A little background about me I'm in my late 20s, I started taking BJJ training one year ago with no prior martial arts, athletic sport, or physical training background. After 14 months of training I'm officially a two stripe white belt.
I bought Bakari books more out curiosity to learn about another veteran grappler experience with their BJJ grappling journey. In the back of mind I wanted to know if I was on the right path and doing the right things with my BJJ training, and after reading his books its a YES!
I find many of his experiences humorous and relateable but the most that stood out to me at the moment because I am experiencing them right now are "FNG". Most new guys who join BJJ are not the 'average joe' like me with no experience. Many are either ex-wrestlers, ex-football players, current soldiers, or have prior martial art background and I made the mistake of going easy on them not knowing their background and bringing my B/C-game and end up fighting for my life, lol. Taking Bakari advice and not wanting to make the same mistake again and again, I treat all new guest like their already experienced grapplers(but obviously I don't go balls out on them either).
The politcs of BJJ, hitting plateaus, having to train outside the school to stay sharp, I'm seeing it now and I know its not just me and my own experience but its largely a part of the BJJ training culture. Bakari Akil validates my BJJ journey unfolding as it should.
Thanks for writing these books and sharing your thoughts and knowledge Bakari.
