Jiu Jitsu is a pursuit that is greatly affected by what we can “see”. When we roll, our mind decides what data that our eyes take in is important, and what isn’t. In this way our mindset, or focus, controls what we see, and therefore what we can capitalize on. So whether it is a selection of techniques, a system of control positions, a set of conceptual tools, or even a personal game plan that requires a particular entry, your mind will focus on the data relevant to what you believe is valuable to your pursuit, and discard or diminish the rest. So, if you’re feeling stuck in a rut, like you’ve plateaued, etc., then change your focus! Give your mind a new set of data priorities, and you will change what you perceive. If you change that, then the way you express Jiu Jitsu will change accordingly.
