so, currently my jiu jitsu (no gi) philosophy is to drown my opponent.
How do i do that? well, once i get on top, from each position (half guard, side control, twister side, mount, quarter guard, etc) i apply so much pressure or squeeze that my opponent loses three or four opportunities to breathe while i am in that position. and as i advance position, those breaths add up. if i am passing half guard to side control to mount, then by the time that i get to the mount, my opponent has lost twelve or so breaths.
at this point, they are so freaked about being able to get their air back that they are almost willing to give you an arm or a set up because it might give them one split second to come up to the surface and catch a big breath. and just when the moment occurs, i pounce. and catch the submission.
plus, even if i dont catch that sub and end up on bottom, i have gassed my opponent. they have way less energy to hold me down, so i will rise to the top again and start drowning them yet again. this may happen a couple of times, but i have faith that by stealing enough of my opponents breaths, i will win out.
the really important thing is having a good squeeze and great top pressure. i may suggest some twinkies or lessons with me if you are having problems with those
what is your overall philosophy?
i need to rethink my philosophy
everyone knows this, but how does it help your game
Does this work in competition against non-white belts??
As far as competition goes I think that's a great strategy. Pressure is a fundamental technique of jiu-jitsu.
However, when merely training with your teammates you aren't going to develope good technique in the long run if you are only trying to tire them out before you set up submissions. If you practice setting up submissions when your opponent is fresh your submissions will be forced to get better.
lol at not helping my teammates. lofl. rotflmfao. lol lol lol lol
my teammates are not going to get any better if i do not create competition scenarios for them in practice. this slow, light training bullshit helps no one. when they get in a tourney, they will have to escape with a guy going balls out. whats great about jiu jitz is that you can go balls out without hurting your opponnent: balls out. balls.
how do i help someone if i dont give my best?
good technique does not develop against unresisting or lightly resisting opponents. isnt the reason that all the TMAs suck because they never spar at 100 percent? now, you guys are basically saying the same shit. ironic that what you ran away from is what you want to create in bjj.
i dont get better when given space to move. i get better by learning how to create that space. i cant learn that by having people going half assed.
CUO--it almost seems like you're trolling now? Trying to prove a point?
im not trolling. i am sick of dudes coming in and not giving it their all and trying to crush me.
i like to punch them in the face
i go for 20-30 seconds until i gas..... then i get caught and tap...this method has never failed me...i am 100%....bet that fools!!!!!!!!
mines....to whinge and piss and moan about how I'm never rolling here ever again....and then to just come back and roll. ;)
lol at mteub
and the reason that royce probably says that is for safety issues. however, i have enough experience to know how to apply the squeeze and pressure without creating a risky injury situation for my opponent.,
how do you get your cardio better if you are not going 100 percent? i can roll for 2 hours straight at 50 percent. ask anyone at my gym. that does not make me better though. when i push myself to the limits every night, then i get better.
good technique does not develop against unresisting or lightly resisting opponents.
Who said anything about resisting? I just said you should develop your technique against an opponent who is fresh. If anything a fresh opponent will give better resistance than one you have worn out.
this slow, light training bullshit helps no one.
It seems to help Marcelo Garcia, Saulo Ribeiro, and a bunch of other guys I can think of. But I guess we should take your word for it, fat boy.
whats great about jiu jitz is that you can go balls out without hurting your opponnent: balls out. balls.
LMFAO!!!! You have got to be kidding me. The guys who go the hardest are always the ones with the most training injuries. That is a fact. How can anyone train and get better if they are constantly injured?
you have to learn how to go 100 percent safely. knock on wood, but the most serious injury i have had in the last six months was a fractured toe, and i am on the mats around six times a week.
squeeze has nothing to do with weight. eddie can take the life out of me and he is like 170 on a fat day. he just knows how and when to apply pressure. it is an artform.
"Who said anything about resisting? I just said you should develop your technique against an opponent who is fresh"
i roll with fresh guys. i just tire them out.
cool deal. if you are interested hit me up at checkuroil@Hotmail.com
"It seems to help Marcelo Garcia, Saulo Ribeiro, and a bunch of other guys I can think of."
Ya know these guys don't JUST roll light... they use light rolling as a training tool on a reg basis.
I'm curious,how much do you weigh?
I always find that the knee on belly takes the wind out of someone.
