Welcome to Beauty and the Gi, the BJJ podcast about jiu-jitsu and life from the female perspective.

Aug 17, 2023

We are exploring how adopting the mindset of a beginner can unlock your potential and help you improve at every level, from white belt through black belt. You will even hear how we are using this mindset with the podcast recording process. This practice goes way beyond the mat.

Throughout the episode, we share insights from both the coach and student experience, along with practical ways to build confidence and skill while keeping a curious spirit. AJ reveals an eye-opening realization about the learning process!

Whether you're a white belt hungry to learn or an experienced practitioner seeking new ways to deepen your understanding, this episode promises to unlock the hidden potential within you. 

And remember….nobody wants to train with a “know it all.”


What You Will Learn

  • Why a beginner’s mindset is key to your development no matter where you are in your Jiu-Jitsu journey
  • How to remain curious as you progress in Jiu-Jitsu
  • Why Jen and AJ are both learning Judo
  • Why it’s good to try things you aren’t good at
  • How taking notes helps you get better (Seriously, are you still not taking notes?)
