Epi 171 The Se7en Deadly Sins and BJJ

Could one of the seven deadly sins be holding you back in BJJ? What we can learn from them to avoid problems on the mat. Today we break down how the deadly sins can be holding you back. The sins are; Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed, and Sloth.

We talk about:

  • Pride, and the difference in being confident and having too much pride
  • What is feeling too proud of a tournament or belt promotion
  • Being envious of training partners or coaches
  • Getting mad while training
  • How to tell when you have a passion for something or a lust
  • How being greedy with your knowledge and time on the mat will hurt you
  • How laziness even when you show up can greatly slow your progress
  • The mistake of only doing the fun parts of BJJ
