In Brazilian Jiu-jitsu there are certain parts of training which require a good deal of conscious effort.
A couple of these aspects of training are drilling and getting in reps, and changing the stories we tell about ourselves on the mat.
We often accept certain traits we have as an almost permanent condition.
Like the question I received from the person in the video. Which is he thinks he gets his Guard passed easily during rolling. And approaches his training with that mentality.
Changing your mindset for BJJ is tough. Because you are often fighting your inner critic which has a propensity to pop up during difficult times on the mat.
As I describe in the video. I had a lot of difficulty not getting my Guard passed as well. And one of the biggest things that helped me over come this issue was changing my mindset.
Along with that, forcing myself to play from the positions that bothered me the most. So I have more time in the position to work.
So if you’re experiencing any trouble with any position. Here is what I would advise you to do.
1. Drill techniques from the BJJ position that is frustrating.
2. Change your mindset with the position. Positive self talk is powerful and will help make the reality you seek happen.
3. Work from that area. Conquer the frustration or fear by moving towards it.
Remember, the beautiful part about BJJ is that your skills and abilities are not permanent. They’re always growing and shifting.
And you have a hand in this!
