One thing I love about #jiujitsu is that the opportunity to try new things, as well as get creative with basics is never ending. I get so happy using the mats as a lab, learning from what works and what doesn’t (even though i get a lot more misses than hits!) I’ve missed a lot of mat time in the last week due to work, social obligations and a dastardly head cold and am spending a lot of time going over notes and techniques. Found this fun screengrab from when @dane_molina helped me work on that octopus guard to arm triangle experiment 🐙 That one didn’t pay off so well, but I’m getting some new ideas in my downtime 🤓and fired up to get back at it ASAP! If only I could stop sneezing 🤧 #bjj#bjjlife#bjjaddict#sick#jonesing#nogi#bjjwomen#jiujitsulifestyle

I love this as part of a cool down routine after training!
Let me know how this goes and find my latest video/post linked in my bio.
Why this? Many might ask.
Sports scientist, physiotherapist, doctors, personal trainers, chiropractors, biomechanist, kinesiologist, etc.
Let's clear the cloud. We can be "professionals" and have our papers to show for it but with lack of proper foundational understanding of the human body. Are we imparting the right information and knowledge to our clients?
