As you’ve probably noticed so far, it’s sometimes quite easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of details that are a part of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The techniques have a million variations to them and just as many details for each variation.
So how are you supposed to handle all of them, then?
John Danaher, one of the best BJJ coaches in history, has great advice:
You can’t learn all the details in a day.
Furthermore, the addition of a single detail is easy enough to learn in theory in less than a minute, but to build it into a skill that you can employ under extreme pressure in live training and competition may take months.
In other words, you should take your time.
There is no point in trying to expedite the learning process.
It’ll take some time to apply those details anyways, so you should aim to get them ingrained well:
So take your time with details.
Build them slowly and methodically into your mind first and body second.
They really will make a difference to your performance – but not today so much as further out into your tomorrows.
