Although they are basic attacks taught in the first lessons one might learn in a BJJ school, the moves analyzed in this module (helmed by black-belt Leandro Slaib) require several years of practice for a fighter to hone their more sophisticated adjustments.
A change in the angle of the hip positioning, or anticipating a defensive motion by one's opponent, or even the ability to articulate the move with a repertoire of double or triple attacks make triangles, armlocks, omoplatas and more into unstoppable submissions.
The best illustration of this is the jiu-jitsu of Roger Gracie, who has a simple game with a base made up of moves that are taught to beginners. The big difference is that the adjustments and the execution are practically perfect.
It is with this base -- of simple moves executed well -- that Leandro Slaib shows us multiple adjustments that will improve your game.
Take in every detail in order not to just "know the moves," but also master the finishing details of these submissions. There is an enormous distance between the moment we lock a move in place and the moment our opponent taps out. This module's mission is to build a shortcut between these two poles and optimize your BJJ. Enjoy.
