Cardiovascular endurance is what makes you perform when you have been rolling hard for over 10 minutes. You will often see athletes giving up during competitions due to being tired.

If you work on your endurance, you will increase your chances of being able to outlast your opponent on the mat. By adding strength training to that and you will go even further and for longer. It’s important to always remember that strength training and endurance always go together.
