Whether you’re a beginner Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or you have been training for years, you can benefit from keeping it simple.
Jiu-Jitsu is a bit like an arms race, where there is a relentless pursuit of acquiring as many weapons as possible and advancing our skills and abilities as quickly as possible. This process can be confusing and many grapplers without a proper personalized game. We sometimes ignore the basics of BJJ that build the foundations.
