Hindsight is always 20/20, especially in jiu-jitsu. As we move up through the ranks, we learn techniques and concepts that seem so obvious after our years of training, but never occurred to us during our BJJ beginner days. While we can’t go back in time and learn these concepts earlier in our jiu-jitsu careers, we can help the newer martial arts generations learn them faster so they don’t have the same struggles we did.
In this video, Because Jitsu‘s Drew Weatherhead does just this, diving into some concepts he wishes he learned as a white belt. Weatherhead is now a black belt with twelve years of training to back up his opinions, so whether you’re a week-one beginner or you just feel like a beginner even after training for a while, listen to what he has to say.
