Caio Terra’s Precious Advice For Those Worried About Getting Promoted

Sure, we get it.
You want to be promoted to the next belt level – heck, you might even feel that you’re ready for it.

But the promotion isn’t coming and you’re kind of stressed about it…
What are you supposed to do?

Well, 12x black belt world champion Caio Terra has some precious advice for you – especially if you’re a white belt looking to get that blue fabric around your waist:

Have fun.

With time, everyone gets better.
With time, everyone gets promoted

But if you focus too much on trying to get better, you might end up not having fun and you might end up quitting.

Now, if you try to have fun, without trying to get better whatsoever – eventually, you’ll get better.
Eventually, you’ll get promoted.

So what happens when you’re having fun training Jiu-Jitsu?

You’ll never quit Jiu-Jitsu, because you are having fun!

Of course, a balance of both is the best option, to have fun and study, getting better doing both.
Because, of course, when you get better, BJJ becomes more fun!

But, like in life, Jiu-Jitsu requires balance.

Therefore, stop worrying about the promotion so much and focus on the journey.
Focus on the amazing feeling of training Jiu-Jitsu and being involved in it.

One day you won’t be able to roll anymore.
And when that day comes, you won’t think much about the belts nor the belt promotions…

But rather, the good times you had on the mats.
