Default I have a question about BJJ....

I have been in awhile and I am a white belt. I took a few years off and recently got back in. MY question is, How do people remember every single small step when doing various moves?

I mean, there is so many steps to every little step and what not. I can pull off subs and slip peoples guards.... sometimes.... but my style is not nearly as mathematical as others doing it.

Your answer is repetition. Do it until you remember it. Instead of free rolling, you may want to focus on specific drills. Just focus on doing a particular move over and over until you get it.

it just takes time. what happens is when you get taught a move its usually taught in progression. for example do A, then B, then C etc.. but as you improve you start to get a feel for how your opponent will react so you start to gain an understanding of WHY you do these things. thats when there becomes less emphasis in your mind of the step by step details and more a focus on how to break your opponents defenses to the move down one by one.
its like when you learn to change gears in a car. At first its push the clutch in, push the stick left, push the stick up, let the clutch out and for a while you might lose speed or miss a gear or grind the gears.
After practise though you can do it almost effortlessly because you can feel how the car is responding as your doing it.

Practice. But remember when rolling if you want to something in particular you want to stay one step ahead of the other player.

Drill. Roll that drill and then free spar.

Work on guard for 2 months and move on to side contol for two months then mount. After these 6 months you should have a pretty good knowledge of the basics. Then move on to other aspects...

Look at one video on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or YouTube every few days or once a week and try and learn it. Be sensible though and learn the basics first. Whenever my coach does an open lesson you will always get one of the new guys ask how he can pull off a flying armbar or inverted triangle...

We are talking Gi right?

I hope this helps.

bjj is amazing get into it but get into boxing first as i believe the best combination of skill sets is mixing boxing with bjj so you are confident in your stand up and versatile on the ground. I have had some experience with bjj but its ****ing tricky very very tough in competitions especially if your just beginning, however i love boxing so yea man thats my advice peace!

Muscle memory. Just like with everything else if you do it enough eventually you don't have to rationalize each step you just do it. Ever think through steps of how to tie your shoelaces anymore?

You don't remember, its instinct.

Freddie Roach said it best "If you see an opening, it's already gone". BOOM!

It's taken me a total of 4 years to get my purple and going by average ranking time, I'm slightly above average. Being in the Marines allows me to dedicate alot of time to actually training instead to the normal classes. I want my Blackbelt before 30..
