Today’s question comes from FitJiuJitsuSydney, they sent me a message about drilling, they ask:
“What do you think about John Danaher’s opinion, saying that more reps don’t always mean better technique?”
Often times we hear about these quick fixes to BJJ, the 3-year black belts, the “Get good fast” instructionals, etc. And often, this undermines the importance of focused drilling and try’s selling some idea that’s easy & tends to lack any sort of nuance.
In the video I’ll discuss my thoughts on John Danaher’s idea and how I try to apply it to my own training, and how I try to apply it to the training of my students.
Specifically, I’ll dive into the issue with drilling where most people just “go through the motions” instead of having focused, intentional, drilling sessions.
I’ll also discuss some ideas related to the growth of high-level athletes in other sports, this idea coming from a book I had once read, and how these ideas can apply to your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu technique and developing that “feel” with intentional drilling.
Now, while I think this focused drilling is great, I also talk about some of the downsides with this type of training, especially for day-to-day grapplers & how adding play to these focus training sessions can be beneficial too.
Hopefully you found the ideas in this video helpful.
