BJJ and Balance: the Importance of Taking a Break

Good morning everyone!

Last week after Abu Dhabi New York Pro Trials I sort of took it easy in class, sort of lax with my diet and even skipped a day (gasp!) to get ready for a Halloween party over the weekend. It was all right, but I’m starting to get antsy and ready to get back to work, particularly with training.

Breaks can sometimes be just as important to your training as the drilling, sparring, etc. If nothing else, it’s one of those “absence makes the heart grow fonder” situations. Who knows, it may be just what you need to get through a slump you may be experiencing- getting away for a day, or a couple, and coming back to training with a fresh perspective and renewed drive to solve whatever problem you may be facing.

Anyway, hope everyone has a great Monday!

    Monday = mandatory rest day. It’s horrible, but getting through it makes me get back to training with more motivation. Gives me time to figure out what I was doing wrong before and how to improve on it. Plus it’s sometimes good to be reminded that there is life outside jiu-jitsu/training.
