By approaching every training session with a giving mindset, we can all elevate our teammates and ourselves, and motivate one another. It will also have a profound effect on our approach to life off the mats.
I often hear people ask if they’re too old to begin training a martial art, specifically BJJ past the age of 40. I didn’t begin training BJJ until I was 45.
Access to the current legends of BJJ is one of the things that keeps our sport it legit and pure, and is key to why the BJJ community is so special.
It's been difficult for me to learn to release my ego from the BJJ learning process. I love the opportunity to learn a new skill at this stage in my life.
I’ve found that training BJJ with intent and purpose allows me to train much BJJ more efficiently, more safely, and more often.
