I may be investing in my training partners too well.....after tapping a lower belt to the same thing a couple of times in a row I will stop our free roll and go over what I am doing and how to avoid it. I have seen their game's get better because of it (At least against me) which has been great.....It is good but at times frustrating due to me having to then change my game every few months due to them figuring out what I am trying to do.
sorry for the necro.....im new here.
Awsome post!!! I have a lot of respect for you after reading it!!
Wouldn't competition be a great gauge for that? I believe that one of the greatest aspect of our mat sports is that there is no hiding...it all comes out on the mat. One on one...
I believe that competition would pretty much settle the inner conversation and inspire to continue the growth.
Best to you on the mat.
