Do you want to accelerate your learning when it comes to Jiu-Jitsu? Do you want to become more proficient in your technique? Then start mentoring a white belt or belt below you. Why?
- When you teach someone else it helps you retain what you have learned.
- As you think through how to teach the technique or concept you find new points that you hadn’t noticed before.
- It gives you a chance to increase your own muscle memory by repetition.
There are other pluses too. There is nothing like helping someone through something that was very difficult that you wish you had help on. It create camaraderie in your school, dojo, or academy.
Mentor a white belt today. Its a win-win situation.
