GB San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Challenges you to Become a Better Learner

As Martial Artists, we strive to get better each day. Grace Barra San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu instructors spend many hours every week coaching each student to break through their limitations to achieve higher levels of performance. Often the limits are physical and often they are mental and even emotional.

Regardless of where you are in your Jiu-Jitsu journey, understanding one of the most important principles on the learning process is of big help.

Here is a challenge to illustrate such concept:

84% of people reading this will not find the the mistake in this:


Are you on the 84% of people who could not find the mistake above or are you the 16% who actually saw the mistake? It does not really matter. Finding the mistake won’t make you a black belt or any better in Brazlian Jiu-Jitsu.

What will make you better is the understanding of why most people cannot find the mistake.

To explain it we will use a quote from Professor Flavio Almeida, Gracie Barra San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Head Instructor:

“I’m sure my ignorance comes from the things I think I know for sure.”

The reason why most of us cannot find the mistake is because we assume the problem is on the alphabet and not on the explanation of the challenge right above it.

Now that you know the mistake is on the description of the challenge, can you find the mistake? Not yet? No worries. Click here

In many ways, what is holding you back in Jiu-Jitsu is what you assume you already know. Come to Gracie Barra San Clemente with a white belt attitude. Make your cup empty and assume you don’t know anything. We guarantee it will help you tremendously.
