques and positions are most valuable during these first 12 months - ignore all others (for now).
  • Learn: You will learn how to approach your training in a way that best positions you for progress, every time you step on the mats. Plateaus will be a thing of the past.
  • Gratitude: You will learn what your biggest asset and treasure trove of skill development and advancement are - they probably aren't what you're thinking!
  • Develop: You will learn how to take what you endure on the mats and use it to advance all areas of your life. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SECTION.

"Chris is one of the great Jiu Jitsu minds"

Chris is one of the great Jiu Jitsu minds that has been part of my career. His knowledge and insight into the sport are second to none. I believe his outlook on life and especially BJJ can benefit people of all walks of life.

"I wish I had this as a White Belt.."

Where John Danaher helps us understand the "What's" and "How's" of Jiu Jitsu, Chris helps us understand the "Why's" behind why we do Jiu Jitsu - being clear on your "Why" is the most important component - and Chris helps guide us there (and so much) in this Battle Plan.
