Training: Minimizing Evaluative Need

For a lifestyle perspective, if you’re constantly trying to improve, and open and honest with yourself, things will be pretty cut and dry; with a minimal need for evaluation as it’s ingrained in day to day life.

By contrast, the problem I see in BJJ is practices they are often a sort of social hour, and though guys/gals often DO work hard in sparring very few think progressively about training.

So yes, the typical practitioner bound by academy culture IS getting something done, but their baselines of quality and quantity aren’t increasing over time, because while the effort is there, they are going through the motions intellectually.
