In Monkey-Jits, my BJJ program, our tag line is, Flow as the Way! What does that mean, and why should you even care?
What I have noticed over the years coaching BJJ — is that when a student has an amazing experience rolling, and they have their best performance — what they unknowingly describe about that experience, is the Flow State. The flow state, is an embodied state that you enter, in moments of peak performance. People typically describe how time seems to slow down in the role. The self vanishes, past/future disappear, and only the present moment exists. A persons actions and awareness merge, making them feel fully connected to every move.
