    To add: Using strength isn't bad; it's just another tool. It becomes a problem when it replaces technique or reinforces bad technique.

    Example: I rarely get armbarred and almost never by less than a purple. There are two reasons, 1) I have a great armbar defense, I stack properly and block their butt and more important earlier in my training 2) I still have massive reserve strength.

    As a result I have the bad habit of baiting armbars (and triangles) too often. This will get me in trouble eventually. I know that but while rolling I still do it.

    That's a matter of semantics. The two descriptions amount to the same thing

    I'll see about the photos.

    It's not something that can really be shown visually so much as felt.
