BJJ: Rolling and Music- Yay or Nay?

So when we drill and roll, sometimes we have music playing. Most of the time it’s in the pop/rock genre, unless one of the younger guys gets a hold of the music and then it can be dance music, or Rage Against the Machine. Now and again our coach feels like everyone is too ampedĀ and will put something slower and more soothing during class.

My question is, do you feel that music really effects the way you drill and train? Personally, I think if you’re sort of a middle place, music can sway your emotions one way or another. If you’re in one extreme or another however, I don’t think it has much of an effect.

Do you even like when music plays during class? It can be nice in the background, but sometimes it’s so loud I can’t hear our coach, or the timer when a match ends. That’s when I feel like there’s a problem.

Let me know what you think- otherwise, have a great day everyone!
