More Conceptual Bjj


 Nice commentary... I agree about having a combination.. Sometimes you need a movement pass to get the reaction you need to set up a pressure pass. The overadjustments of your opponent to your movement gets you the opening to establish the pressure pass positioning. 


Howevever, having said that, I don't think that any particular foot positioning requires either pressure or movement. If the feet are high, I often like to grab 1 pant grip and hip into that leg like I'm passing foot on bicep spider guard. Once they react by bringing the other leg across, it sets up various leg smashing passes. 


As far as the foot height, I also pay attention to how close his knees are to his body. I think I tend to do more pressure passing when the knees are close and more movement passing when the knees are away from his body.
