The Chewjitsu Podcast

Jul 18, 2022

On this episode of the podcast, Chewy and Eugene discuss why the idea of “just showing up” is wrong.

We chat about why showing up is important, but just showing up doesn’t necessarily translate to improvement and certainly not being good at BJJ. We also discuss one of the things that will waste the most time and get you mediocre results, what to do to be the best possible grappler you can be, a very important concept for technique development, why more training is not always better, the value of rest days, why Chewy recommends watching matches instead of watching instructionals for newer jiu-jitsu practitioners, the importance of Jiu-Jitsu competitions, the value of getting your mind completely off of Jiu-Jitsu for a short time, what to do if you have trouble focusing, and hen to change up your training intentions.
