When you roll, you should have fun but you should always focus on something specifically.
For most people, that focus´is exclusively getting the submission.
for me, I tend to focus most of my rolls on different kinds of controls and pressures and studying them.
This doesn’t mean I have to go hard or just smash or completely control my opponent.
More often, I do a kind of flow where I can focus on feeling what’s happening with the movement and his reactions to my weight and blocks.
There are many different kinds of weight (and methods of control) that I use but in this roll, I focused mostly on what I call “dead weight.”
In my upcoming Pressure & Control Instructional, I#ll be covering them all extensively.
I also discuss some knee cut passing principles (sorry about the audio)
