Using SMART Goals for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


So you’ve started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, taken a few classes maybe even got your first stripe. You’re attending classes and learning techniques. But do you know where you’re heading? Have you set yourself goals? And are these goals SMART goals?

So many students of BJJ attend classes regularly but have no specific goals. Some may have the goal of attaining the next colour belt, others want to win competitions. But are these SMART goals?

Use this evidence-based booklet to set achievable goals, increase your motivation, and give yourself every chance of success.

An Evidence-Based Approach to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for the Total Beginner


7 moves and 3 sequences to a strong start in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).

No padding or pretty pictures, just the essential information you need to improve your game.

Forget about the traditional way of learning BJJ, at least for the first 3 to 6 months.

This manual will help you build a strong foundation, a foundation that will help you enjoy your first 6 to 12 months of practicing BJJ. Rather than forgetting everything you learn and giving up as you lose motivation like 90 percent of all those who start BJJ.

Unlike other manuals and books teaching you BJJ, this manual is:

•Simple to read;
•Simple to remember;
•Simple to implement; and
•EFFECTIVE.

In addition, rather than it being based on expert opinion from a black belt with decades of experience, it is written by a beginner who actually implemented the information and measured its results scientifically, using evidence-based information from scientific journal articles.
