 Have you ever felt frustrated after a match because you knew you could have done better, but your nerves got the best of you? You kept telling yourself, “That was not me! I’m so much better than this!

You are not alone. This is a common feeling among athletes in all sports, including Jiu-Jitsu. Your job is to find the source of the issue and deal with it to achieve the success you desire.

You might be saying, “Gustavo, I don’t have a problem performing. My nerves don’t get the best of me!”

Here’s the thing: you don’t need to have a problem to work on your mental preparation. Just like Olympic athletes have sports psychologists and mental coaches, IBJJF Black Belt World Champions seek my help to become even better performers.

Do YOU want to perform even better? You don’t have to be a professional athlete to benefit from the knowledge shared through The BJJ Mental Coach.

" I would like to talk about the work of a great professional and now friend Gustavo Dantas  "The BJJ Mental Coach”. Since I started to implement his methods, I have noticed the difference before and after working with him, and feeling more efficient not only in Jiu-Jitsu, but in my personal and professional life as well. Certainly today I am a better person than I was yesterday, and tomorrow will be an even better person than today. He gave me the tools necessary for this evolution. I trust his work 100%, and I am sure that we still have a lot more room to grow and evolve together. Now I understand how having a Mental Coach can help you to perform even better in under pressure situations like Jiu-Jitsu. If you are interested in growing not only as an athlete but also as a human being, Gustavo Dantas this is the one."

"My partnership with the master Gustavo Dantas was a big step in my career, in addition to winning a great friend, he has helped me overcome my limits, to always be motivated and disciplined regardless of the results in competitions, and always keep in mind positive thoughts. Gustavo taught that in addition to the hard training, the mind also has to be in tune in will to succeed and grow, each day, one step at a time." 

Luan Carvalho
Black Belt Brazilian National Champion

"The BJJ Mental Coach showed me a world of "vision", where the mind can achieve higher levels that you can imagine to achieve your objectives. A good positive mindset, accompanied by a humility to recognize their own mistakes, and just for the fact that you’re attempting to change the mistakes, is already a personal victory, whether on and/or of the mat. I am far from being perfect in these two areas, but I'm happy to know that I am on the right route with the right mental coaching guidance to give me more clarity to overcome adversities in my everyday life and making wiser choices with even more awareness. I took many lessons that apply for sports and life."
