Default Mental Revelations of the Progressing Grappler

Roy Dean posted a link to this article on his blog. Good stuff, it has given me some points to think about in my own training, particularly with pressure and being heavy on top.

That was a cool article. The relaxation thing really hits home! Gant has told me several times that I need to learn to relax and not try to "force" movement at all times or "use strength" constantly. I know he's right, It's just hard to do!

It will be cool when I start to feel "linkage" in Judo. In some positions, I do feel it from my wrestling background. But not in most positions.
