Every BJJ practitioner wants to better their game, right? For that matter every musician, accountant and rodeo clown probably feels the same way. So what’s the secret to getting better at BJJ (or anything else?) As the old joke goes, (Q:) “Excuse me, sir. How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” (A:) “Practice, practice, practice.“
No matter your reason for training Jiu Jitsu – exercise, competition, self-defense – you’ll see the improvement of your skills are directly correlated with the amount of mat time you get. If you come only once per week or less, you most likely notice you’re getting passed up by the folks who are coming 3-6 times per week. To really retain what you’ve learned, you should be shooting for a minimum of 3 classes per week. More if you can manage it. This is most important if your goal is self-defense. You need these techniques to be second nature.
If you’re coming less than once per week, you’re not getting what you can from BJJ. Sure, you’ll learn something, but the chances of successfully using the techniques you’ve learned in a real situation or competition are greatly diminished.
