Do I have to stop during holidays with my training? If you need it, then YES. This rest period will give your body the time to repair its various systems: muscles, joints and nervous systems. Take advantage of this period to make time for yourself and relieve the stress accumulated over the year. Use the time to re-evaluate your personal goals – yes also in Jiu-Jitsu! 

This time is offering you good food and great rest. You can also use the time to do some more “soft” exercises like Yoga and Stretching, but don’t forget about your mind and spirit.

My Quote for 2020

"A warrior is always aware of what is worth fighting for. He does not go into combat over things that do not concern him, and he never wastes his time over provocations. A warrior accepts defeat. He does not treat it as a matter of indifference, nor does he attempt to transform it into a victory. The pain of defeat is bitter to him; he suffers at indifference and becomes desperate with loneliness. After all this has passed, he licks his wounds and begins everything anew. A warrior knows that war is made of many battles; he goes on. Tragedies do happen. We can discover the reason, blame others, imagine how different our lives would be had they not occurred. But none of that is important: they did occur, and so be it. From there onward we must put aside the fear that they awoke in us and begin to rebuild." --Paulo Coelho, Warrior of the Light |
