How to roll longer as a BJJ White Belt is something that I get asked all the time. Both from my students and from my Chewjitsu group online.
I remember this being an issue for me. Even though I was a young wrestler, I still struggled with being able to roll for a long period of time. I found that I just gassed out so quickly and it was frustrating.
One of the reason I has such a problem when I tried to roll longer as a BJJ White Belt was that I didn’t breathe correctly. It was really bad at times.
So bad in fact, that one of the commands my coach had drilled into my head was simple, “BREATHE!”
Yeah, that’s right. Not only did I drill my techniques but I also had to drill my breathing. When he yelled breathe. I was take a very deliberate breath.
In addition to breathing. Another thing that someone roll longer as a BJJ White Belt is to be more conscious of when they are using energy. Often I’ll see white belts being very tense and using LOADS of energy, yet nothing is happening. Learning when you can conserve energy and when you need to expend it is one of the cornerstones to becoming more efficient.
In this video I share some details on both of these tips.
