It's all in the hips they say. It's the hips that give you that mobility, that smoothness of movement. You're not gonna dance the Cha Cha for crap without loose and mobile hips.
But, we're talkin' BJJ grapplers, and we all know that hip mobility truly is vital to better performance. You use them for simple movements like "hip" escapes, guard recapturing, sprawling and for proper armbar and triangle execution. It's essential BJJ stuff. You know this.
You also know that the hips take a beating from all that use in BJJ and they can get tight. And, that isn't good for your Jiu Jitsu. So, take a few minutes to learn how to massage your weary hips using the ubiquitous foam roller ... thanks to our good friends at Jits Magazine (they always come through with great material).
