The Psychology of Recovering from Jiu-jitsu Injuries takes you through the journey of the psychological processes that occur when you are hurt. Being injured in jiu-jitsu is painful but for those practitioners who want to stay engaged, the psychological challenges make training even harder. The goal of this book is to provide clear explanations for how the mind works when you are hurt as well as provide my personal experiences overcoming many of the injuries I have had to deal with on the road to receiving my black belt.
In this book, I answer the following questions:
- What are the BIGGEST psychological problems are when getting hurt and how do you overcome them?
- What are the most common mistakes Jiu-jitsu practitioners make when coming back from injury?

Return to the mats in good mental and physical health.
This book is designed to be a quick and easy read full of actionable content in order to get you back on the mats intelligently and without reinjuring yourself. In addition to answering the questions above, I cover:
- Psychological factors that can reduce recovery rates and how they apply to getting back to training
