The End Game

I am going to be reprinting some old classic entries from my previous blog called The Angry Grappler. It will chronicle the evolution in my understanding of martial arts.

Everyone has their own unique brand and style of jiu jitsu, but I think there is only one true pure most optimum form of jiu jitsu, techniques vary but as far as game plans go, it should go as thus.

You take the guy down. You pass his guard. Get sidemount. Get mount. Go for choke. Either finish choke or take his arm when he defends.

You get taken down. Recover and try to get full guard to control your opponent. Break his posture. Finish with triangle or armbar.

The takedown or sweep is unsuccessful, there is a scramble, in the scramble you take their back, sink your hooks in, control one of their hands, then get the choke.

The End.

Every other move is great but these moves are all what you really need. Example, Roger Gracie, Rickson Gracie, Kron, etc.
