Sometimes we wake up energized and ready to attack the day while others we tend to lag behind. So too in Jiu Jitsu do we have days where we feel like our 20 year old version walloping every partner that comes before us along with days where we regret stepping foot in the dojo. Understand, that the instances where you are tired and possibly under motivated could be the best opportunity for you to develop your true Jiu Jitsu in addition to your will power and inner strength. It wasn’t until I met Saulo and Xande Ribeiro that I realized, only when you are tired and void of your natural physical advantages do you truly learn what is leverage and what is not. The need for excellent timing also arises as you are no longer able to muscle through sweeps and submissions as you once were. How do we apply this to life? With the exact same skill and cunning we use to survive and get the tap in Jiu Jitsu.
