Private forum for development

I will start a private site for developing a sparring and rolling system.
It will be private so that I can use more freely vids and instructionals.

Or I'll use Grapplers guide's blog, which is also not public, but might give some feedback on ideas.

Just letting you know that it might be slow here for a while...

Short and simple

I've been thinking about future open mat system. Students might not know how to spar or roll - not in an alive way or not by using progressive resistance.

I think I need to collect some very simple concepts to get rolling and sparring alive straight from the beginning. "Keep it playful"? Yes in a sense that tapping is not bad. It's about learning and learning opponents reactions.

So 27 Feb, 2017 I need to have an idea on how to progressively develop sparring and rolling so that every one has fun and can develop better physical condition...

Easy :-)

10000 repetitions?

We all know Bruce Lee's quate that he does not fear a person who drills 1000 moves, but a person who trains one technique 1000 times and also that research states that to master a technique you need 10 000 hours of training.

So it's important to drill, but what to drill! What is the key feature one has to nail down to be successful. It's harmful to drill 10000 hours something you don't need.

Some ideas how to find out is to figure put what is the problem in your game and start fixing problems. Can't start standing something and see the holes in your game or reactions in opponents moves. Start doing microdrills and positional rolling to learn.

Starting a cross open mat for all martial arts

My idea is to start managing an open mat session every weekday from 2 pm to 4 pm.
I'll try to get judo, boxing wrestling, han mo do, taikwondo, karate, kempo...and what ever martial artist is interested to join.
