Re: Define grappling

Yea, not following you either Shane. Actually the thing we do in BJJ as you get better is to constantly be responding appropriately and getting ahead of your opponents next move. Our objective is to think three or four moves ahead, much like in chess.

With such experience and skill, you can defeat stronger, faster, heavier opponents as they get behind the curve.

Good grappling is as soft and blending as aikido.

that said, strength, size etc are always factors. In competition, obviously they get played to as you will use everything you have to your advantage.
