Training with a purpose:
I’m sure everyone has heard that the key to getting better is to “just keep showing up.” This is true, attendance is a pivotal factor in development, but there are some others. One we highly suggest, is to start training with a purpose. Training goals will vary depending on the person and where they are on their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey.
Your purpose could be a short term goal, as in learning to execute a specific sweep, take down and or submission. Or it could be a long term one, such as weight loss or working on some holes in your game.
Regardless of your goals, it is important to make sure you’re not just going through the motions while training. Try to focus on every repetition, especially the intricate details of a technique. Finally, keep in mind that it is okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are a part of life, as well as a major component in the learning process.
See you on the mats!
