Progress in BJJ is pretty simple really. Consistent training. Thats it. I dont know why but there has been a run on excuses recently on why people aren’t training. And I simply say make training a priority in your life if you are serious about getting better. Injuries happen all the time, but how people respond varies greatly. One guy comes and sits on the mat and watches every class for months even though he cant train and the other just doesn’t come at all. Whats the difference? Priorities. Training in Martial Arts has to be a habit, a ritual, a non-negeotiable. Once your in the groove your confidence, fitness, technique all improve and life gets much easier. If you want to enjoy your training, be consistent, make it a priority. People are happier and healthier when training regularly. Its cheaper than therapy and much more fun than going to the gym.
