Pressure is the name of the game in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. If you can utilize it more than others can, and if you can do it in an efficient way… You’re well on your way to making your training partners’ and your opponents’ lives miserable.
Be honest with us: do you sometimes tap from pressure? There’s no shame to it, especially if you’re (relatively) new to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or if your training partners are a lot heavier than you are.
Pressure-based submissions are so cool, right? You force your training partners to make mistakes “simply” because they’re uncomfortable… And you get to have some fun while doing it!
If you find yourself in top position during a roll, it’s extremely important that you keep applying pressure at all times… And that you control the balance.
