If you feel stuck in your BJJ progress, one actionable piece of advice is to focus on refining your fundamentals. This may seem counterintuitive, especially if you have been practicing for a while and feel that you should be progressing to more advanced techniques. However, mastering the fundamentals is essential to improving your overall game.
To break through a plateau, consider the following:
- Go back to basics: Refine the fundamentals of the positions, techniques, and movements that you use in your game. Focus on perfecting your form, your timing, and your understanding of the techniques.
- Drill and repetition: Drill your techniques repeatedly to the point where they become second nature. Focus on perfecting the details, and aim to perform the technique with precision and efficiency.
- Analyze your game: Watch videos of your training sessions or matches to identify areas of weakness and areas where you can improve. Focus on specific techniques or positions that you struggle with and work to improve them.
- Seek out guidance: Consult with your coach, training partners, or more experienced practitioners for guidance and feedback. Ask for advice on improving your techniques and for tips on how to overcome your weaknesses.
Remember, BJJ is a journey that requires patience, perseverance, and dedication. By focusing on refining your fundamentals, you can break through your plateau and continue to progress in your practice.
Have fun 🙂
