While jiu jitsu is still evolving, and there are new guards, submissions and positions it feels like every couple of months, it’s nice sometimes to see a “blast from the past” so to speak- an old technique that’s like that you loved and for some reason or another moved away from. It’s like that song you used to play all the time, stop listening to for a couple of years and then hear on the radio again. You may not remember every single word, every nuance, but everything has a warm, familiar ring to it and tends to bring back memories. Some probably good, some probably a little frustrating, but that’s part of the whole process, and advancing in rank.
