"I was just reviewing 'The Pillars of Guard Passing" by Stephen Whittier at 40 Plus BJJ and damn... it's almost like cheating.
All, this is a must view for we more aged fossils on of the mats. I've been able to put it to very good use. This conceptual approach:
1) Gives a very solid concept on how to use your body weight to engage someone of higher strength, younger age, and higher skill level.
2) Dramatically increases your mat IQ; it makes you pay attention to your angles, combined with your weight, and heighten your situational awareness.
3) Helps you relax when you roll and avoid burning your high octane fuel that you may need later.
