So you’d like to improve better and faster in Jiu-Jitsu, correct?
There are two avenues that you could take: working on your already existing skills and acquiring the skills you don’t have just yet (but need).
So which route should you go for?
John Danaher explains more:
The first option is easier and far less time consuming.
In general, it’s much easier to improve what you’re already good at than to learn something totally new. So, if you’re looking for fast results – this is the path to take.
However, there are diminishing returns on this path. At some point the improvements become smaller and smaller as you try to wring more and more out of the move.
At some point the improvements become so minor that a plateau is reached.
So, for the sake of long term progress, you should go for the second option…
But still combine the two approaches:
For long term progress, you have to start incorporating new skills.
It can be frustrating at first, as initial progress can be slow, but this is the only way to ensure long term growth.
At any given time, you should be walking both paths.
Divide your short term projects around improving existing skills and your long term projects around acquiring new skills – this way you’ll always be pushing onward and upward.
