I was speaking with a training partner today in class and we started chatting about how well we are doing in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. This lead also to inevitable and occasional BJJ existential moments like, “If I’m not getting better then what’s the point?” but then the conclusion is always that jiu-jitsu is too much fun to stop training!
So let us know how you think about getting better in BJJ. Is it something that consumes you? Are you constantly comparing yourself to the you of one month ago, or your training partners? Or are you more “flow with the go“, and feel like you’ll progress at whatever rate you’re supposed to progress?
