BJJ is simply impossible without training partners. The better your training partners, the better your training will be and the faster you will develop. BJJ is a very intense interpersonal struggle for dominance, carried out within a structure that prevents people from actually harming each other. The “tap” system to indicate defeat prevents people from actually hurting each other.
It is more or less like chess, I make a move and then “you” again. We continue until we have the other checkmate and he / she has nowhere to go.
Okay you got me, I tap and we start again. Instead of a fight, it becomes a game.
Because it is so important in Jiu Jitsu that your training partners keep getting better, you see that everyone is always busy helping each other to improve their techniques.
In addition, your training partners help with basic things like keeping you motivated and responsible (“Hey, where were you Tuesday? You’re always there!”),
But that also helps you to improve and keep moving.
