Progress Is Slow In Your Comfort Zone


I am going to be reprinting some old classic entries from my previous blog called The Angry Grappler. It will chronicle the evolution in my understanding of martial arts.

In the game of BJJ you have areas that you feel more comfortable in and tend to draw the game into, if you are smart anyway. But there are some areas I am not as strong in and would like to develop more by the summer. More of my wrestling and top game. But as I work on these games more as my B game, there is always new things coming out of my A game that I also want to work on. More bottom sweeps, more ways to get to the back. This makes me put a hold on my B game.

I'm sure people get this to, where there is an area they want to work on but its so tempting to stay in the area you already know. But progress is slower there.
