One of the most important things to learn and teach more effective, is to focus on concepts rather than on techniques. When I analyze Jiu Jitsu, I always focus on the commonalities between different techniques; what is universal. A certain technical improvement my help you in a specific situation. A universal concept,
applicable everywhere, will greatly improve your game all over.
In this video I will show and teach you the general outline I use to teach submissions both safe, effectively and easy to understand.
I use the straight footlock, rear naked choked and armbar as an example to illustrate my method.
The steps of my method are as follows:
- Opponent is relaxed: apply the submission purely by squeezing with your biceps.
>>> Arm strength beats the relaxed state
- Opponent engages his muscles: squeeze your biceps as tight as possible and engage your back muscles (lats).
>>> Arm strength follow by back engagement beat the engaged state.
- The opponent will use rotation to alleviate the pain / pressure: you rotate or counter-rotate to either finish the submission or stop the rotation of your opponent until he decides to rotate to the side you need.
>>> Biceps engagement + Back engagement + Rotation beat the engaged moving state
