You know, we all have hard, hard days. For personal reasons, did not get the desired graduation or for losing the fight in the Championship, after so much preparation, regime to beat the weight. Sometimes everything seems to be a strong reason to be discouraged, to stop training, everything seems to be a justification for not touching the kimono. Sometimes getting the kimono can be difficult. Go training without motivation, and you know that others will be motivated, full of energy, and soon the desire to be quiet is greater today. I feel it sometimes. I can write very well on this subject. But I can also say that staying at home is worse. Face the "storm", go train. Take a deep breath, and speak to yourself, "I will train, do my best." We have to have "mental Jiu Jitsu" also always ready. Train without thinking of anything else. Try to do this exercise. Nothing else outside the dojo exists. Nothing else. Then give all the training you can, without thinking, attack or defend yourself, tie the fight if you wish, but train. Do not let anything get you away from training, because training and Jiu Jitsu will help you get out of sorrow, be it of any motivation, train. Take care of the body and mind, at the end of the training you will see that the energy comes back, the endorphins help. Maybe you'll discover a new path, a new strategy for your problem. And if for a reason that is immutable endorphine will help you withstand this pressure. I've been through these feelings, a fight even to get the kimono and go to class, or train with friends in their academies. But go! If you notice a discouraged friend, call him, call him to practice. Jiu Jitsu is family, it is friendship, one caring for the other, kneading on the mat or pushing him inside. Do not give up on yourself, do not stop training for any reason, believe it will only get worse. Take the kimono, take a deep breath. Repeat for yourself, I will train! Train without thinking about whether it will be finalized or not. More train, train hard until you're exhausted. The mind thanks and the body as well. Happy training is a lot better of course. But if sad training is a storm, then become the storm. Train, train hard. Design your mind in the fight. It will rest your mind, absorbed by extra mats problems. It is better to be training than at home, or in a bar, nothing better than the endorphin of training. Get over yourself. Overcome your fears and train. Become the storm itself.
