10 Jiu-Jitsu principles that can save your life


In the preface to “Breathe,” a book that brings the most powerful memories of Rickson Gracie, Jocko Willink, a former SEAL leader, author and entrepreneur, listed the main concepts of Jiu-Jitsu that he learned since his first training session with Gracie.

These principles of the art can be seen as true philosophies of life—and could improve your life and even the planet. Study them, read the book and think about this and other lessons you learned on the mats, which can be decisive in your personal and professional trajectory.

Whether you're a doctor, a salesperson or an elite sailor traveling to Iraq. Here's a list of the top ten:
1. You need to stay calm in bad situations.
2. You need to use the simplest and most efficient methods.
3. You need to train until you trust yourself to act intuitively, without thinking.
4. You need to act at the right time.
5. You cannot let your emotions guide your actions.
6. When you act, you must believe in what you are doing.
7. You need to be mentally strong.
8. You have to keep an open mind.
9. You have to keep learning new things while reinforcing the fundamentals.
10. You need to adapt your plans if circumstances change.
