Engage in the Conversation of Jiu Jitsu | Albuquerque Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Engage in the conversation of Jiu Jitsu. All too often we see one athlete trying to force their game on their opponent, or conversely hunkering down permanently into defense positions. These tactics are the equivalent of shouting at the top of your lungs, or refusing to acknowledge another person in order to dominate and “win” an argument. Instead when we train Jiu Jitsu we should engage in the conversation!! Just like in an exchange of ideas, in Jiu Jitsu we learn significantly more about ourselves and Jiu Jitsu and our opponents by allowing exchanges of technique and position to take place. Playing the game is why you are here!! So play, learn, have fun, be vulnerable, attack, let go, attempt submissions, give up positions, explore, etc. If you cannot engage in grappling with humility and a desire to engage in “exchange of ideas” then you will be limited to aspect of Jiu Jitsu you already know, the thoughts you already think, and you will plateau. So open your mind, let your ego die a little, and have fun engaging in the complex and rewarding physical dialogue of Jiu Jitsu - Coach Ben Henning
