Getting back into BJJ after a long layoff can be tough. For numerous reasons.
In this video I answer the question Jacob sent to me about his Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training.
His question was
“I trained BJJ for about a year and then had to take a break for school reasons and it’s been another year since I’ve trained. I’ve forgotten a lot of passes, submissions and guard work. How do I get back into the swing of things going back to the gym?”
So in this video I share details about the 1st lay off I had as a Blue Belt and the frustrating problems I experience when I came back.
I discuss the most frustrating issue I dealt with which primarily stemmed from my identity that I had developed prior to leaving the gym.
I was really good, and when I came back to Brazilian Jiujitsu training with everyone in the gym. I had lost my step a bit and it was a bit of a blow to the ego.
So if you’re in the middle of a period of time off from BJJ or maybe you are getting back into BJJ after a time away. Hopefully this video is helpful!
