Train with different people!

Do not always train with the same person because if you train with different people you improve the ability to adapt.

Each person has its own characteristics that concern not only combat sports or martial art practiced but also physical characteristics related to weight and height, speed, power, etc.

Training with different people is the right way to evolve!

I know that going to the gym is normal to have one or two people you feel more in tune with and it’s a beautiful thing, but you have to try to change the partner you work with all the time.

Quiet is not a betrayal!

One of the big advantages of going to the gym is the ability to train with people with different physical characteristics:

  • taller person,
  • or lower,
  • stronger people,
  • or weaker,
  • more technical,
  • less technical,
  • Fat
  • Skinny
  • slower people,
  • or faster,
  • or more elastic,
  • or stiffer,
  • Etc.

While working with different people you will feel times of reactions, elasticity, timing of shots and trajectories of different shots.

This aspect is even more evident if you perform joint levers or fighting techniques where you will find that people have different joint excursions and to make the levers “enter” you have to increase the excursion that with others are shorter or slightly change the corners without counting the different stiffness.

This allows you to understand how the same technique needs to be adapted according to the opponent,so working with different people makes you develop that sensitivity that allows you to perfect the technique making it functional to all physicalities.

Train with athletes from other disciplines

Training with athletes who practice other disciplines and measure yourself intelligently is something very useful and allows you to discover the characteristics and qualities of other disciplines and also to enhance yours.

It is a very “open” way of living disciplines and that allows you to discover strengths and vulnerabilities.

This approach makes people much more aware and focuses them on working and training rather than making assumptions and spending evenings on social media discussing which martial art is most effective for personal defense and whether personal defense is not combat sports, or other nonsense that YouTube fakes and “sellers” now try to tell by often deceiving people and making fools in front of real experts.

Open Mat in the BJJ

Another way to get out of the usual approach and to train with different training partners is to go to open mats.

This approach is very useful because in addition to training with strangers you can also find approaches and methods that are not usually used in your gym.

Consider that there is always an influence and imprinting of your master.

Striking

In the case of combat sports in the context of striking it can be useful to establish good relationships with different gyms to make sparring outside the gym.

Also very interesting is the work with different sports or arts because you can find out how some arts emphasize more some shots and strategies as well as having different attack timings.

Don’t be surprised!

Train with different people! and if you have the chance and practice self-defense trained with those who have suffered a real aggression.

Stay Tuned! Train with different people!
