How this guy learned martial arts by taking a course online
I try to watch at least as much as I train. Some weeks I can train two nights a week, some four. Ideally, I probably would never stop. On a typical day I would sign onto
the Gracie University website, study usually three or four lessons, and really try to pay attention and grasp whats going on, and then leave from here to go meet
my training partner. We would practice those moves,
and if we have any difficulty all we’d have to do is pull it right back up, check it out, try it again until it feels right. And then just, repeat, repeat, repeat. The thing about learning online is that it takes a lot of dedication, it takes a lot of discipline, and you pretty much have to be your own coach, and you have to
find a partner who is just as willing to put in the time and effort as you are. Ju-jitsu has changed me in a lot of ways. I feel way more confident. I’m way more fit. Its something that I’ve wanted to learn for so long and what I found personally different about ju-jitsu is that it gives an average person even a smaller person, a chance to defend themselves against somebody larger, stronger, and more athletic. My decision to learn online
was not so much a choice made as it was a lack of options. There wasn’t anything even remotely close to me.
The closest place that I knew of was in Atlanta, GA, and that’s a four hour drive one way. So, if there was no Gracie University online I’d probably be out of luck. My own personal experiences
of learning ju-jitsu on the internet, if you want it, if the desire is there, I think you could probably learn just about anything you put your mind to. Anything that somebody has enough passion to put a course for you to learn online, you can learn it.
