Why we place such importance on consistency & focus in warming up
Every single class begins with the same fundamental ritual. We break into 2 lines, conduct our athletic warm ups, get feedback from the instructor, & visit while breaking a sweat. This ritual is extremely important. It puts our mind in the correct place, it builds a base of understanding our bodies, & prepares our bodies for the work we are about to do. Many BJJ schools skip this fundamental step, & many students simply refuse to invest any of their time in this. It is a critical mistake. The focus & consistency required to build
our athletic base is staggering. It is something that when viewed from the bottom of the mountain seems insurmountable. Put the focus on your moment, put your concentrated effort into the task at hand, & trust in the process & rewards that consistency will provide you.
