Coaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

What Makes a Great Coach or Instructor?
What attributes does it take to become a great teacher of Jiu Jitsu?

BJJ is a tough sport to master so imagine how much harder it is to teach it. There is tremendous amount of responsibility and pressure to convey knowledge to your students who entrust you to share your knowledge. We often take for granted the stress this can bring upon our own instructors. I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from some amazing people and decided to write an article for BJJ WEEKLY about what makes the perfect coach. Hopefully it will give you some insight into what your instructor goes through and perhaps what you can do to help elevate your game.
