// ATTENTION JIU JITSU STUDENTS //

Just an fyi…will be reviewing the material we covered during Marcelo Garcia’s seminar on Sunday.

The seminar was over two hours long, so I’m hoping to use the next 2-3 Tuesday night nogi classes (7-8pm) to go over all the material.

Hope to see you there!

Is MMA the Adult Muay Thai Classes?

Warrior Way

Yesterday, I, along with several other Warrior Way members, traveled to Monroe to train with the one and only Marcelo Garcia. Already considered a “legend” in the sport (which usually translates to being old and semi-retired), I remember a time when Marcelo hit the grappling scene with the same intensity and focus as he showed in all his matches. Marcelo was known for his constant attacking and frenetic tempo as he pushed his opponents to a pace they were not used to. At first glance, Marcelo’s competition style seems rushed, chaotic, and possibly even reckless. After listening to him lay out his strategy and thinking, you realize that nothing could be further from the truth. What seems rushed is actually well thought out and calculated, what looks chaotic is actually planned and practiced, and what seems reckless is actually an effective game plan based on your strengths.

The actual technique doesn’t matter, he said. What does matter is how you use the time you have in a match. For me, this is what the heart of his message was. There is no time to “think or plan” once the match starts, you should already know what you’re doing. So go do it! According to Marcelo, once you put hands on your opponent, you should be prepared for every reaction your opponent makes based on your attack. One thing Marcelo said that has stuck with me and repeated in my head is that “you should make the match YOUR time and if you aren’t USING the time, you’re LOSING the time.”

I have been reflecting on that quote since the seminar and I see how this has an even bigger life lesson. There are people who simply act and don’t plan ahead of time. They hope for luck or the right opportunity to be successful, but what they lack is the planning. Then there are people who plan but never act. They think, rethink, and overthink a situation until they become too paralyzed with anticipation to act and the opportunity has passed them by.

Both of these approaches are obviously poor options for competition. Yet, many of us live our lives like this, frustrated by the lack of progress we see. Marcelo talked of preparing and imagining every possible scenario that can go right AND that can go wrong. By doing so, there are no surprises or frustrations. Instead, you already have a response or reaction to anything that you experience. This gives you the confidence, he says, to constantly move forward and reach your goal. Imagine getting to this point in our day-to-day lives. Moving with confidence in everything we do because we have already planned, prepared, and practiced everything we could possibly expect.. Remember, the time is yours.
