Refinement | Nailing the Basics

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

In judo you spend a lot of time practising the basics. Repetition, repetition repetition. That’s what it takes to learn the language. I’ve been doing judo for a fair few years now and there’s still plenty to work-on with the basic movements and principles which will make me more effective at having conversations :-) .

Whether it’s the fitness industry or the business world, there is often a desire to discover the next big thing‘What should we add to make a big change and get ahead of the competition?’.

Sometimes the biggest bang for your buck is refinement in what you’re doing and focusing on becoming a master of the basics.

Below is some footage of my second session on Thursday, repeating the entry of a throw. My body really didn’t want to be there after a high-volume squat session in the afternoon, but my future opponents don’t care about that, and so neither shall I.

Whether it’s nutrition, lifting weights or whatever else; if you can perfect the basic principles you may find yourself more successful than if you chase the smoke and mirrors.
