We create tools that help busy Jiu-Jitsu athletes like you achieve your goals by optimizing your BJJ routine. 

We all have busy lives and sometimes fall off the path. Work, school, injuries, unexpected obligations - it can sometimes feel like everything in the world is conspiring to keep you out of Jiu-Jitsu. We know first hand what it's like to miss two weeks of training, the big seminar and that competition you wanted to compete in because of an insane schedule. And then on top of that, coming back to class feeling like you've lost a step. The Jiu-Jitsu Planner helps you to stay on top of your training routines, focus on your long-term goals, track competition and much more so you can make sure your BJJ game is consistently improving, regardless of what life throws at you.  

How we started

Ben Potesky is the creator of the Jiu-Jitsu Planner. A former wrestler, Taekwondo black belt and boxer, Ben took up Jiu-Jitsu after graduating college and moving to Austin, TX, to fill a void that his day job and gym routine weren't. 

Ben created The Jiu-Jitsu Planner as a way to keep his life organised around BJJ. Life can throw a lot at you. Ben's job had him commuting 70 miles everyday, he blew out his MCL in class, needed to take a several month long hiatus from training, came back strong and then slipped a disk in his neck shortly thereafter. Shit happens. He quickly realized that including BJJ in his daily goal-setting, planning and journaling routine made him more productive, more focused and actually helped him create plan to stay healthy and build his hectic schedule around training. He decided to start The Jiu-Jitsu Planner to help other busy BJJ athletes keep Jiu-Jitsu in their daily routines and experience the same benefits he did.
