One of the biggest cliches you’ll hear in jiu-jitsu is that your jiu-jitsu practice will be a marathon, not a sprint.
The Importance of Pace
“Slow and steady wins the race”
Here are some general rules I follow to mitigate my injury risk:
1. I do not train at 100%.
2. I avoid training partners that are erratic/spastic
3. Exercise body control.
4. Take care of your body
5. I eat a lot and sleep well
Injuries can also DERAIL YOUR PROGRESS!
If you haven’t already, check out my latest ebook!
It is a quick, actionable read full of great information on how I have overcome injuries in Jiu-jitsu over the last decade.
The physical injuries are rarely why people quit; I talk all about the psychological barriers to recovery and how you can stay on the mats training for longevity.
