BJJ Advice: Maybe You Don’t Need To Learn More Techniques

There are so many techniques in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, right? And you want to learn as many of them as possible, as well as stay up-to-date with the new discoveries and details.

But here’s the thing: you probably don’t need to learn new techniques. Not an enormous amount of them and not now, at least.
Instead of adding more things to your plate, you should focus on the already existing ones.

Brian Glick explains why “more” isn’t always the solution:

Quantity is not always the variable you’re solving for.
Do you really need dozens more entries to a specific guard or a hundreds of variations on a certain submission? Probably not.

What we see, over and over again, is the particular ability of the highest-level practitioners to STREAMLINE what they do.
They deliberately chisel away unnecessary material rather than glob on a bunch of extras.

Sometimes being “more informed” isn’t the goal.

It’s easy to fall into the “information rabbit hole”, so try and stay away from it:

Simply because you get more information faster doesn’t mean that you’re going to have a significant advantage over someone who has JUST ENOUGH of the right information.

Knowing what every single person is saying or doing about everything all the time is exhausting. It’s hard to keep up with.
And it strips you of the opportunity to truly study, explore or implement something that might be truly important to your practice.
