Historically I’ve always said that doing something is better than doing nothing, and that training BJJ one day a week is a million times better than not training at all.
But we’re NOT talking about bare minimums today…
Let’s say that you’re super serious about jiu-jitsu, a competitor or super dedicated student. Then how often should you train to get really good?
4 days a week? 5 days a week? Every day?
The answer is that you should dedicate yourself to getting better every single day, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be destroying yourself on the mat 7 days a week.
In this video and podcast episode I go into detail about what your training might look like if mastery of the art is your goal. I also give some real life examples of how to achieve any large, hairy, audacious goal, be that getting your BJJ black belt, building your own business, getting good marks in school, etc.
Many of the examples I used in this episode came from the 1000 Mile Solo which you can find out more about at https://www.grapplearts.com/solo
Good luck with your training and achieving your goals, whatever they may be!!
