Re-visiting ...

When you first visit a new place - you pretty quickly get the rough idea - the general layout … but generally, we wouldn’t, after only one brief visit, deem ourselves an expert on that place. To claim expertise, would require numerous visits, a willingness to ‘delve deep’ and walk the back-alleyways, so to speak.

Well, the same goes for BJJ technique. When we are introduced to a technique or concept for the first time, we can hardly call ourselves ‘expert’. That takes numerous ‘learnings’ - years perhaps, of practising that technique and seeing how it dovetails into and connects with other techniques. A very good, and simple habit to develop, is the habit of ‘re-visiting’ those techniques we think we already know well. Each re-visitation will unearth some new nuance. rev-visit often … JBW
