One of the best aspects about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is its vast array of positions and techniques.
In fact, one could probably live several lifetimes and never master them all! The seemingly endless number of techniques and positional variations in BJJ is one of the things that makes it so interesting for students of all ages and abilities. With so much to learn, it’s difficult to become bored! However, particularly for new students, there are a few main positions that should be focused on, as these are the positions in which BJJ practitioners are likely to spend the majority of their time.
In addition, it’s important to learn the hierarchy of these positions, because in BJJ, some positions are stronger than others, and the sooner you’re able to recognize this, the sooner you’ll start progressing. So, familiarize yourself with the following common BJJ positions, ranked from strongest to weakest to get submissions, and you’ll close the skill gap between you and your training partners in no time!
