Question of the Day

Question of the Day

After studying other blogs, such as Dream Big, Dream Often, that offer daily questions, I’ve decided to jump in with my own jiu jitsu-related questions. The best way to learn something is to ask, and I love learning about all kinds of things. Feel free to comment with any thoughts you would like to share, whether they are about jiu jitsu or anything else. Here goes…

Here’s a question for you:

What would you change about yourself or your jiu jitsu game? Is there a way for you to change it?

My answer: Right now, I’m fairly comfortable with who I am and my life in general. On the mat, I would love to be more technical and better at getting out from under bottom mount and bottom side control. Really I should get better at preventing it in the first place, but I get stuck pretty often and strong upas hurt my back. My solution to change it: Keep showing up and training.

  1. Definitely agree with you on side control and mount. In the same boat. I also want to get out of the strength mindset. I’m a good sized guy at 225 lbs and have the strength that goes with it. I don’t want to have to use it

    1. Interesting issue to work on. I’m strong for my age and size, but weaker than all the other girls and obviously the guys. I need all my strength just to get by! Thanks for sharing!

  2. This reminds me of our sensei’s comment back (oh, some hundred or so years back) when I studied karate (and I’m paraphrasing): Sometimes if you want your karate to get better, you have to change yourself.

    Annoyingly, she was right. It holds true about karate and many other things.
