What do you see? | Albuquerque Jiu Jitsu

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.

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

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
