A Deeper Knowledge Of The Simple Techniques Gives More Effective Jiu-Jitsu.
Developing a deep knowledge and skill of a smaller number of basic BJJ moves and their underlying concepts is far more effective than constantly chasing new techniques but not really having a deep understanding of their usage nor developing them into a reliable skill of unconscious reflex.
Early on in learning Jiu-Jitsu, It’s easy to get caught up in the constant search for newer and crazier techniques and your approach to Jiu-Jitsu often becomes an arms race to find something new your opponent hasn’t seen before.
