Training BJJ after an injury or surgery is always a worry any grappler has. I’ve had a couple of surgeries and numerous smaller injuries. And anytime one of these happens I always wonder, “how’s training going to be when I get back?”
In this video I answer a question from a guy who is getting ready for meniscus tear surgery on a torn piece of cartilage.
In general meniscus tears are rather common and I’ve seen plenty of them in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
During the video I talk about some of the warning signs that a meniscus injury is brewing and how to proceed with it.
In my experience our bodies often try to tell us that something is up and we don’t listen. We don’t stretch, we don’t do anything strengthening we just keep doing everything exactly the same. And then something eventually goes wrong.
If you’re getting ready to have or have just had a meniscus surgery. I hope the video is helpful to you and your Brazilian Jiujitsu training. If you don’t train Brazilian Jiujitsu, no biggie, I hope the video is still useful.
And as much as it sucks to be broken or injured. Try to take the lesson away about what your body is telling you.
