I was Rolling with Blue Belts for Black Belt BJJ Competitions
BJJ sport training is one of the only sports I’ve ever seen where there is very little methodology of how hard to train.
Most sports combine some mixture of hard and lighter elements of training to round things out.
But Brazilian Jiu-jitsu often doesn’t. So practitioners often fall into this misconception that the only way to get better in BJJ is to GO HARD all the time.
In today’s video I answer a question from our friend who is asking about how to roll with weaker smaller people during BJJ training.
He says this not because he wants to adjust to them, but because he implies that he isn’t going to improve if he rolls wit them.
I try to debunk this myth by sharing how I rolled with mostly White and Blue Belts for some of my early Black Belt competitions.
Very similar to weaker people in the gym. I could crush them if I wanted. But I roll with them very deliberately to improve and prepare myself for Black belt matches.
If you’re in a similar situation in BJJ. I hope this video encourages you to think a little differently about how you can train with smaller, weaker or less skill BJJ training partners.
Talk to you next time!
