We all know that competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu requires skill and determination. However, that’s true of every competitive sport or activity in existence. Braulio Estima talks about the mindset for BJJ competition in a recent video. He mentions that being nervous before a competition and questioning oneself is part of the magic of competition.
No matter how a person feels before the fight, they have to bring their all during the fight. Nervousness is natural and perhaps necessary for success. After the bell rings and the match starts, each BJJ fighter needs to put all of that behind themselves and compete like their life depends on it.
