The basis for learning a new position in jiu-jitsu is repetition, i.e. there's no point in training the position just once, to execute it "perfectly" you need to repeat and repeat and repeat...

Perhaps this is the most important thing, learning that there will be good days and bad days and that each one is important to evolve.

Living with pain.

Living with pain.

Pain is part of a jiu-jitsu practitioner's daily life. Either you live with the pain or you stop training.

In jiu-jitsu you have the chance to do the three slaps, but if you do that every time you're in a complicated situation you won't evolve as a person and as a fighter.

Knowing how to give up

Knowing how to give up

I've left this one last because it's a bit controversial. We always hear that giving up is not an option. But there are situations where it doesn't make sense to insist if it's going to harm you. In jiu-jitsu, when the blow is landed and could hurt you, what's the option? The three slaps, it's part of the game. That way you maintain your integrity so you can fight again. You give up in the moment so that you can continue training, learning and fighting.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum
