Receive BJJ Tips Monday – Friday:
In today’s video I answer a question about BJJ training from our friend who is a Blue Belt in BJJ. He says that he enjoys rolling with the higher ranking belts inside his gym because they are a bit safer.
But the issue there is that he is almost always playing pure defense.
He enjoys rolling with the white belts and less experienced people because he can execute some offensive techniques. But the issue with them is that they aren’t as safe as the higher ranks.
So his question boils down to this. Do you have to train with white belts and less experienced people in Brazilian Jiujitsu, of can you just roll with the higher ones?
In my experience it’s good to have a mix, as I’ll explain in the video.
Against higher ranking belts you learn what good Jiu-jitsu feels like and you begin to zero in on your defense.
But it’s still important to focus some of your rolling attention on people less skilled than you. Because against these people you get a chance to play around with more offensive based techniques.
In this video I share a story from my experience with a friend who got way way better at Brazilian Jiu-jitsu once we had new people in the gym to train with.
Hope you enjoyed the video!
