Episode #87 “How do I get better at Jiu Jitsu if I learn something new every class?”

the boys talk about a common theme in the Jiu Jitsu community, which is the feeling of not being able to retain any information because we keep learning new techniques in every class. 

A lot of BJJ academies teach various and disparate techniques during each class. Most don’t teach moves that pertain to each other and many don’t teach how to set them up or defend against them. Learning this way can be frustratingly annoying and can take many years to become proficient at anything. 

Kroyler talks about why this is the case by giving some background on the culture of where the art originated from… namely Brazil. He explains the lack of proper education in that part of the world and how that permeates into the Jiu Jitsu academy. Which is to say, nobody really know how to teach, despite the fact that they might be really good at the art itself. 

That being said, he goes into a bit of detail on how to best overcome a bad curriculum and make the most out of your training if you find yourself in such a situation. 

Really tho, he speaks to the instructors out there who may be listening how to better outline your instructions so that your students can learn as quickly and efficiently as possible.
