How to Deal With Anxiety Returning to BJJ After Injury

Jiu Jitsu Junction Podcast by Andre Hansel

Episode notes

In this episode of the Jiu Jitsu Junction podcast Andre and Chase go over how to deal with the anxiety involved with returning to BJJ after an injury takes you off the mats. They go over what anxiety is and why it is a natural reaction to have when you are returning to the mats for BJJ after time off, especially when coming back from an injury. They share their personal experiences with coming back from injuries and share ideas and tips to keep in mind to make your return back to jiu-jitsu as seamless as possible. Items discussed are how to pick training partners more conscientiously upon returning to BJJ, when to start rolling again (and adjustments you should make), and how training after an injury can change your game (often for the better).
