The following is a guest post by a mysterious reddit user who goes by the name "crashlands". Not much is known of crashlands, some say they were born on a ledge of mount Olympus to the Sun god, some say they are a mariner from far yonder. What is known for certain is that they are a BJJ Brown belt with a nice sideline in good advice for new starters in BJJ.
Crashlands was kind enough to allow me to reproduce the advice they offered to a white belt in the reddit BJJ community. My feelings on the importance of this advice cannot be overstated.
5. Be patient with your improvement. BJJ progression is weird. You don't get a little better every day. You plateau, and then after a while, you see massive jumps in your game all at once. That's what it always felt like to me, anyway. Just enjoy the process and enjoy the good people you'll be with. It's more fun when you do it that way.
Thanks to crashlands for the sage advice.
Be sure to leave any comments or queries for crashlands in the comments and I'll send them via carrier pidgeon to mount Olympus.
