Juniors cover all options on route to victory: Outstanding junior members, Frank Rosenthal, Katya Leontyeva and Danny Hernandez had great wins in Global Grappling League super fights yesterday in Phoenix NY. All three won by submission- an bar, a leg and and a strangle – covering all three of the major possibilities of submission- arm, leg and strangle. Always the idea is to threaten the whole with submission- it’s much harder to defend a wide expanse of territory than a narrow one. It’s great to see the juniors doing exactly that in competition. This is an important lesson for all of you – of course it’s desirable to have favorite moves with which you can smash through determined opposition even when they expect it coming, but it’s equally desirable to be versatile enough with your that an opponent never really knows where the next is coming from and thus has to scatter his or her defenses and fall prey to feigned on one area only to be caught in another. LEARNING TO PLAY BETWEEN FOCUSED OF FORCE AND WIDE RANGING VERSATILITY IS A KEY PART OF YOUR DEVELOPMENT AS A STUDENT OF SUBMISSIONS. Work on this crucial theme and soon you will see similar results as these outstanding students!
