Jiu-Jitsu is the pursuit of perfection
Jiu-Jitsu is not about perfection. Not even the best among us have perfect Jiu-Jitsu, nor has anyone in the past and neither will anyone in the future. Jiu-Jitsu is about the PURSUIT of perfection through the use of rational thinking in response to the myriad problems we encounter and testing these thoughts physically through trial and error and edging just a little closer every day towards the unattainable dream of perfection. Take confidence in the fact that if victory is all you seek, your Jiu-Jitsu doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be better than the person in front of you and better than you were the day before. The real battle however, is not with the person in front of you; but rather with the distant dream of perfection within you and the growth of character and skill required to push yourself daily towards that shimmering dream you know you will never reach but whose pursuit will make you a far better person than those who live without a dream and an ideal. At Savarese BJJ (www.njbjj.com), we stress LONG TERM goals. I always tell my students to never take any training session too seriously. In years to come when you move up the ranks and earn your blackbelt, you will never remember that bad training session you had on a tuesday night in August as a bluebelt. It just doesn’t matter. If you stay focused on long term goals and just trying to be a little bit better than you were than day before, you will succeed in this art.
