Newtonian BJJ

Brazilian Jiu jitsu is newtonian.

In this context, the term newtonian means that the force being applied is met with an equal amount of force in return.

Jiu jitsu can be seen as newtonian because the better you are at Jiu jitsu, the harder it gets.

The more you understand about grappling, the harder it becomes to improve. You have to struggle for every fraction of improvement as the learning curve becomes steeper. You have to battle for even a single inch against more and more technical opponents. The better you get, the harder it gets.

This, in my opinion, is what appeals to so many who come to embrace the never ending path of learning that is a martial art.

The better you get, the more difficult BJJ becomes.

Learn to love what is difficult.

Thanks for reading.
