In this article I want to delve into and discuss and look at what truly makes and defines a teacher in BJJ, martial arts or any other field of education.
This definition of a teacher is what I always aim to follow and give to my students when teaching my own Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes in Portsmouth. Hampshire, UK
What is a Teacher?
I’m Pleased to announce that I will be launching my own Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Martial Arts school in Portsmouth Hampshire UK, starting January 2017!
Every Tuesday and Friday night 7.30-9pm at
Milton Cross Academy Gymnasium
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is essentially the art of staying calm amidst chaos and adversity. It is this psychological fortitude and balance that is the true gift of the art, keeping your head, when others around you are losing theirs.
Adding to our Portsmouth martial arts classes… We now have two BJJ Martial Arts class each week in Portsmouth We will be learning the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu but with in depth attention to the important scientific details in order to suit all levels and abilities.
In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the results of training are hard won and happen over time not immediately, so people used to the modern culture of easy, effort free, instant gratification easily lose interest. BJJ is hard work and requires demanding training before progress can actually be made. This is one of the reason’s behind the high turnover rate in the sport, I’ve lost count of the number of people who have come and gone from the classes I have attended over the years. Probably enticed by watching MMA and deciding they want the ability they see displayed by the fighters then quickly give up when they are not immediately beating everyone in sight.
