Trust

If "adopt a white belt" is the most overheard statement at The Jungle MMA, then the most most unheard motto is "trust each other."

Like so many other things in life, the trust and bond between teammates has to be unbreakable.

If you want to be a good training partner, you have to be able to be trusted implicitly. However, you also need to trust someone even more than you Coach, Teammate, or the person you're sparring with at that moment. You have to trust in yourself. 

You have to be able to listen to your body and trust what you are thinking. We recently held our "endless no-gi rolls" and I was able to be a great partner for 8 rounds. But I knew that was my limit because I listened to my body and trusted my gut.

If you can trust yourself, you can become a fantastic teammate.

As in all sports, second guessing yourself can lead to bad things, so you have to be confident. Confident to preform the action being taught, and if need be, confident to ask for help!

“Learning. Growing. Achieving.”
