Solo Drills For Bjj. Drill! Drill! Drill!

So many students ask “Is there anything I can do outside of bjj class to improve my jiu-jitsu?”
Maybe they can’t make it to as many classes in a week that they would like or are just addicted and are looking for something to do outside of class.

There are some valuable drills you can do on a soft floor to:
1) train your body in the fundamental movements needed for Brazilian jiu-jitsu
2) exercise and strengthen the muscles specific to ground grappling
3) increase your joint mobility and flexibility
4) rolling and gymnastic types of exercises build our balance and equilibrium

* Tip : Instead of sitting around talking academy gossip when you show up early for class, bust out some reps of these drills to maximize your training time at bjj.
