So 2 weeks within the initial program launch we’ve covered the primary module of content plus the reviews are great that is nice.
But after watching the classes reactions into the technique and new situations being covered I understand we have been 208 percent on the right track..
Jiu-jitsu which (translated loosely in Japanese to - “Gentle Art”) can be a karate with far too many variations to gain access to on this little blog post in case we look more focused in the offshoot of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Previously is was generally broken into 3 sections
This classification worked fairly well at the same time when people must be on guard for your possible dojo raid or “ challenge match” however with times have changed and from now on with pretty much every other fighter/ martial artist implementing some BJJ technique to their system a more substantial divide is taking place
Sport vs Combative
All of the factors of jiu-jitsu have tournament plus a totally separate fight based aspect to them.
A competitor getting yourself ready for advanced level BJJ competition will almost certainly have a very different posture standing than someone who trains for mixed karate, and also a completely different approach than somoene who isn’t thinking about competition at all and more serious about effective self-defense.
If you are not addressing this fact inside your training and only concentrating on the most effective techniques for competition vs another skilled / trained opponent i then am here to determine your training is upside-down.
I have competed on every level from gi to no-gi and even mma but realize in such a case I’m the exception not the rule.
The majority of people train martial arts for better fitness also to become familiar with a solid skill which helps them defend themselves, maybe jumping into competition once in awhile for the experience.
The veracity in any martial art is most people involved are usually not what you would classify as professional competitors.
BJJ is canada and america is still very new and finding its exact place in the market so that we are in a situation where similar to 90 % in the training is based round the tournament scoring regulations when less that 10 percent from the total student bases focus is on said events..
To be effective in tournament competition you need to practice and fight a specific way not always conducive into a real fight / self-defense situation.
Yes virtually any trained kids martial arts athlete would devastate an unarmed aggressor with little issue 1 on 1, but that may be missing the point .
We aren’t writing about the Mendes brother, Saulo or Jean Jacques Machado those people are Master within the art are going to be fine in Speedos a Jean Jacket or maybe a Gi.
The people who really need the skill sets often not being taught in numerous BJJ schools is average student the non-competitor who arrived to learn to hande themselves if it ever stumbled on that.
When we have a massive batch of BJJ practitioner with never factored in the opportunity of someone punching / kicking them or even throwing the very common headlock attempt then something is wrong because.
A lot of people don’t train BJJ hence they won’t react how your skilled training partners will when it really ever got to you being required to defend yourself.
Even something “Wrong/Illegal” from the competitors text book can be a huge problem to suit your needs if you’ve never taken its possibility into consideration.
