Slow Your Roll – Annapolis Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Slow Rolling is an ideal method to achieve proficiency in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

You don’t need to be a black belt to use this method of training. It is by far the fastest way to perfect your transitions, setups, and finishing sequences. The problem is no one teaches how to do this method.

One of the main benefits of this style of training is that everyone can roll together regardless of size, weight, strength, or any other physical attribute that you want to throw out there. Slow rolling makes it safe for beginners to get into the flow of rolling while maintaining every ones safety. Kids, women, and large men can all train together safely when you are slow rolling.

Another benefit of slow rolling is that it is an amazing way to warm up. You don’t have to go hard from the first minute you step on the mat. You also don’t have to bore your entire class with the same calisthenics day in and day out.

Another benefit of slow rolling is that when you are injured, you can still keep your skills sharp safely. If you have ultra competitive people in your gym who like to go like it’s the Olympic gold medal match every time, number one stay away from them, number two learn to use slow rolling and you will avoid a lot of injuries, while still being able to train even if you are injured.

Slow rolling is the perfect time to experiment. In the middle of a competitive match is not the best time to try that new move you just learned. Slow rolling takes the fear out of the equation and allows you to experiment with different moves and transitions. You will feel when the timing is right. Don’t get stuck in the “I never want to lose” mental state. If you only worry about wins and losses you will only try to do what you’re good at on the mat. You will never experiment with new things and broaden your game.

Slow rolling allows you to drill specific situations without having to fight to get there. This is a great benefit. Don’t leave it to chance that you might end up in the area you want to work on.

Ultra competitive rolling has its time and place. I do not want to say that you should never let it all hang out. However, slow rolling should make up the majority of your training.
