Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Your Dreams

I have heard it said that you are truly fluent in a foreign language when your dreams are in that language.

After I started BJJ I spent a lot of time thinking about it and trying to perfect my technique.  The funny thing was I didn’t dream about it very often.  Now that I have had to stop training at the dojo, I find I am dreaming about it more.

Case in point: Last night I dream I was in front of a large public building that had a open forum area.  A man was acting very strangely and began to get violent.  He came by me dragging what looked like a another man he had accosted.  Without thinking about it I hoped on his exposed back.  I got one hook in and my arms in place for a Rear Naked Choke.  My weight pulled him down and he let go of the other guy and tried to get ahold of me.  I was having trouble getting the second hook in but I was still able to cinch the choke tighter.  Then my wife woke me up for work. D’oh!

My dreams seem to point in the fact I feel confident enough to use BJJ in a elevated situation but that my confidence is not rock solid.  In most of my dreams I just can not finish.

I would be interested to hear about others Jiu-Jitsu dreams and their thoughts on them.  How often do you dream about BJJ?

Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu
