Gustavo Dantas on Mental Preparation in Jiu-Jitsu



“Mental Preparation is highly underestimated in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Community”

According to The BJJ Mental Coach, Gustavo Dantas, often times athletes put so much effort on the technical, strategic and physical training, that they end up neglecting the most important factor, their mindset.


“If you are not able to transfer all your hard work from the academy to the tournament, it will be hard for you to the best that you can be and reach your full potential.”

In this great interview with Budovideos, Gustavo, who is a fourth degree Black Belt from Andre Pederneiras, shares his World Class experience, his rough beginning dealing with competition anxiety and how he overcame his fear of failure.
