Jiu-Jitsu is slowly becoming a trendy sport; it has cool gear and it creates a great camaraderie between people. It is a sport where a hobby can easily turn into a lifestyle. Jiu-Jitsu is an excellent way to spend your free time; however, it can become a problem and a burden if it generates pain instead of pleasure. In order to reach your highest potential in this sport you must ask yourself a very important question, why am I doing it?
It is very important to determine the real reason why you are starting and practicing this sport.
The sport of Jiu-Jitsu is very new compared to other sports. Since it’s not a mainstream sport, there’s not many resources or much money spent on researching the sport’s Do’s and Don’ts. Rightfully, a lot of people are copying the training regiment of the best athletes in the field. However, no one’s questioning if or why their training is the best. Since they are the ones winning the medals, it’s only normal to assume that their training regiment is the way one can reach their highest potential. Wrong, and I’ll tell you why.
