    I assume that you're only talking about BJJ class. I'd be surprised to hear that judo people don't work transitions from kneeling to standing in order to improve position for going back to the ground.

    Actually, we DON'T

    probably because in shiai if one person stands up while on the ground then the players are reset. I'll scramble sometimes to get better position where I'll bring my knees up, but we never stand back up once we're on the ground.

    Start sitting facing a kneeling opponent. This will cause you to use your legs more for fencing and hooking. Just remember your hands are faster, so use them and have your legs catch up when he goes to pass.

    Constantly attack his balance with your hooks. Create a push pull with hands and feet.

    Experiment.

    Silly ruleset. Still, this should be totally kosher--and effective--in BJJ.

    Yes, I am talking essentially about closed guard, which is even more useful in competition Judo than in BJJ. I'll work on other weird stuff when I get the hang of that.
    Well, thank you very much.

    Ne waza randori last night. Not sure entirely how I'm going to do something, JKD's techniue that I was reading right before I left pops into my mind, so I go for it, albeit not entirely smooth. It friggin works, and the sensei called matte before he could get out of my guard! Varrot-time! :icon_mrgr

    Jesus Christ, that the first intelligent thing I've ever said about BJJ and I thought it was really stupid when I wrote it.
