Brazilian jiu jitsu students at SBG Kalispell each have their reasons for training. Most people love BJJ because it’s a great way to stay in shape and have fun. Some people train at a competitive level, and others love the challenge of the grappling arts. Other students, such as women and law enforcement officers, train jiu jitsu for self-defense. No matter your reason for stepping on the mats, setting the right goals will make your BJJ training a success!
Overall goals. What made you want to step on the mat for the very first time? What motivates you to show up to class? You will have days when you don’t feel like training, and you will look for excuses for skipping class. New students sometimes find it challenging to make this new activity a priority. Having a clear purpose in mind will push you through those tough days.
Short-term goals. What would you like to accomplish in the next 6 months or a year? Do you want to lose weight or compete in your first tournament? Are you working on a particular submission, or are you simply trying to get more time on the mat? If you’ve set a goal to lose weight, then training for a tournament can motivate you to stick to your diet and train consistently. Set short-term goals that serve as milestones for your overall goal.
Daily goals. No matter what your goals you set for yourself, training consistently will help you reach them. Make your BJJ training schedule one of your top priorities. Show up to class on time and consistently, and you will make significant gains in your jiu jitsu! Whatever your BJJ goals are, our programs at SBG Kalispell can help you get there!
