As a beginner you will have to learn a lot. But before you really start learning Jiu Jitsu there are some things that are essential and you must perfectly master!
I will write a series of articles entitled “The BJJ Basics”, all the essentials that every beginner must know. I guess you already know the history of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (otherwise I invite you to read my article on the subject) and you also know the rules of our sport that I present in this article.
Once you will master these five points perfectly, you can start calmly to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
It’s important to realize here that without these basics, you can’t mastered all the techniques you learn in the future or mastered 50% of these technics. This is a difficult stage because you will want immediately learn some submission techniques and guard pass. But you can believe me, without these bases you can’t learn correctly.
