Stay away from these Training mistakes in BJJ

By Jared Lil Subscribe to RSS | February 18th 2012 | Views:

The mind and body are put to the test when you are training for martial arts; making it easy to succumb to fatigue if you lose your focus. Prepare your body and mind to train Jiu Jitsu because if one is lacking, it will make it that much harder.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is learned from live training or position rolling. That is why you need to have an alert mind and a fit body to ensure safety and endurance while training.

For a Martial Artist to succeed and develop his skill, the following should be avoided in training:

Don't overlook the importance of what your eat and how much rest you get.

A diet focused on the correct amounts of protein, carbohydrates, and fats will be essential, but will add up to nothing if there is no rest period to help the muscles recover. Not following this guideline will turn a good workout into a slow and sluggish chore.

Your training will be eating up a lot of your calories so you need to eat healthy to keep your energy level up. Feeding your body lots of proteins and carbs will keep the muscles supplied and increase your energy level. It is important to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep to allow your muscles the time to repair and rebuild.

Do not let your ego get in the way...

Play it smart and be disciplined when practicing your Brazilian jiu jitsu. You have nothing to prove and nobody really expects you to. You still need a little more time in to raise your skill level in order to start going for advanced moves.

Just keep your focus and tap out if needed. This is training to develop skill not a competition. Before you know it, you will be pulling these moves off in tournaments. Meanwhile, check your ego and don't sacrifice your safety. Most importantly, learn from your mistakes.

Practicing Jiu-Jitsu...

The main thing to focus on when training Jiu Jitsu is to learn a little something and have a good time. Every time you go to your training classes, it must be because you're interested to learn and not just because you have already paid for them. When you're in your classes, don't be afraid to participate. Otherwise, you will only be wasting your time and money. Observe how others move on the mat so you can formulate your own technique.

Everyone Taps...

At first it seems like you are in survival mode during training. And when you lose, your body is going to feel it. The first couple of Taps will bruise the ego just as much as the body. Accept defeat gracefully and never give up training. Best of all, practice proper breathing. This will clear your head and relieve stress while on the mat.

Stick with It...

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is something you are going to have to work at, it doesn't come easy. You need to be religious with your training regimen to develop a routine that will lead to the improvement of your skills. Stick to your schedule. Don't miss a class or fail a workout session. However, don't go the other extreme and come every day. It is all about balance in Jiu Jitsu training and in Life.

The requirements to excel in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are intense but do not forget to relax and enjoy. It is always best to reevaluate where you are in your training and what needs to be changed or modified in your jiu jitsu game. It is physically demanding but when you're really serious about it, the compensation is well worth the effort.
