BJJ Advice: Here’s How To Consistently Use Your Favorite Move

BJJ Advice: Here’s How To Consistently Use Your Favorite Move

If you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and stay consistent with it, it’s only a matter of time until you find your “favorite move”.
However, there are some things that you should take into consideration when using this technique, as it will make or break your success on the mats.

John Danaher explains one of these things – the function of the favorite move as a “base” for what you’ll do next:

Once you develop one solid attacking move it will force opponents to react to it in predictable ways. This will enable you to develop follow up moves that counter your opponent’s counters to that original move.
Thus does the original move function like the trunk of a tree and from that trunk grows multiple branches and from them more branches until a complete tree grows and emerges.

In this way, a few favorite moves can create great growth across your entire game.

So, after you develop these favorite techniques, Danaher advises you to add on to them:

Once you have a few favorites they will form the bedrock of your offense.

Add appropriate supplements to those moves in response to opponent’s resistance and soon you’ll have a complete offensive game that fits you as naturally as your favorite clothes.
