Well, I’ve been working on my BJJ skills for 90 days straight. How am I doing in terms of progress?
Well, I’m not sure. I know that I have improved in many different areas. However, it is hard for me to judge to what degree. My flexibility and mobility has improved and I have become more agile. I am better able to dominate my sparring partners positionally. My open guard and butterfly guard has improved and I have introduced the x-guard to my game. My tap out to being tapped out ratio has improved. I tap people out more than I get tapped out now (at least in my mind). Further, I feel closer to the BJJ world due to this blog and constantly working on techniques even when not in class.
However, even though I am uncertain or at times my growth seems imperceptible, the numbers don’t lie. In 90 days I have performed over 2, 700 reps of BJJ techniques. That has to be good for something even if I can’t always recognize the growth….
