The great thing about this approach to training is that everyone already knows how to do it.
We all know what it is like to make our own choices, and how that makes us stronger and more capable, even when we make mistakes. We all know how to “just do it.” You are created this way. Your brain is programmed to learn through play.
There is no right way. There is no perfect way. There are many ways. There are no basic or fundamental techniques that everyone has to know in Jiu Jitsu. Each person is different. There are techniques that work and make sense for you as an individual. Everyone is different and practices Jiu Jitsu in their own unique and different way.
By taking the time to find your way, you will find that you can build any skill you choose.
“PLAY IS OUR BRAIN’S FAVORITE WAY OF LEARNING.”
Your training at Zenyo is based on a revolutionary approach that eschews the traditional “learning process.”
Our training assumes a starting point that you are a marvel, a creation of the most complex system in the known universe — your nervous system. You do not need to be shown how to do things, how to move, how to adapt to the environment.
You have a remarkable system already built inside of you. This system is called self-organization.
Self-organization is the ability to spontaneously adapt to the movements, tasks, or goals demanded in any particular situation. When you train in a manner that prioritizes self-organization, you are able bring out your own remarkable ability and let it shine.
Learning is not linear and over-thinking leads to degraded performance. Good movement occurs beyond conscious control. If you then try to think and replicate the action, you will find that it is gone, or even worse. Thinking too much about “how” to move has been proven through numerous studies to create confusion and less than ideal outcomes.
Your goal should be to execute your task without excess focus on step-by-step processes, to self-organize. There are no “right” or “wrong” ways — no ideal movements or methods. There is no perfect technique. There are many ways to be effective. Don’t limit what is possible for you. You’ll be surprised by what can happen if you let it.
