The Chewjitsu Podcast

Nov 7, 2022

On this episode, Chewy and Eugene discuss some ideas around a  quote from the author Thomas Sowell, “There are no solutions, just trade-offs,” and how this thinking applies to Jiu-Jitsu and also to life.

We discuss why you shouldn’t push yourself too hard when you first start training, using a reward system when starting a task, the importance of keeping Jiu-Jitsu fun early on, why life is a poorly designed game, trading your health for Jiu-Jitsu, training intensity vs. training longevity, and comparing yourself to others.
