Hybrid Success Challenge, Day 3

Hybrid Success Challenge, Day 3

As I outlined in my original post, a great deal of my wrestling has always come in the form of counter-wrestling.  Letting my opponent make the first move and then working to put out fires as they come up.  

It's not the smartest of strategies, but it's pretty much all I've got.  Today, I opted to try and identify a few of my worst habits so that I can hopefully start to break a few of them.

Hybrid Success Challenge: My Next Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Project

I have managed to go the past five years of my jiu-jitsu journey getting by on counter-wrestling, misdirection, and (what I like to call) creative sprawling, but I see my tricks getting old real fast.  Despite the better efforts of my truly amazing instructors and training partners, my efforts to improve my wrestling skills have been marginal at best.  I know that in order to even maintain level of being “passable” as I continue to rise up the ranks in BJJ, I have to evolve.

That is why I’ve decided to put myself on a 30 day wrestling challenge.
