No Bad Positions

I think the reason why people’s BJJ flow is often not what it could be comes from spending 80% of our time sparring holding or passing guard.

How are you going to develop any type of flow if you don’t spend ample time in every position?

How often do you see a BJJ practitioner, especially if it’s one of the better people in the gym intentionally spend a whole sparring session on mount bottom?

The above goes along with my theory that the reason why Roger Gracie cross-choked the crap out everyone from mount is no one was investing any time on the receiving end.

It follows that if you have a lot of knowledge on how to deal with such scenarios, ‘bad’ positions are actually quite fun to explore, defend, and yes, tap out from.
