Want to retain more information in BJJ class? Get to sleep and dream


We all know that we need sleep. It’s a necessity for good health and resetting the body. If your goals are set high in BJJ, sleep can be one of the greatest assets to your game that you’re not taking advantage of. Sleep is of course essential for recovery. Even the average practitioner calls upon his/her body daily to rise to the occasion and perform in BJJ class.  Sleep can be as important if not more important than our nutrition in some cases. If you’re a competitor, the demands placed on the body can be much greater.

So, aside from the recovery of muscle tissue, healing injuries, resetting the nervous system, etc., what else happens? Well, A LOT. But most importantly, when we sleep, we dream. Some experts claim, and there are many studies that suggest this, dream state is where our brain begins to process the things we’ve learned. It starts to draw parallels and make connections between old and new information.

Does this sound important? It is. We spend so much time and effort trying to digest the things we learn in BJJ class. Especially as a beginner. We want so badly to make those connections that will take our skill and training to the next level. So, after a long training session, how can we commit these things to memory, and maximize what we take away?

Get to bed, sleep, and dream. Aim for a minimum of 8 hours per night and make an attempt to hit the sack every evening at the same time. Limit your exposure to blue light (phones, iPads, TV), and dim the lights in your house to allow your body to begin to relax. Your brain is an amazing tool. It only fires on all cylinders when it is properly taken care of. Everything it needs to function properly is provided by sleep. Give it what it needs, and it will return the favor by helping you connect that triangle to omoplata transition you’ve been working on!

While we're on the topic of sleep, check out Travis Stevens' best-selling instructional which includes all of his favorite "Chokes".  Learn directly from this Judo Olympian and John Danaher black belt all the secrets that have made him one of the most successful grapplers in American history.
