Jiu Jitsu and Principles

Hey everyone,

Something to consider as we approach our new week.  There are a lot of techniques in Jiu Jitsu.  In fact, there is any from 600-1000 techniques.  So many, that people start to rely on learning a new technique for each new problem they encounter.  Or when they want to improve, they want to learn a new technique to make their attacks better.  I think it’s fine to learn techniques, but most importantly there are underlying principles that govern over most positions and situations.  Knowing this Mindset, will not only solve many many more problems than a single technique, but will also make our timing better, and enable us to apply ourselves efficiently.

Next time you’re in a bad position, consider what the mindset should be.  The same thing with a control position, what is the mindset for this position.

Bad positions : Survive, then escape

Good positions : Control, exhaust, submit

Looking forward to an amazing week!
