Teamwork makes the Dream work

Many people go through life without breaching their comfort zones, with shelter and ease.

Jiu Jitsu fixes that, it’s a team centric, individual sport, however contradictory that may seem.

As an individual, once you begin rolling, it’s all on you.

There’s no time outs, no substitutions, and no backup.Just you, your knowledge, your body, and your understanding against your opponent’s similar qualities.

But in that same statement, the knowledge you gain, the understanding you receive, and your body awareness doesn’t come without hours and hours of sparring with your teammates.

Professor Michio Grubbs has said it time and again, “No one can practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu by themselves”. You need a team, you need dedicated training partners to give and receive knowledge, and you need an atmosphere to cultivate that exchange of information.

To get the right atmosphere, it all comes down to rules (stay with me). The basics are simple, protect yourself and protect your partner, but beyond that there’s more. Protect yourself, but take risks. Protect your partner, but apply the pressure. In other words, work. This is where confidence comes in, when you know your partner is going to put in the work, to apply the pressure until someone cracks. And in that moment you realize that you’ve figured it out, you made it through, win or lose you are still there.

Jiu Jitsu lifestyle will make you a better person

One thing that jiu jitsu does is simplify things. When you know your partner is putting their work in… with you as the target, you’re no longer worried about bills, or meetings, or work, just the man in front of you. There’s simplicity in that, and when it’s all over, you can rely on those moments for everything else. Whatever your weakness may be, these struggles improve them. They harden your fortitude because you’ve been through worse on the mats.
