“Starting the New Year Right”
Every year people make New Year’s resolutions, but many fail because of lack of follow up, lack of persistence or unrealistic goals. “Rome was not Built in a day.” It is much better to make smaller, short term goals that are achievable, than going to the extreme. Small, incremental successes will eventually help you achieve big long term goals.
A great way to do this for your BJJ training is to pick two to three classes a week, that you can regularly attend, and can make into a weekly routine. Repetition breeds habit, habit equals persistence, and persistence is the key to success!
Once you have accomplished a consistent training regimen, you can begin to expand your class schedule to incorporate more days. Also try to build good habits outside of the academy. Things like getting to bed early and eating healthy are ways to help you be more prepared for your training. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is first and foremost a Martial Art, but it can also be used as a vehicle for self improvement in every day life.
See you on the mats!
