Sometimes it’s the Simple Things….

Posted on Updated on

Recently, I have been analyzing a lot of videos to learn more intricate techniques. However, watching this clip of Marcelo Garcia reminded me that often simple techniques is all it takes to be dominant in BJJ.

At the 42 second mark of the video he captures his student in a rudimentary wrist lock. At 4 min and 58 seconds Garcia performs a basic step over guard pass. Both moves required timing, but I don’t think anyone would doubt that they could pull off the same technique with ease.
