I love this question.
Mainly because it shows commitment to the art as well as coach-ability to do whatever is necessary to improve. 😊
There are a few key activities that will most certainly help your performance on the mat.
1. Your diet.
Firas Zahabi ( Georges St-Pierre‘s trainer.) Once asked do you want your body to run like a tow truck or like a Ferrari? If you want to run like a Ferrari then feed it like one (Paraphrase)
No matter how much skill you have if you just killed a chipotle burrito one hour before class you will have a miserable experience. 🤢
Taking the time to stretch your body and keep your hips knees and shoulders loose will pay off and help you with the difficult movements that are required for Jiu-Jitsu.
3. Physical and Mental Drilling 🔁
There is now plenty of evidence to support the fact that mental drilling sided with physical drilling actually has very effective results. Do the move in your head and visualize it the exact same way you did it in class. This will maximize the amount of reps you get in and that’s helped commit it to muscle memory.
4. Review The Curriculum 🎥
We have an entire video curriculum given to our adult beginners with the roadmap to their first earned belt (Blue Belt)
You can watch these videos and drill it at home to see incredible results when you return of the mat!
See You On The Mats,
