What are you looking to accomplish in BJJ? Becoming good at guard passing or attaining a certain position? Maybe you want to get your stripes, or a certain belt. Maybe you want to lose weight... Discuss here: My goal was/is to lose weight, I'm down 50 already. The more BJJ I do the more a tournament interests me. So I've set a goal of competing for the first time when I hit the six month mark in my training - happens to fall during the week of my 26th birthday as well. So I'm studying up and drilling and watching videos and obviously going to class.
