#48 | Proving Grounds pt. 2

I talk to my friends Jack, Alfred, Trevor and Drew about our preparation for a jiu jitsu tournament, proving grounds. Each of us came to the tournament with a unique mindset and level of ability. We talk on learning & focus strategies, common pitfalls while learning jiu jitsu, and the parallels in life. 

Tournaments or competition, allows us to examine our progress with social and talent feedback. Wether it's competing with fellow archers, jiu jitsu players, runners, snowboarders, etc.. we have to confront our abilities and our possibilities inspiring a moment to rise to te occasion.
