grappling advice

Post by darkhobo » Wed Nov 24, 2004 11:48 pm

i grapled live for my first time last class, and though i got my ass kicked, it was tons of fun...
our sensei says he wants to do this more often...and partly why i got my ass kicked, and why i was getting yelled at constantly...is because i found my old school wrestling reactions coming back ot me...such as when i fall, falling to my stomach, rolling incorrectly, and mounting wrong...
any advice as to how i can fix this? or will only practice help?
any advice as to how to better myself in general are also welcome
thanks

im not entirely sure what you mean, but if you want to give me some fine details etc, i can help.... i teach Ju-Jutsu as an assistant instructor which involves a lot of standing to floor, and groundwork!

gimmie some details, and i can work out what the problem migt be. if i can find a dummy from the class, i could even do some vids.

LOL good point but think about it, there is something that we practice all the time, driving, screwing up paper and becoming expert bin landers...useless skills perhaps(not driving of course)but a practice all the same.

yea, but you still need a driving instructor to show you the right way to do something, then you can practice at becoming better at it. i teach certain drills to people to do by themselves, at home, so they can practice the right movements, in repitition.

you DO need to practice, and repeat, but you also need to know what your doing, and why your doing it. practicing the same mistakes, over and over again will just develop the bad habbits you dont want!

thats true, very true, but when reaches the higher levels of a certain art or skill the...the(can't find right word)possibilties/techniques/understanding reach the same conclusion though they might have been reached in totally different ways. but the bad habit bit i can't argue with :-D

yea, your mostly right, the end reasult is usually the same (or at least has the appearence of being the same)... or to plagerise, "its not the truth, but a very good lie!"
but sheer practice alone wont get you anywhere. if you only know 6 "moves" you can only ever practice 6! it is possible to modify, or "experement" and luck might find you landing on a good technique. but a little guidence will save a LOT of time.

we had 1 bloke with us who had learnt everything he knew from a book, for about 7 years.... apparently up to first dan level (he had a whole series of books. lol) turns out that the lads who had been training for 6 months ish knew a hell of a lot more, and could execute the techniques properly. chuckled for ages over that...... "waterstones white belts" we call them, now.
