Can competitions hurt your overall learning in BJJ? Can being in the competitive focused mindset hinder your ability to take on new techniques and add them to your Brazilian Jiu-jitsu?
This is the question I received from Mike who’s a BJJ White Belt.
He said he’s preparing for his 1st BJJ competition and he’s wondering if getting into the more competitive mindset will hurt his BJJ learning.
In this video I 1st touch on what happens when you get into a competitive mindset vs a more relaxed mindset. And how it changes the way we learn and take in information.
Then I talk about how this will affect our BJJ training and learning.
The last section of the video I talk about how you need a little bit of both. And how each mindset or approach has it’s own benefits.
You need to be able to train and be relaxed. But you also need the ability to be sharp with your techniques.
If you’ve ever wondered the same thing or if you find yourself suffering from not being competitive enough or not being relaxed enough during BJJ training then I hope the video is useful to you!
Talk to you guys next time.
