4.) Show Up and Never Give Up
According to Paragon black belt Sean Apperson, a coach of mine, the only secret to getting good at BJJ is simply that. Of course, easier said then done. They say out of 4000 people whom start Brazilian Jiujitsu, one will eventually obtain their black belt. The majority will quit during blue belt. Personally, consistency in BJJ is something I struggled with. Sometimes, practice was what I looked forward to the entire day. Other times, after a long hard day at school or work, the last thing I felt like doing was having a sweaty 200+ lbs. guy sitting on my chest determined to bend me into funny little shapes.
Saving the World:
If you are the zealot type, radical activist reading this and I made you feel awful, I must thank you for continuing this far. Rub some salt on it, make the appropriate adjustments, and get back on the front. The world is not in good shape. You have a job to do and chances are, you are outnumbered 20 to 1.
