We are all looking at getting better at BJJ. Some of us (I’m the first to admit) sometimes will think about doing other sports to improve their BJJ game.
In my opinion to get better at BJJ, you need to break down what exactly are your weaknesses and then work at solving them seperately.
For example, if my technique sucks, work a lot on drilling new techniques, and spar alot. If my BJJ cardio sucks, spar a lot, and also supplement this by running, swimming or crossfit, if your mental game is weak, compete a lot and see a sports psychologist etc… At the end of the day if you want to get better at BJJ, concentrate the most on BJJ and supplement this training with specific training for your weaknesses.
Most high-level BJJ athletes recommend strength and conditioning programs to all who take part in physical competitions. It gets your body in optimal shape to perform the moves and techniques that are part of your sport. When done properly, it will make you stronger, faster, leaner, healthier and more athletic.
In this short video Buchecha, Braulio Estima Rodolfo Viera and Leandro Lo talk about how much conditioning and weight lifting they do to compliment the BJJ training.
