There will always be stuff to improve in your Jiu-Jitsu. And not just in terms of technique, but also in terms of how you approach learning new things.
The change to your approach doesn’t have to be dramatic to work, though. Andrew Wiltse lays out a simple approach that will do loads of justice to how you think about learning new things… By pointing out that you must not wait for someone to spoon feed you information:
If you don’t know a lot – learn. If you aren’t good at something – practice. Look for information yourself. Don’t wait for someone to spoon feed you. Ask questions when you need to, but try to figure it out first.
Independent thought and critical thinking can be applied to literally everything. It’s a tool that’s only limited in its usefulness by the person wielding it. Sharpen the blade and strengthen the arm. Self improvement for the win.
Ultimately, you’ll want to place lots of focus on experimenting with new information too:
For BJJ – experiment. Think things through ahead of time, then try them out.
Test things on various skill levels and body types. Play the scenarios in your head. Watch your own footage and think: “What if I did this here instead?”
