In training for Jiu-Jitsu, you have a few options that allow you to experience the benefits of training in all aspects of your life. You have the choice of attending either group classes, private training, or both.
Both group classes and private training sessions provide a sense of structure to your Jiu-Jitsu training. However, there are certain benefits you’ll find with group classes that vary from the type of training and benefits you’ll get with private training sessions.
Take a closer look at both options to learn more about which might be best for you:
Benefits of Group Classes
Training in a group atmosphere exposes you to a variety of training and fitness levels. You’ll be able to identify your strengths and weaknesses and then work on both with several different training partners. Sometimes, you may know more than your opponent and vice versa. Both types of match-ups create unique learning opportunities.
When you show up for class, keep your personal goals in mind. Always look for ways that you can build upon your skills while training with others, as well as those opportunities to share what you have learned with others.
Benefits of Private Training
It’s true that private training is more expensive than group classes. However, if you decide to go this route, keep in mind the value of one-on-one training time with an instructor.
Private training sessions are valuable because the entire session is designed around you, your skills, and your fitness. To get the most out of your time, make sure that you chat with your instructor about your goals. Be specific about what you hope to gain from your private training sessions. Have you hit a plateau and are struggling to get past it? Is there a specific skill or technique that you just haven’t picked up or been able to use?
Even a few private sessions with an instructor might be what you need to get past a plateau or achieve a goal that you’ve been working toward for several months. It’s really up to you to take a close look at your training and your goals and then figure out the best way that you can find success.
