In my last class, both the instructors and some of the guys pointed out that I needed to use my strength and weight to my advantage when in side control and in north/south position.
They are right….
I have been so concerned with not letting my strength and size interfere with me learning techniques that I have not been using the proper leverage and strength required to carryout techniques properly.
So instead of ignoring my natural assets I will instead incorporate them with an eye on maintaining proper technique. I believe this makes sense. A flexible person uses their range of motion to avoid being tapped, to escape positions and to keep people in guard. A thin person is usually quicker and more agile and uses that as a tool in their defense. So why not use my strengths as well…..
