Good Jiu Jitsu terms/ basic knowledge for beginners to know?
- 6 months ago
There are a whole host of them really which some schools really don't do a very good job of teaching about. Instead they just allude to them leaving individuals in the dark more and that then really hampers an individual's progress and training down the road I think. Just let me add that you see that also in other martial and fighting arts where the school in question and instruction and coaching is bad. Below are a few for you to do some light reading about on the Internet.
Framing, hand or wrist control, gi control, lowering or dropping your center of gravity, staying heavy, using leverage.

These things are usually covered in class. Ask some fellow classmates or the instructor.
And which type of jiujitsu? There is Japanese, Brazilian/Gracie and a few others out there! Not only is the language different, terms as well.
