How Often Should You Train Jiu-Jitsu?

It is crucial to train in Jiu-Jitsu regularly. The frequency of training will depend on your goals. Typically it is expected that you should train at least three times a week to maintain a certain level of fitness and skill.

For example, if you are new to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu student and want to learn the basics, then you should train at least minimum twice a week. If you have been practicing for a while and your goal is to get better at sparring, then train three or four times per week.

It has been proven that training Jiu-Jitsu daily can improve your skills and help you learn new techniques much faster. However, if you cannot train in Jiu-Jitsu every day, it is still possible to get good results by staying consistent and training three times a week.

Do you want to train BJJ for Serious Competition?

When you want to train BJJ for serious competition, there are many things to consider. For example, what belt should you be at? What techniques should you learn? How often should you train? And how do you improve your weight?

The best time to train for the competition is when you feel fit and ready to take on a challenge. If you are a beginner, you should train more often than a veteran who trains three times a week or more. This is because you need to improve your skills faster than the veteran to compete at higher levels.

Does Frequent BJJ Training Have Negative Health Effects?

The answer depends on your current physical condition and how much time you spend training in other activities. If you already have an injury or trauma, it’s best to take a break from BJJ until the injury heals. In general, if you are training more than 20 hours per week outside of BJJ, it’s best to cut back on your BJJ training frequency or consult your coach for advice.
