John Danaher Explained Two Methods To Beat An Opponent
Definitely, athletes use numerous ways to compel the opponent to tap out. However, you can narrow these ways into two simple methods as well. It’s not actually about winning the BJJ fight or tapping the opponent out. John Danner has a different approach to that.
The greatest BJJ instructor, John Danaher, has something else in mind. He explained two methods to beat an opponent like this:
You can either develop your movement potential to a degree where you can consistently out maneuver your opponents in order to get into winning positions.
This requires you to create movement that speeds the game up beyond a point that your opponent can follow and generally favors athletes with good mobility and speed.
The second option is to stop or restrict an opponent’s movement.
The focus is on slowing the game down in situations that favor you, and this typically favors athletes with isometric strength and endurance.
The first method is to execute the movement, and the second is to deny the movement:
Usually peop,le will tend to naturally gravitate towards one or the other without being prompted or coerced.
Interestingly, athletes who start with a movement based game will usually switch as they age to a movement denial game.
