BJJ and Drilling: “I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything, Which Means I Probably Should Do Something”

(I’m quoting myself, in case anyone was wondering)

As much as we all love jiu jitsu, sometimes we just don’t feel like doing anything. Drilling, sparring, you name it- there’s no interest in doing it. It could be due to a minor injury, or just our brains saying “your know what, I’m really not feelin’ this today”. Let’s be honest, it does happen- rarely, but it does happen.

It’s during those times though (barring a serious injury) that you should probably try to drill something. It doesn’t have to be hard and fast: it can be something basic- nothing too fancy, really just to keep the body moving and the mind active. By keeping in the routine it will be easier to stay on track when you do get around to feeling plucky and ready to be more active in class. for most, especially in the beginning of their jiu jitsu journey, when they stop it becomes much more difficult to get back into the swing of things, rather than if you had just maintained a routine throughout.

So really in short, even if you don’t feel like moving- if you can, you should.

That’s all for now folks- have a great day everyone!
