If you haven't chosen your jiu-jitsu resolution for the New Year, this one's for you. When you hear the term "self-defense," you typically think of punch protection, distance management and multiple attackers, but the reality is these only encompass 10% of self-defense.

To increase your efficiency and maximize your jiu-jitsu lifespan, do your best to follow the advice in this video, even if the culture of your academy is conducive to the efficient approach.
