Steve & Matt Kwan

This week, Steve and Matt are joined by Jon Thomas, the legendary black belt and BJJ instructor.  Steve, Matt, and Jon have a spirited discussion about the best way to integrate new techniques into your game.  We also discuss the limitations of principles and how being dogmatic about them can hinder your development.

Jon suggests four ways to integrate new techniques:

  1. ask your coach
  2. watch an instructional
  3. watch competition video
  4. creativity
