Why Is It So Important To Be Consistent In Training Jiu-Jitsu (If You Want To Improve)?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could change your whole BJJ game with the snap of your fingers…
In just a few training sessions – to upgrade it to a completely new level, one that your training partners will admire?

Well, it doesn’t work like that. Nothing worth having comes easy, including substantial improvements on the mats.
Brian Glick explains why you need to be opting for learning Jiu-Jitsu in-depth:

In school you might remember trying to work quickly (and at high intensity) to absorb as much as possible right before a test.
It’s called cramming.

Cramming is good for shallow recall that lasts about as long as the exam, but can’t produce any deep understanding of the material.
The reason has nothing to do with the subject or how much time before the test.

It’s because cramming doesn’t change habits – and habits are where our jiu-jitsu (and our life) is made.

In other words, you need consistency to truly improve in Jiu-Jitsu:

If you want better jiu-jitsu, the way to get it isn’t by trying to rapidly and intensively absorb some technique or skill.
It’s to go to class and train, go home and shower and wash your gear, then come back and do it again.

If you can do that every single day for a month, you’ll be on your way to changing your habits.

Of course, it’s great to have big goals, but…

Don’t let them distract you from the thing that might really be in your way – your habits.
To shift them can make a big difference in your results, one that may mean reinventing how you see yourself and what’s possible.
