The Chewjitsu Podcast

Mar 20, 2023

On this episode, Chewy and Eugene discuss some ideas on how to fail properly in grappling.

We chat about whether you should promote a student to the next belt rank if they demonstrate a "bad attitude," why you need to experience loss and failure, how to lose properly, how the fear of losing can keep you from trying new things, letting go of the attachment to winning, why you should avoid trying to keep up with younger grapplers as an older grappler, why failure is the currency for success, learning information ahead of time vs. in the nick of time, advice on losing for younger/newer grapplers and older/seasoned grapplers, and the importance of play for learning.
