People have internalized many of their patterns, and one of the habits we often do without thinking is to seek organization. This tendency to seek comfortable and familiar routines can be harmful to our developmental growth in jiu jitsu. Instead of trying to control and simplify everything, embracing the chaos allows for opportunities we would not otherwise have. Departing from the beaten path lets us explore and grow with fresh experiences. New challenges are crucial to growth and improvement in jiu jitsu and other fields.
- People often try to control the patterns and organize the flow in Jiu jitsu, sometimes subconsciously.
- It’s a better approach to take a risk and learn, by embracing the chaos and the unknown, than staying in a comfortable routine.
- Finding a balance is important. Find an equilibrium between new experiences and orders of operations, and established patterns.
“This is one of those things I think a lot of us know logically, but we don’t know “heart and soul”: it’s not something we understand and utilize on a consistent basis.”
