While it’s recommended that people always seek the guidance of an instructor when training, it’s not a bad idea for practitioners to do their own research when practicing alone. BJJ is the best martial art for learning how to grapple but as we know, it can be very confusing especially when people are just starting out. Thanks to a nice little app, however, beginners now have something to look at whenever they need tips on how to perform certain techniques.
People take their smartphones everywhere so it’s no surprise that some tech-savvy black belts use them now as channels to communicate with other martial artists. According to the company that manages the entertainment hub Pocket Fruity, people take their phones everywhere nowadays, even to the most unexpected of places, so why not use it as a handy tool at the dojo?
The BJJ Roadmap App helps practitioners from the very beginning up until they’re ready for the advanced levels. The app skillfully navigates users through the different ground positions so that are given constant breakdowns when it comes to technique.
There’s a free and paid sections within the app
In the free section, people will get over 50 minutes of video tutorials about the basics of Jiu Jitsu. They will learn how to effectively execute closed and open guard techniques, defend effectively even in half guard, and sweep to the top when they’re at the bottom. Users will also find other techniques and strategies on how to accelerate their BJJ learning process as quickly as possible.
The paid section, on the other hand, gives users over 80 minutes of advanced Jiu Jitsu training videos. There are 5 additional lessons in the paid version that teaches users about side mounts, rear mounts, knee mounts, full mounts, and the highly-advanced turtle position.
What sets BJJ Roadmap App apart from other Jiu Jitsu-related apps is that apart from teaching techniques, it also covers technical questions such as why certain techniques work better than others and which body type works best for certain submission and position.
