Wrestling 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.

Rolling with a world class wrestler is in a lot of ways like rolling with a world class Jiu Jitsu black belt. Both are master grapplers on the ground and it is hard to do anything on them.

The difference is, with wrestlers I feel they play it more by ear. They feel things, play it by sensitivity, rhythm, and a lot of it seems attribute based. Whereas a black belt seems much more deliberate.

Both are great for different reasons and a good blend of both will make you an even better grappler. Sometimes a wrestler, because of how they move seems untouchable, but a world class black belt seems unbeatable.
