BJJ Today!

July 16, 2015

The art of learningjiu how to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is just as much of an art as how to teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Being that it is 2015 and with the advancement of communication via social networks and having learning tools available to us has deeply influences this present, my present generation of jiujiteros, advancing the of sharing information, speeding up the learning curve. Thus allowing current practitioners to acquire skills much more rapid pace than ever before. Why is it so many practitioners have to go else where for more additional resources? Why are most schools continuing to teach in such a similar cookie cutter fashion as their teachers had in the past and their teachers before them?

The fact that Jiu Jitsu’s popularity is greater now at this time then ever before I believe that it is critical moment. Our martial art can either grow stronger and we become more united or we can continue to grow and for the sake of growth let our martial art become watered down. It is up to those coming up the ranks now to uphold the standards and to keep it from becoming watered down. We must strive to not only for growth in numbers but in growth in learning how to teach leverage the tools available to us to create pass down something greater than giving to us now.

With all that said what are some different ways or modes, formats of teaching have you seen in BJJ? What can we  do to make it better?
