Which BJJ techniques they should focus on?
People often ask me which BJJ techniques they should focus on? My answer is simple. The fundamentals. Legendary trainer John Danaher used to teach say Ask yourself one question. “IF YOU WERE IN THE FINALS OF THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, IN THE TOUGHEST MATCH OF YOUR LIFE, WHICH TECHNIQUES FROM YOUR REPERTOIRE WOULD YOU BE USING? In all honesty it would be a rather small set of trusted moves wedded together in mutual support to get the win. And those moves would be based off your fundamentals. Roger Gracie, considered by many to be the greatest BJJ competitor ever, used a very strong fundamentals game to win 10 IBJJF World BJJ Championships, double gold at the 2005 ADCC World Submission Championship and the Bellator MMA World title. The great Rickson Gracie, widely considered by his peer to be the greatest BJJ practitioner ever, also shares the same mindset. He would speak of your BJJ foundation is like the foundation of a house, if your foundation isn’t solid, the house fall down. Also compared it to the 4 legs of a chair as far as balance. If one of the legs falls off, the chair 9and you), fall down. Your fundamentals lead to more movements over time. Focus on THOSE BJJ techniques if you want to maximize the effectiveness of your training time. But your mind, body and spirit are also important. Here are 3 tips to help you in those areas:
Mind: Stay as calm as possible but remain alert
Body: Stay relaxed but ready for short bursts of near maximum effort
Spirit: Walking the line between never underestimating your opponent or yourself and never overestimating your opponent or yourself. Try to have a “no excuses” mentality and never give up.
That is your state in good Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
