Here are some videos and articles that I thought were interesting this week:
Which New Techniques Can You Learn the Fastest? @ Grapplearts.com
Stephan always has a practical mindset when it comes to training and this article was exactly what I needed as I’ve been flitting around from technique to technique. Focusing on one certain style and going for depth is a much better way to go when you’ve been training for a bit.
(If you don’t have a style, just pick one! If after a couple months it doesn’t feel right, you can branch off into something else.)
I’ve been having some technical trouble listening to podcasts lately, but I knew I couldn’t let that stop me from finding out about this episode since I’d heard that it was super helpful for BJJ. I’m now really glad for the transcript because it’s saved me from writing all of my notes!
There’s a lot of great nuggets of wisdom that can be applied to training, especially being more in tune with your internal self and practicing quality. There’s really a ton in there so highly recommend reading (and re-reading!) or listening at the fourhourworkweek.com/podcast

Basic, yes, but Draculino’s way of explaining is amazing here!
