    I tend to ask myself "what is it I really want to improve today", my training intensity tends to vary with what i'm looking for from the session, somedays i'm just looking to think my way through a few things so I really slow myslef down, sometimes i go full bore for two hours and get to the point where I can barely drag myself home.

    I take it seriously, but I have other priorities in my life. I can tell in each practice that I am getting better, especially when open mat comes around. The way I can tell I am progressing is that I quit taking "bait" for the same move, and get tapped by something else instead. For example, I used to get caught in triangles all the time. Now, I don't as much.

    I keep a journal everyday I train, I list 1 move from each position that I will work on for that day
    e.g.
    GUARD PASS = escrima pass
    TOP SUBMISSION = kimura
    GUARD = arm drag
    Standing = slip single

    I go fairly hard most workouts, not full but about 85% but mainly trying to fix wholes in my game.

    I just train to learn and get better every time I go to class. I'm in no rush, and I want to become skilled at EVERYTHING they teach, and soak it all up, then try and implement it in my game.

    I want a firm grasp of the basics, and the ability to execute the basics in my game, before I move on to anything that advanced.

    I'd like to be exceptional one day, but I know I have a very lengthy and difficult road ahead to achieve this goal.

    Ok I'll be the first of you all to say Im a lazy bum when I train. I do a half ass job on the warm ups and I leave exactly when class is over. I miss a lot of classes and I only train at most twice a week. When class comes around Im usually tired due to work. The only thing I do that I am consistent is keeping a journal and practicing about 15-20 min a day. I also love buying instructionals and practice on my basics 95% of the time. I admit Im lazy anyone else?

    There are plenty of days where I can be lazy during warm-ups.

    However once technique and rolling start, I'm 100% serious.

    I can honestly say I've never given any thought to my belt as I arrive, unless I left it on the counter. By the time I get to class, thinking of anything along the lines of "tonight I'm gonna work on this", or "I am a this..." are kind of overdo. I'll read some stuff while at work, or run over some things in my head, but once I show up, I usually just think: "Thank god, it's time for class..."

    My focus has changed several times. There was a period when I would train twice a day, 6 times a day, and there were periods that I would go to practice to try to vent the stress of life. Right now, I am starting to get back on the hardcore wagon.

    I think to myself, what kind of techniques do I need to improve on, and who can I roll with that will let me try those techniques? And then I also think to myself, who is going to kick my ass and help me improve my game?

    I havent trained in a long while but when I did I paid attention in class but during live I generally had a particular move I learned online or from an instructional I would try.
    Generally there were not typical BJJ moves so I would try it on BJJ to see how it worked.
    But other than that I would just flow with the go.

    I go until I can't go anymore, I go hard in class until I am dead tired. Regardless if it is Judo, kickboxing, or submissions.
