How To Shake The BJJ Blues

A post on SteveBJJ.com entitled Rough Wednesday Class really made me feel better today.  I had the same thing happen to me a few months ago.  Things were going great  I had recently been awarded my blue belt and I was making leaps and bound in growth in my BJJ classes.  Then one day I came to class and I couldn’t do anything but hold guard for dear life.  I blogged my experience in these two posts, Jiu Jitsu Mind Block – In The Slump and Jiu Jitsu Learning Curve – What To Expect.  I over came the plateau I was stick on with some good advice and friends.  It was still nice to hear Steve saying the same things I had felt at that time.  It validated my feelings and gave me a chance to share with him the fact I found the light at the end of the tunnel and so would he.  My love for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu goes on and I can tell Steve’s will too.  So for all of you out there who are on a plateau or feel the BJJ blues, keep trying and going to class.  Jiu Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu Jitsu.
