The dualities of jiu jitsu: Much of the essential nature of jiu jitsu is revealed by its many notable dualities. One of the most fundamental and important is that between and defense. It is critical that you become equally adept at as inadequacies in one will make you incapable of revealing your strengths in the other. If i know my defense is I will always be unwilling to take the risks required for offense for fear of ending in a vulnerable position that I cannot defend. If my offense is I will hide behind my defense and never exhibit the ability to carry the fight to my opponent and take victory. It is your duty then, to approach the learning of every move from the viewpoint of offense and defense – THE MORE YOU LEARN ABOUT ONE, THE MORE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE OTHER. Every move in jiu jitsu has faces – and defense – if you only one you are growing at only half your potential.
