In Lisbon, I had the opportunity to give a training in a Karate gym where they had Jiu Jitsu fighters as well. And it's always good, these drills. Where you show positions and perceive in all the will to learn, gain more technique and consequently increase your collection of finalizations.
I also like to see and learn, when my training buddies show how to adjust the position, because sometimes a different footprint show me, a slight difference may be the way to improve potentialization finalization.
It is important to be open-minded to see, hear, and understand. Study the positions, regardless if who shows is black belt or not. I realize that there are often fighters who do not pay attention when fighters with fewer graduates show positions, I believe they may miss a good chance to learn something good. And the main, at the time of training, try to apply the positions. Realize if it works as you imagine. Adjust strength, adapt it to your body, your flexibility.
The athlete being competitive or not should have the notion of training movements, risk new positions and even the chance to improve their weakest points, at this moment the "finalization" in a training friend passes into the background. Improving your defenses, and believe, leaves training highly productive in your technical development. For the athlete with even less technique is an excellent training to develop their skills, test and adjust their blows and mainly gain experience with harder training. But it's worth remembering especially the novice athlete who can not help but be mindful and conscientious when training with someone higher, to recognize the superiority of his opponent and at the same time "realize the opportunity" that athlete is giving by struggling looser, rather than feeling that he is already on the same level.
important thing is to train loose, fast, risking positions in these trainings without getting tying the fight. Every training is an opportunity to improve our skills and refine the technique.
Certain drills, as I said earlier, the focus need not be finalization. But the study, the perception of how the coup fits. And it fits into your game. When I look at fighter drills that are not interested in paying attention to positions demonstrated by friends and even visits, I believe that sometimes you lose opportunities to learn and gain new techniques. The mind has to be open to evolution, if you are not open-minded I do not see how to evolve.
With this training perception in mind all fighters at any level being competitive or not will have a technical development and all workouts can have good results. That is why my friends in all training, seminars, competitions or free practice train and observe with an open mind. Learning is constant, and can happen at any time.
Good training to all.
