One of the simplest and most rewarding ways to improve your game is to avoid taking rounds off. There's nothing wrong with taking rest rounds if you're truly exhausted, or nursing and injury, but there are lots of reasons to avoid it if at all possible. Finishing every round is a great way to diagnose your own game's strengths and weaknesses, boost confidence for rolling anywhere, help strengthen the mat culture at your own school, and give you a better sense of your rate of improvement. We all have a lot more in the tank than we realize, and I think if we are being honest with ourselves, we know that we usually have more to give when we're tired. Shout out to my buddy Trevor; you got me thinking about this.
