I've been thinking about my jiu jitsu fundamentals class

and we just jump from one technique to the next. Is this how all classes are? I thought we would like pick a technique and hammer it out over and over again. But it's not like that at all.

Since no student is every really in a position to critique class, I'd just find another place to train. Best way to learn, imo, is to learn "chains" of moves: learn one technique and drill it til ya get it, then train a move that flows if the first one fails, and so on and so on...pretty soon you'll have a handful of moves that just flow naturally from any position will keep your opponent on defense.

lol thats what they do. a chain.
so maybe its more legit than what im thinking.


I just feel like it would be better to like do somehting like...ARM BAR WEEK or KIMURA WEEK. and hammer it out. but they shows us chains from positions.

so maybe im being picky and snootty.

i just want to learn the basics the best i can cause solid basics will make me a great grappler, i think so anyways

I find it better to teach multiple moves that fit together from the same position so I think the way you're training may work out well for you.

Be sure to drill the moves and visualize the techniques as much as you can to help you retain the info.

Also when you roll, force yourself to try the combos (chains) in action even if it means your partner escapes or ends up tapping you while you're trying. A match in which you try a few of your new techniques with little success is more more productive than simply trying to not get tapped out.

Good luck!

Awesome advice Jeff. Thats kind of like what my trainer is constantly telling me. He says who cares if I get tapped in sparring practice, pick a move that is troubleing me and make it my goal to pull it off. Whether its a transition or whatever If I pull it off than in my mind I won.

On the defensive side of that, too, if you get caught in a sub, break it down and figure out what to do next time to avoid/escape it.
