ROLLING WITH THE FOX
FIRST TIME COMPETING:
First let me say that competing is neither encouraged or discouraged at the Academy. In short, the reason that we take this stance on competition, is because everyone is on their own Jiu-Jitsu journey and that means different things to different people. Competition is a great tool to test yourself at a higher level. Remember in our last segment, we touched upon how the intensity when you begin to roll live can escalate. During competitions , intensity is higher yet. For some people this is not needed, as they have other goals for their martial arts journey.
If you do decide to compete (and this is a very small percentage of BJJ practitioners), you have to train consistently!!! If things come up that prevent you from that, train as much as you can, but postpone competition until a time, when you’re able to devote adequate preparation. When competing, remember that there are many factors that can affect the result (technique, endurance, adrenaline, and competition experience). Even if you’re technically better, and your opponent is more experienced at competing, that may sway the result (mental state, strategy, knowledge/ ability to compete regarding the rules and so on…). From things as obvious as how long and how often you trained in comparison to your opponent/opponents, to perhaps just having an off day or you were sick/injured. Please remember that competition is NOT the be all end all of your BJJ life, it is merely a tool for some practitioners to use to further their development in the art. As Master Renzo Gracie says “You either Win or Learn”
