Best Method to Overcome the Crippling Nerves of BJJ Competition

How do you overcome the adrenaline of a BJJ competition. Better yet, how do you get over your 1st competition which you completely bombed?

This is the question our buddy Mike sent to me following his less than desirable performance at a recent IBJJF Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competition.

He says the biggest BJJ related problem he experienced with this competition was the nerves and adrenaline that came with it.

He said the adrenaline completely prevented him from playing his game and doing what he wanted to do.

And after under performing during the tournament.

He wants to know how to quell the adrenaline he felt in his 1st crack at BJJ tournaments.

In this video I share a story about 1 of my students who experienced back to back losses before he eventually began winning competitions.

I also touch on the idea that it will become less stressful with time and more experience.

When you compete, it’s a sub skill of BJJ.

It takes a different set of attributes to compete than simply practicing in your gym.

I hope the video is help!
