Your BJJ training is a long game
Your BJJ training is a long game. So play the long game. When we first enter the world of BJJ training and gain some experience, we always tend to walk into the trap of thinking we are defined by our achievements of today. We aren’t. Ultimately, you’ll be judged by your achievements over the course of your career. Once you understand this, you can begin to see that your central concern must always be improvement over time. Any failure today can be over turned by great success down the line. At Savarese BJJ Academy (www.northnjbjj.com), we often say your Jiu-Jitsu may well be lousy now, but that implies nothing about how it will be in five years. Focus on building to the future and be confident that any deficiencies here and now can be reversed with training and adaptation in the future. No one was born good at Jiu-Jitsu. Also, the best Jiu-Jitsu competors and World Champions also weren’t always good at Jiu-Jitsu either, even they had their time as clumsy beginners just like you! In addition, as you progress in your BJJ journey and achieve the ranks of brown and blackbelt, you won’t even remember these training days as a white and bluebelt that you are taking too seriously right now. They are just part of the long journey of growing on and off the mat as a Jiu-Jitsu practitioner and martial artist. Play the long game. Focus on gaining knowledge and developing skill and one day that will turn you into a very different person on the mat! Trust us with this advice, there will come a time when you look back and laugh about how you are feeling now. And then hopefully you smile looking back at how far you’ve come.
