New Years Jiu-Jitsu Goals for 2011

Oh, man!  2011 is here and its time to review my goals I set last year in my post “New Years Jiu-Jitsu Goals for 2010”.  I have been thinking about this post and avoiding it too.  I did better this year on my goals then in 2009.  This year I actually know what I succeeded and failed at.  LOL!

Successes

  1. Tap out some one I never have before in my school (I got Pat and Chris both purple belts)
  2. Compete in a tournament (I competed in the Scrap for the Skull Tournament)
  3. Read all my Jiu-Jitsu Books from cover to cover. Even the ones I buy new this year (I was close enough I am going to count this one)

Failures

  1. Increase my stamina (I gained weight and went backwards on this)
  2. Post a blog to www.jiujitsumap.com 5 days each week (I did ok for the first half of the year but then lost the habit)
  3. Get up early every morning and drill with my Submission Master Grappling Dummy.  (This was just plain wishful thinking.  I don’t get up in the morning)
  4. Increase my flexibility
  5. Watch all my Jiu-Jitsu DVDs.  Even the ones I buy new this year.
  6. Keep my BJJ Journal up to date.
  7. Know all the purple belt requirements.

30% is a “F”.  If I let that get me down then I’m done for.  I will roll over all the ones that I was unsuccessful in to 2011.  I’m not going to beat myself up about it.  After all I do BJJ for fun and exercise not for a living.

Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu
