The 3 secrets about BJJ are not really ideas that have been locked in a Jiu Jitsu room for years. It’s just the fact that most people who study BJJ do not realize it, so therefore they are called ‘secrets’.
Every one may think to be successful in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu than the have to be super strong and know a ton of advanced moves. Well, having those extra factors are great, but they are not the key factors on becoming great or really really good in the art of BJJ. If you want to excel in grappling (another common way to refer to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) then your mindset should never be that of beating up someone with pure raw strength until they are bleeding from the ears and eyes. Well, probably too much sarcasm, but you can picture that horrible scene and know that BJJ is and will never be like that. So, I say that you should have the right ‘attitude’ in BJJ. Now I say attitude is a secret because a lot of practitioners of BJJ do not understand the quality of the sport. And that is what you will get from me.
Another secret is to be determined. Having the determination to thrive in one of the fastest growing sports in the world, BJJ, is something everyone and especially ‘you’ should have. Not only determination for grappling, but in life. The techniques in BJJ can play a huge role in your occupation and everyday living. Jiu Jitsu is such a fun sport where you will want to know everything right then and there, but that is just simply too much. Learning moves and techniques will come along the way as you make your journey to become a great grappler and a successor in life.
Okay, now we can get to the third and final secret I promised you. It’s not really a secret, but I guarantee that it will change your perspective on BJJ drastically. Your mind is the most important tool you can use in BJJ and life. Think about it for a second…everything you can possibly do processes through your mind! So how in the world can’t you use it?
