Jiu-Jitsu Game Plan: The Learning Dillema of BJJ

2013 April GBSC (Web Use) 088

A Quick Insight into Developing a Jiu-Jitsu Game Plan

 

One of the main challenges we deal with in Jiu-Jitsu is the overwhelming amount of options. There are countless moves and countless combinations leading to a unlimited possibilities.

The abundance of possibilities of the most serious dilemmas a beginner and intermediate level student must deal with.

It creates a learning problem. Since there are alternatives to the one move you are trying to execute, when face with the first set of obstacles, we tend to give up what we are doing and try out something new.

The new is always appealing. It is tempting because it brings real possibilities without evident real obstacles.

But then, soon enough, the new thing we are trying is also faced with obstacles and resistance. If we give it up to once again try something new or different we are setting our selves for a shallow Jiu-Jitsu game to say the least.

A better approach is to stick to the techniques you like or feel more comfortable with. When you train, specially on our advanced Jiu-Jitsu classes, your goal should be to find ways to lead your training partners into your best moves instead of  going with flow and get lost dealing with something unknown.

If the unknown happens you must use your instinct. But if you do a good job keeping your training partner in a situation where your ‘A” game can be put to work, you will progress much faster towards developing your “Jiu-Jitsu Game Plan”.

Put in your mind you will stay with that one technique long enough to study consciously  the ways to deal with the first, second, third set of obstacles presented to you.

What you want is depth and confidence that can only be gained if you with focus and determination.

This approach take you much further.

See you on the mats ;)
