New Students training with advanced students:.
Most times you will find that, as a newer student in the class, you may be paired up with a more experienced partner. We do this so that the more experienced practitioner will help guide your progress. DO NOT FEEL LIKE YOU ARE HOLDING THEM BACK. This is not only good for the newer student but also for the advanced one! Training with someone a bit less experienced helps advanced students hone their technique.Â To efficiently help a newer student develop proper technique, advanced students have to focus on the minute details. Details that you may have been previously over looking because of their familiarity with the move. In addition, Jiu- Jitsu enriches people’s lives.Â We call this “Paying it forward”. When advanced students were new, someone guided them and now they are returning the favor. So not only does the advanced student get better but so does the new student and this continues to perpetuate the mentality of Paying to forward to our fellow team mates!
See you on the mats!
