BJJ Submission holds must be drilled to perfection
BJJ Submission holds must be drilled to perfection. here is the thing about submission holds – they either work completely or they don’t work at all. In addition, absolutely no one remembers a a submission hold that “almost” worked. In the heat of high level competition against athletes aren’t afraid to take some pain, the only only ones that work are those that are perfect in their application. As far as the outcome goes, a submission hold that was 98% perfect is as useless as one that was 5% perfect. Only the ones that are 100% perfect count in training, BJJ sport jiu-jitsu and MMA or even a street fight. As such, if you are to take the long and difficult path towards submission mastery you MUST seek mechanical perfect in your holds. It’s not easy to attain against determined and skilled opponents, but when you get there you will have a truly impressive weapon at your disposal. Here at Savarese BJJ Academy (www.njbjj.com), we preach the “Outliers” theory after the book by Malcolm Gladwell which says it takes 10,000 repetitions of anything to master it. Look at the pressure generated by this armlock from Kayla Zeppetelli. Pressure and mechanical tightness like this must be your goal.
