If You're Stuck

Plateaus are normal. The important thing is to remember that it’s normal and where the path to mastery lives.

But sometimes you can forget, and the slump can suck.

One way to get unstuck is to focus on one thing. Most recently, I was able to break out of one by making cross collar chokes my only attack from mount, and only triangles from guard. By removing all other options, my game plan was simplified, and my definition of a “good round” changed.

And the side benefit of course, was that my cross collar chokes and triangles improved.
