While we are going to practice individual techniques, what we are going to work on a lot this summer developing the transition. To make an individual technique work is very difficult but when you combine two or three attacks (two or three techniques together) the chances that you will be successful in submitting your opponent becomes much higher. If you keep bouncing from one technique to the other, like an americana to armbar to a kimura then that combination has a higher chance to be successful since it wears out your opponent. The more time you spend in on transitional drills we will be doing in class, the better your Jiu Jitsu will become.
