Do you like curriculums for BJJ? I personally have a love hate relationship with curriculums in relation to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
In some ways a BJJ curriculum can be incredibly as a guide to lead the way and to ensure that the bases are covered and maintaining a standard.
The negatives that I associate with a curriculum if forced on the students to rigidly is the fact that the focus then moves from exploration, discovery and the expression of the art and can move towards more memorization.
I also believe that one of the best benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the ability to learn the love of practice and the grind. To do something, not because of what you will eventually achieve. But instead because you just enjoy doing it. And finding reasons why you love the day to day training. This lesson that I learned from Wrestling and BJJ has helped me in so many areas of my life. Because I’ve learned to grind out through difficult situations and learned to enjoy the struggle and challenge of tough situations.
What are your opinions on BJJ curriculums? Do you like them or dislike them? Do you think a hard curriculum should be imposed or should students be able to go off in different directions?
Thanks for watching.
