Here’s a question for you:
What lesson have you learned the hard way, either on or off the mat?
Apparently I’m a slow learner in many areas. Before I started jiu jitsu I injured my shoulder (partially torn rotator cuff) and my hamstring (pulled doing sprints). Both times I went back to my workouts too soon and set myself back. Now I know to let myself heal completely before resuming my normal activities. I still don’t like waiting but I will if necessary.
Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts.
