Entry Positions In BJJ

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.

If you are finding difficulty in holding your sidemount or mount or with passes or sweeps it may not be a problem with your sidemount or mount or other technique. The failure of those positions may have happened several moves ago, in the initial entry position.

If your entry position was not properly set up for your pass or sweep. Like your grip or knee and hip position, all your subsequent positions will also be off.

Instead of starting an endless cycle of trying to rework your pass or sidemount and find the same thing is happening over and over, it may be time to take a look again at your entry position. It's like your first impression, all their reactions to your moves will be determined by that initial first impression and its hard to undo a bad first impression so start it off right
