GB Learning : Training Sequence

This week on GB Blog we are going to take a look at the idea of technique sequences. Jiu-jitsu has a hierarchy of positions and your task is to control and progress from lesser to more dominant positions leading to submission.

One top jiu-jitsu instructor said that the perfect jiu-jitsu match was 9 points:
2 points for the takedown
3 points for passing the guard
4 points for mount or rear mount
Match ending submission!

If we see this as a sequence of positions and advancing to the submission finish, we have a more clear understanding of all of the tools and techniques we need to overcome an opponent in a sequence.

Here is how one of these key sequences might look:

1) Closing the distance to clinch

2) Standing clinch to takedown

3) Passing the guard

4) Attacking from mount

5) Take the back to choke
