The number three most common mental mistake Jiu-Jitsu competitors make is “Fear of making costly mistakes”. If you have competed before, most likely you have made this mistake and you are NOT alone!

Today you are going to hear about the best way to avoid this very common mental mistake that we all go through at some point in our Jiu-jitsu competition journey.

Enjoy!
