Principles: Distraction

This principle is linked to the post below in that the more I can distract a training partner with perceived threats of submission and/or pressure from positional advancement, the more they’re going to be looking to defend rather than escape.

Giving away a bit of a secret here, but I always try to bombard the neck as it’s the Jiu-Jitsu equivalent of punching some one in the face (while we’re on the subject, study chokes and corresponding MMA strikes to add momentum to initial choke bites).

Call this ‘strike to bite,’ but as always, use discretion and imagine what’s it’s like to be on the receiving end of some one who’s more skilled and a bully.

Be compassionate and smart in equal measure.
