Have fun while training BJJ
Have fun while training BJJ, it can be the key to how fast you learn. Most new students, especially bigger and well built ones, constantly try to use all their strength when they start training. And they are not having fun in BJJ. Over time, they realize that that will make you tired and hinder your technique. That is why smaller practitioners usually get better faster, they are forced to rely on their technique to survive, and their defense gets good more quickly because of this. Here at Savarese BJJ Academy (www.njbjj.com), we preach this concept taught by the great Rickson Gracie (ricksongracie.com), widely considered the best Jiu-Jitsu practitioner ever.
“You don’t learn when you are fighting, bringing in all sorts of tension and emotion. You learn when you are having fun, training in a smooth and gentle way. You need to work on improving your technique until you are comfortable in any situation. Eventually, you will develop a subconscious understanding of the techniques and they become reflexes. Only after you have done all this you are ready to take your natural abilities “off the shelf” and add them back into your game. Now the effectiveness of the technique will be at least ten times better.”
Use this principle and watch your explode get better and faster. Not relying on your strength helps you develop quicker and then the fun begins because you are more relaxed in your training.
