If you want to improve your jiu-jitsu quickly, you are not alone. Every day, hundreds of students search for how they can get better at BJJ and FAST.
While there is no magical formula (consistency and discipline are your best shots here), some actions will definitely take you there fastER!
Here are our best tips:
! – Train on a consistent basis
We know, it’s obvious. Sorry, but this is THE MOST important action you can take to improve your BJJ quickly. Don’t train too little, don’t train too much. It could be twice a week, 3x, 4x. Be consistent and train smart.
2 – Ask questions
Having trouble getting the technique right? Are you not sure when and how to use it? Just TALK TO YOUR COACH. Try to truly understand Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and it’s power.
3 – Set goals
Goal setting can put you on a path where you feel you’re making real progress. Plateaus are easier to break through when you see how each day is getting you closer to your big-picture goals. You can make a list of the things you want to accomplish in 6 months (number of stripes, for instance), in 1 year, in 5 years, and so on.
4 – Improve your health and strengthen your body
It’s pretty obvious. Our body is a machine. The more you take good care of it, the better it will respond.
5 – Drill, drill, and drill!
The best athletes in the world all have something in common: they spend thousands of hours drilling and practicing techniques outside of practice. Including BJJ athletes. So, keep this in mind: drilling is one of the best things you can do to improve your jiu-jitsu.
6 – Take private classes
This is one of the most efficient and pleasant ways to rise above your training plateaus. You will gain a better understanding of specific areas of your BJJ game flow and get individual attention to work them out. If you have the chance to do it, DO IT.
