The benefits of back taking in BJJ
The benefits of back taking in BJJ are endless. Most of all, the back is the perfect marriage of position and submission. Normally we think of position and submission as differentiated. One comes before the other. Most players tend to be either a positional player or a submission player, especially at the early belts. The back is the position that lets you be both at the same time. Not only is it the strongest position in the sport, no other position creates such a massive difference between your attacking potential from there and that of your opponent. In addition, you have access to the most high percentage attacks in the sport plus devastating strikes if this were a fight, all while your opponent has almost nothing. At the same time, no other submission comes close to rivaling the principle submission from this position, the rear naked choke aka Mata leão (lion killer). Thus the back represents the intersection of the two main elements of Jiu-Jitsu , position and submission. Make it your lifetime study to get there and finish from there, the day you make positive progress in this direction you will see the results. We preach this at Savarese BJJ (www.njbjj.com), it works.
