Breakdown (Part I): Positions – The Top


I’m breaking down my style this week. It’s more of a goal at this point. I’m starting by trying to list out my favorites for each position. The game is a lot more complicated than the moves you do from each position. As Mark used to say, the jujitsu is what happens in the transition, not what you do once you get there. Some of these are just the terms I know, or small statements to remind me of a movement which doesn’t have a simple name.
