How Did Caio Terra Receive His BJJ Black Belt In Just 3 Years Of Training?

Did you know that Caio Terra – a 12x black belt world champion and one of the best roosterweights in the sport – has been promoted to BJJ black belt…
After just 3 years of training?

Yes, that’s right. Three years. But how?
He revealed in a conversation with BJJ Eastern Europe:

What happens in practice is that, pretty much, the teacher shows the technique, everyone drills and then they train.
But, most people can’t remember the technique when they train – or, even if they do remember, they can’t use the techniques perfectly because everyone has a different body type, everybody has a different level of strength…

This is why, in order for the technique to work, you can’t just mimic it – you have to understand it.

Terra continues to explain:

What I started doing was that I started studying Jiu-Jitsu, instead of just drilling it.
For, I can’t drill something if I don’t know if it is fully right… If I don’t have the body mechanics down yet.

So, what I started doing was that I started studying the techniques that my instructor was trying to teach.
I was having my partners do different movements, and to induce different reactions from them.

And from those reactions I would start trying to study and to understand why I should do those techniques.

I was trying to mix things up and to make the best out of each technique.
And I think that my technique aspect evolved a lot faster because of this.
