Always Improving


If you’ve done Jiu-Jitsu for a decent amount of time you can probably easily identify areas of your game that needs improvement. After even more time you should come to realize that if you are putting worthwhile effort on the mat you will improve. It’s important to acknowledge this when you leave the academy.

That said, It can be easy to get lost in the shuffle of endless techniques and endless taps on the mat. Sometimes beginners lose their initial passion because overtime progress goes from leaps and bounds to small incremental improvements. Reaching your full potential is only achieved by making these incremental adjustments to your game. For them one of the best instructional videos belongs to Ron White: The B.R.A.I.N. Method by Ron White

Ricky Lundell, America’s youngest athlete to ever achieve black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, has a system that he has used to achieve what seems like superhuman accomplishments. On top of a STELLAR grappling career, Lundell went from squatting 275 to over 600 lbs in two years. He achieved this by utilizing what he calls the 1% Improvement Movement. Basically it’s a system of improving incrementally over a period of time. Realistic goal setting also plays an integral role in the system’s success. You can check out a quick chat with Ricky Lundell here.

A great analogy that has always put improvement in proper perspective is to think of your Jiu-Jitsu game like forging and sharpening a sword. At first it starts as a crude hunk of metal. Kinda like your first week of Jiu-Jitsu, it can feel like you are a hunk of steel getting tossed around and hammered on. Over time though the blade starts to take shape. The hunk of metal is starting to look more and more like a sword. Compare this to being a blue belt, an average blue belt not you Nick Rodriguez.

Now that you have a functional sword, most of the changes from here on out will be incremental. When someone reaches a certain point in Jiu-Jitsu their game starts to take shape. However the forge never stops, and more improvements are yet to be made. The sword can cut and that’s great, but a master blacksmith will ask “How sharp can I make this?”. This is a similar approach to many great athletes over time and one that the 1% Improvement Movement encapsulates.

A key to a successful Jiu-Jitsu journey is longevity and constant refinement of techniques. By focusing on the short term everyday battles instead things outside of your control you can ensure your focus is in the right place.
