Since my last post on lessons I have learned in jiu jitsu (LIFE lessons — not just jiu jitsu moves and techniques), I’ve continued on my journey. The first time I posted, I was just a few months into my study. When I completed my Combatives belt (a Gracie standard), I added a second post.
This past month, I hit another achievement, having been awarded my Blue belt. So, it is time for a bit more reflection and thought.
After 16 months of fairly intense study, I realize that the deeper I dig, the more there is to learn. Kind of like life. Something seems so simple… until you start in. Then, things become far more complex.
Mastery is the point when the complex becomes simple again. And I am far from that.
Join me as I explore 5 more lessons I’ve learned (and relearned) from my time studying jiu jitsu.
