Gauging Balance

Sweeping structures are used to gauge balance more than to sweep.

In Jiu-Jitsu terms sweeps happen when your partner is already off balance via overcommitment.

    This truly is a beautiful statement and just flooded my mind with ideas. Absolutely true stop looking at it as a sweeping position or a “move” but rather as a pivot point (posture) to feel their energy in order to direct it into a sweep/reversal, submission or sit out.

    1. Helping inspire a flood is the highest compliment. Thanks man. When you have time make sure to grab a notebook and pen and write down what you can if you haven’t already.

      I guess you could call this idea taking the time to connect first. Applies to BJJ as well as dating. lol
