    Damn dude, you're long winded. But very well written. Lot of good stuff that anyone doing any kind of grappling would do well to think about. It actually reminded me that I've been drifting away from using Pressure as I worked on other things and I need to get back into using the shoulder of doom when I'm on top.

    Sorry for the long winded-ness. There is alot to digest there... however, it was incomplete if I left anything out.

    Regardless, glad you found something in there that is helpful for getting your game on track.

    Thanks for that write up, I quite liked it and am adding it to information I'm collecting for some research papers I will expand upon when I have time (flow states and Western-mind set martial practice).

    This, I think, will help me as I go into training this week to be more aware of what I'm doing, what I go for, and why.
    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    Fantastic essay, a very interesting read.

    May I ask a question?

    As a beginner is it worth knowing that such revelations exist? By this I'm asking: is there any way to make my learning more efficient, lessons stick better, things to look out for... etc. Or maybe a revelation is too personal a thing to hope to speed up?

    Thanks

    Many thanks for your thoughtful article, Turtle. Very useful for someone such as myself who is still learning how to learn BJJ.

    Turtle, that was very informative. Learning more about how we develop conditioned reflexes is very helpful. So far, my game has been mostly strength based. I need to learn how to relax, then I won't get so many self inflicted pulls and strains.

    Thread moved to Basic Technique forum to allow more beginner's to comment, and to keep my eyelid from twitching when they do this in the advanced forum.
