Today we have a question from Victor, who has an issue that all of us are going to, or already have, experienced at some point in our BJJ Journeys.
He is 56 years old, a blue belt, started training Jiu-Jitsu when he was 48 years old, and is a relatively small grappler.
Victor says he has no athletic background and has struggled with certain handicaps in the past. He also says when he’s training, he feels a bit clumsy, and he really struggles to find any success during his rolls.
He says that he was recently rolling with one of the younger upper belts and became very discouraged. When his coach saw this, he said to Victory that he should “Just have fun”.
This apparently triggered something in Victor, and he send this question:
What do you do when Jiu-Jitsu is no longer fun for you, and you know you’re not going to get better?
Well, in this video I try to dive deep into that question and chew on a few ideas surround this issue that many people in the Grappling community run into at some point or another.
Hopefully if you’ve found yourself in a rut like Victor, then the ideas in this video are helpful to you.
