Have you ever had a situation in your BJJ gym that freaked you out to the point where you were scared to train?
I can’t say that I have, but I have had certain situations during my Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training that made it hard to do certain techniques.
Like the time I broke my nose when I went in for a takedown on the legs. My nose was broken in 3 places.
Afterwards anytime I was training BJJ I was gun shy about going for a takedown. Instead I would just pull Guard.
Overtime I was able to ease back into my takedowns and lower level shots for grappling by drilling them more and practicing with more experienced practitioners.
Eventually I was back to shooting on legs in hard training sessions and Brazilian Jiujitsu competitions.
I bring this up because I received a question from Gustavo, a BJJ White Belt, who was choked unconscious during his training and it really left an imprint on him.
He was fine afterwards. But the situation was somewhat traumatic and is really messing with his ability to train BJJ. Especially the rolling portion of class.
