Mindsets: Internal Vs. External Assessment

The problem with assessing ourselves against our peers via competition and/or recognition via belt promotion, is it’s information guided by a critical mass at a particular point in time.

Strive to keep a standard independent of outside influence.

Using myself as an example, I was awarded a black belt four years ago but feel I’m 6 months to 2 years away from being a black belt for myself.

Lest you think the above is false humility, the difference is having a game built on black belt mechanics comprised of structure, simplicity, and efficiency.

It’s the difference between ART and thinking quality can be determined by whipping out our respective BJJ d*cks and measuring. ;o)
