If your training partners are smart, they’re going to adapt and learn to counter what you’re doing, so even rolls with the same people are going to be different day to day. Such is the beauty of art and being involved in Jiu-Jitsu.
Conversely, there is a natural human tendency that if something works once, or worse still, has been our solid ‘go-to,’ it should always work! And if we can’t get it to work, we need to do it faster and harder!
Going with the idea in the post below, we can counter the above thinking in by being present enough in sparring to notice what is working and what isn’t in real-time, as understanding is process that is fluid to the degree we are awake as we roll.
