Have your ever rolled with someone outside of a traditional Brazilian Jiu-jitsu background?
Maybe someone who has done MMA, Sambo, Wrestling, Judo, etc?
If so then you know that they grapple a little different
A different sort of cadence or style of rolling.
I found this out during my White-Purple Belt days where I began to be introduced to MMA training and would roll with people who only learned grappling through MMA.
In many cases I would get caught with submissions even through my knowledge of grappling and Brazilian Jiujitsu was superior.
Because their style and rhythm of grappling was different than mine, I had to adjust. Because where BJJ players typically fight more for position, they would just go crazy for submissions.
And I believe this is partly due to the fact that when you use grappling in and MMA situation. You have to have a sense of urgency with your techniques.
In today’s video I discuss this idea in response to our friends question who is struggling with a situation at an open mat where he feels a bit taken back by the people inside the gym.
If you’re ever grappling with someone outside of a traditional BJJ gym, then I hope this video is useful for you!
