OK, so you’ve just learned a cool new technique – a sweep, a pass, a submission – that you’re pretty sure is the Kryptonite you need to defeat your hardest sparring partner. It’s the missing piece you’ve been looking for.
But then you crash and burn when you try it out in sparring. Your opponent ignores your move, passes your guard, smashes you flat and taps you out.
What’s going on?
In this episode of The Strenuous Life Podcast I break down exactly why techniques NEVER work on the day they’re shown, and the simple steps you need to make that killer technique functional as fast as humanly possible.
