Technique in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – At Team Fusion Academy here in Salt Lake City, our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu style is completely focused on technique. We adhere to this to the degree that it is part of our logo. “Dedicated to Technique” is not just a slogan for us. It is about how we approach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
We are a Pedro Sauer School. Growing up with the Gracie family, Pedro was small in size compared to those around him. Because he did not have size as an advantage, he focused on being a master technician. We carry on that tradition at our school to this day. It is part of everything we do.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – Technique Over Strength and Athleticism
Now – let me be clear. Strength, speed and athleticism definitely helps. There is no doubt about that. But at some point, when two opponents are fairly evenly matched as far as size and athleticism, if one has better technique, that person is going to win.
That is why when students are new, we focus their attention on technique. Though they might want to utilize their strength or speed (especially younger practitioners), we know that over time, this will be insufficient against opponents with superior technique.
How We Drill Brazilian Jiu Jitsu At Our School
When we teach a technique, whether it is a sweep, take down, or submission, we go over every fine detail of that technique. We show students precisely what it takes to execute a move with mastery and skill. No detail is left out. Hand position, body position, weight distribution, where your feet need to be, everything.
And once we show it, we practice it repeatedly until students have the move down. Then we drill it more. Then we practice it in our training sessions. We don’t just teach one technique per week and hope our students have it down. We go over it again and again until it becomes part of their muscle memory.
