What is meant by comfort level when training Jiu-Jitsu?

This is the single most important thing that someone can learn.  People have to be comfortable in an uncomfortable position.  You can be really good at Jiu-Jitsu but until you are comfortable it doesn’t translate over into real life situations.  We teach the kids that once they can conquer the uncomfortableness then they can start logically thinking what can I do next.  It’s about not being afraid to be in a bad position because you know what to do.

Jiu-Jitsu’s History and Philosophy

The history and philosophy of Jiu-jitsu is a very colorful and unique history.  I’m a huge student of the history of philosophy of Jiu-jitsu. It doesn’t go back near as far as alot of other traditional arts do.  For what we consider written history we accredit it from Late 1800’s till now and then it goes on to who did what and where.
