Competitive Spirit

What competition teaches us

Competition teaches us the values of winning and losing. Win or lose, if you learn something, you are a champion. For us to be an ‘ultimate champion’, we will need to go through a process of winning and losing.  A champion displays courage, grit, and determination. For us to develop these attributes of a champion, it is important for us to feel both the excitement of winning and the pains of losing.

Jiu Jitsu tournaments San Diego Ca; BJJ tournament SD; Excel Jiu-Jitsu MMA Oceanside Vista Ca;We need not be afraid of the pain of losing. The emotions that come along with losing will help to shape our perspective to appreciate the process of preparation. The goal is not the win, but the preparation that it takes to win.

“You can’t win unless you learn how to lose” ~ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Be brave in the face of a challenge

The greatest teachings of the martial arts is composure. To be calm in the middle of the storm. To be brave in the face of a challenge. Jiu Jitsu specializes in handling confrontation and how to deal with conflict. From time to time, we need to pressure-test ourselves and see how we perform under duress. This is when we can use BJJ tournaments as a tool to test our mettle and measure our progress.

The anxiety that comes along with testing our skills in a competition environment, can be quite scary. Courage will be needed as well as faith in our abilities and trust in our beliefs. You cannot achieve great things that do not require great effort. We are up for the challenge.

The practice of preparation

Preparation is the key. We create a vision through our dreams, develop that vision by creating a plan, and evolve that vision through action. To be constantly evolving is our theme.  Everything that we do, is to help us improve. To be better than we were the day before.

Jiu Jitsu tournaments San Diego Ca; BJJ tournament SD; Excel Jiu-Jitsu MMA Oceanside Vista Ca;When we decide on doing a Jiu Jitsu tournament ahead of time, we give ourselves a chance to practice and develop our game plan every day to help fine tune and work out the kinks in our strategy, and to create a smooth flow for game day. We build the excitement of doing our best and can’t wait to show the world how much we’ve improved. We are looking forward to the next competition. It’s another chance for us to improve.
