By expand my game I mean become good at more and more positions and submissions. Focusing on something that is fairly easy for you tends to stagnate your progress unless you want to be a one trick pony.
ah I see.
Do you find it better to pinpoint and work on certain elements of your game for long periods of time, or consistently work on all your grappling strategies together?
for example, would you find it more efficient to work say halfguard almost exclusivley for 2 months or to work on everything together?
During live rolls, I been working deep half, but my instructor teaches 4-6 main techniques a day and repeats the curricullum everyday for that week. So even though I'm only using one main guard when grappling, I'm still learning other positions etc.
It depends on your training partners and the way they roll. If you have a very SBG style school with lots of Isolation and I-method then you can focus on one position for a long time during isolation training but still open your game up when you free role.
Frankly 4-6 moves in one class is twice as many as you should be focusing on. (unless they are small variations to the same move)
A lot of this depends on where you are in your Jiu Jitsu career and what type of game you play.
The weekly techniques focus on one type of position, adding on to the original move, answers to counters and resistance. Usually it starts with 3 techniques and by the end of the week he'll throw in one or two more variations to it.
Count me in! I'll keep in touch and find a time that works for you. Thanks again for the invite.
