I am nothing without my team

One thing that some people sometimes take for granted is how important having a good team is. These are the people you see the most assuming you train seriously. When they are killers, you have no choice but to get better.

Whether or not you are the leader or a member of the team, I believe it is important to try and support each other in and out of the gym. In reality, the BJJ team resembles a small military unit very well: When one person is discouraged or causes a problem, the morale of the whole team goes down.

So the next time you are in the gym, remember to look at all the other members of the team as an extension of yourself! The team is only as strong as the weakest link, so make sure that link is strong!

Now a video showing what "unstoppable pressure" really means.

Knowing that you have reliable team mates backing you up can make a world of difference.
