“The 3 days here is the most valuable thing I’ve ever done in my life. And that’s the honest truth.”
Baptism By Fire: Warrior Week – not the bmac show – Episode 13 – 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Decatur
It’s hard for me to describe Warrior Week (technically, I believe it’s called Warrior Evolution. But I always say Warrior Week).
Truthfully, I’m of 2 minds when it comes down to it. Part of me loves it. It’s always good bonding with my guys and lots of fun and it’s an interesting look into how far a really dedicated Brazilian Jiu Jitsu player has separated himself from the standard human being, at least when it comes to physical altercation and dealing with stress.
But, it’s also kinda hard for me. Because the objective is to break these guys emotionally. That’s what they signed up for. That’s what I’ve been contracted to do. Everyone knows that coming in.
And breaking someone is hard. Because truthfully, you just don’t know how they are gonna respond to that. And it’s not necessarily fun to push someone past their limit. All of us have stuff going on inside that no one else knows or understands. And when pressed, that can get ugly if we aren’t emotionally prepared to deal with it. Luckily, the staff at Warrior Week is ultra good at what they do and they’re supporting these guys the rest of the week with really powerful counseling and support. The objective is to leave bigger and better than when you showed up. Break down to build up kind of thing.
And it works. These guys consistently tell us that it’s a life changing experience. And so we keep agreeing to do it. And it keeps producing results.
I hope yall enjoy this look inside Warrior Evolution. I’m interested to hear the responses lol. It happens here at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu in Decatur, Alabama. We get contracted to do it a couple of times each year.
