AWARENESS AND THE JIU-JITSU FIGHTER
By Guest Writer: Nicolas Gregoriadis, Roger Gracie Black Belt
Every week I get emailed questions from readers of the Jiu-Jitsu Brotherhood asking things like:
"Thereâ€™s this big guy in my class, how do I beat himâ€™ or â€˜I canâ€™t get the half-guard to work on this one purple belt"
I find this frustrating because I cannot tell you how or when you will be able to beat a certain opponent. I cannot give you a magic formula or a secret technique that will be your sparring partnerâ€™s kryptonite.
But what I can share with you is a way to make it so that itâ€™s not an issue anymore.
For me, the answer was to change my jiu-jitsu training from an â€˜outcomeâ€™ based to â€˜awarenessâ€™ based experience.
