PUNISH US WITH SOME SAMBO TECHNIQUES, PLEASE.
In the video our sturdy uchitelʹ (teacher) goes over some punishing techniques that, if done properly, will undoubtedly force your opponent to give up.
In the end I was very impressed with the techniques shown here. This is one aspect of grappling that is somewhat difficult to teach - it involves constant pressure and grinding that comes only from countless hours of mat time. Next time your in the gym concentrate on clean technique and using more pressure. It will likely discourage and grind down your partner, forcing him/her to make some mistakes and give up position. Once again the sweet language of grappling softly wispers to us ...Yeeeeaaatt!
