Love the idea of perfect mechanics and inescapable positions, and this is a necessary path for mastery, but what’s often left untold is if an advanced player knows what’s coming, they can use the energy of the move against you.
A recent example of the above is Ralph Gracie giving Budo Jake an armlock into a reversal @ 1:03-1:10. Perfect move, wrong time:
The application of this principle is to have at least a second or third route waiting once you see how a person defends, or might defend in a specific way.
