Class 2014-04-21: Brain Training

There’s a critical component of your jiu-jitsu game that is often under-trained in new students to the art.  We practice submissions, escapes, and other physical moves, while being told when to execute those techniques.  This is an important aspect of your training, but building an understanding of why you do the things you do, as well as how to think about what you are doing is every bit as important as knowing individual techniques.

This class covers many of the things I wish someone had told me within the first few month of training, and I often come back to these points when coaching.  Many of these items deserve a more detailed treatment.  For now, I’m going to present this video without much comment. I’ll come back to some of these things later when I have time to properly deal with each component.
