Punctuality is Key to be Successful
There is a saying, “To be early is to be on time and to be on time is to be late.” Punctuality is one of the most important characteristics to have to be successful in life. It can show dedication, that you care about what you are doing, and in terms of Jiu Jitsu it can make you better, faster than your training partners. What I mean by that is at the beginning of class we work a drill as a warm up before we stretch for the impending class. If someone comes into class every day after the drill then they are missing out on the experience of using the technique shown; whereas, the rest of the class learned something new or improved on an existing technique they know. Give yourself a cushion, or more time than you would need to make sure you make it to class on time. To help with this prepare whatever you’ll need for class well in advance, so you don’t have to worry about rushing and possibly forgetting something. As I said before, learning this skill will help you prepare for anything in your life and be more successful in anything you do.
