Ask yourself if you are working on your technique or looking for the tap? Here's a thought, on your next rolling session start off every time from the position you are worst at. Don't use superior strength or size to get out. If you get tapped, so be it.

Have Fun !!


Thanks, i appreciate the feedback. I have a wrestling background and have won a gold medal in my high school division (years ago). Upon joining my academy they asked if i had any previous experience and i told them. Is it possible my professor thinks i'm using my wrestling background and strength rather than technique like you said? Or is it possible based on telling him about my background that he's thinking that's what i'm solely relying on? As for using technique i've made a point of it. I've been sweeping people lots lately and my balance has increased tremendously. I am getting triangle chokes frequently by just technique and have made a point of it. I've also been using a lot of baiting moves which help me land my subs.
