Thread: The bjj commandments

  1. #1

    Smile The bjj commandments

    If you could give a formula to getting good in bjj what would it be?

    Mine would be train hard but not too hard that you overtrain

    Take notes if you can video cam your instructors moves for the day

    when sparring try to do the moves you have spent the previous 30 mins drilling

    try to come on time: this prevents injurie as it ensures your warmed up

    dont compare your self to others

    dont chase belts

    compete ( you learn a lot from your losses)

    LISTEN

    ENJOY

    WORK ON YOUR WEAKNESS

    cross train do something eles one day a week (swimming etc)

    train judo or wrestling etc

    Last but not least SMASH
