Be a Safe Training Partner!

It is our responsibility to look out for one another on the mat and to truly pay attention to each other’s safety. In a Jiu-Jitsu Academy, there are people from every demographic and all walks of life. This melting pot of individuals is one of the things that makes our academy so special. But it can also be what makes training dangerous. In order to have a harmonious training environment, we must understand each other’s capabilities. As time goes on, potential competitors will want to engage in more competitive training, while others may be doing Jiu-Jitsu for different reasons. The coexistence of these different practitioners is 100% possible and actually necessary as both will draw experience and knowledge from the other. But in order for it to be a true success, we must all pay attention to everyone’s safety and health.

Here are 3 tips:

  1. Focus on executing the techniques slowly at first and then increasing speed slightly, as

you get a rhythm with your partner. Although...speed is not the goal; fluidity is.

  1. If you are much bigger than your training partner, take extra precaution when using

your weight or strength.

  1. If you have previous training in wrestling or some other physical and aggressive

activity...Remember, you may have a partner who is just beginning in the sport and are excited to learn and train with you.  We do not want to ruin anyone’s experience by not considering our partners current capabilities.
