Setting the terms of your 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.

Once you are good enough to even have a game, and your opponent has a game, who wins? Whoever is able to set the terms of their game first wins.

Big mistake is sometimes you don't even set any terms and just trying to play but all you end up is reacting to what they are doing or trying to outspeed them.

What's better is always do the moves and especially set ups that moves them to an area that is well within your game. Like grip fighting until you get a cross collar grip. Or pushing them away until you get butterfly guard. That is setting the terms of your game.
