Design: Dynamics & Posture

Positions should be as dynamic as they are strong.

A problem I have with some of the traditional BJJ is the approaches favored controlling and smothering hips which in effect:

A) Put you directly over your opponents center of power.

B) Allows for little if any mobility as you’re committed to filling space.

Don’t get me wrong, there IS a time and place for these passes while in transition directly after takedowns, but they aren’t postures in my opinion because they aren’t safe nor mobile.

  1. It seemed like you were talking about dominant positions, so I was a little surprised when I reached the “passes” part of your post. Care to elaborate a little on what you mean?

  2. Bro you’re asking a general question about a general post!

    There is structural dominance in passing too, it’s just a matter of freeze framing moments in time and studying the structure of the scenario.
