Training twice a week, every week is the ideal training frequency in your first year or two of learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
There is no shortcut when it comes to consistency and honestly, it is the fastest way on seeing results. So a quick tip on getting good fast is “Train twice a week, every week.”
Consistency is THE secret ingredient to acquiring any skill. When a student finally adopts how the process works, they become amongst the most technical practicioners around. We’ve noticed the best in the world come from this mentality and the hard work they display is merely them just working their craft. Just like sharpening a knife, steady passes on the grindstone sharpens them on each training session.
A curious thing about discipline is that it’s a passive trait. When it comes to building discipline, it starts with a simple question.
“Why do you want to train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?”
The honesty that comes from the answer is where discipline is born. Just as it was mentioned earlier, consistency in remembering your why gives energy meaning. Its through that meaning that any student of the art becomes and realizes the why. By that time, everyone would think that you and they were all disciplined.
