The title is a quote of Dave Camarillo‘s from a Fightworks Podcast interview.
I think it’s absolutely true. There are obviously many exceptions to this overgenaralization, but the more I learn, the more I realize the power of the game that involves nothing more than a double leg takedown to a pressure pass.
So, drilling this aspect of jiu jitsu is essential, not only for learning the timing of a good takedown but being comfortable with attacking the transition of a successful takedown. Too often I get the takedown, settle, and then begin to pass. I feel like passing could be a lot easier if I begin passing in that split second when my opponent is still adjusting to being taken down.
