As it was said many many years ago "Variety’s the very spice of life that gives it all its flavour." That quote was written by William Cowper - no he's not a Gracie nor an Eddie Bravo. Keep your Pony tights on grapplers. My point is those that are exposed to a wide variety of styles and techniques will not only develop a unique style all there own, but also have he ability to create their own approaches and techniques.
As I've stated many times before, mixing grapping styles will undoubtedly give you the best variety of attacks, sweeps and techniques. We welcome Alan Baker, whom is a life long martial artist, Judo Black Belt and CSW Coach under Erik Paulson. He is owner and head coach at the Atlanta Martial Arts Center and he shows us a variety of unique sweeps and variations of your standard butterfly hook sweep.
And in the famous words of another prolific grappler "If you don't evolve, you die." - CM Punk
