Is confidence in fighting off your back counterproductive?
I'm talking about it from a scoring perspective.
I've noticed that some great BJJ guys who are great off their backs or just very confident with their ground game, seems to let themselves get taken down.
However, more often than not, getting taken down seems like an automatic point for the guy who shoots. Depending on how a judge views things.
I know that they can easily get a submission, or probably sweep and be on top. But what if they don't, and they gave away a takedown?
