I have been training my students in groundfighting recently. I have been asked on many occassions how i keep control by not panicking. They watch me bide my time waiting for a mistake from my Uki. Inevatably when they do I capitalise on the situation. I use a trick taught to me by Prof W. Jay. In times of agony i think of a peacefull moving image-a windmill!
Anyone else have any ideas? Johnny BJJA

I just remember to concentrate on my breathing, when I think about that it calms me down, and also slows down my thoughts about what's happening. --------------------------------------------- Robsco! - The Site Administrator 'I'm sure your style is impressive on other planets, however, your weak link is that this is Earth'

i concentrate on not getting caught in submissions, and try to think about what position i want to gain/control/move to then i break it down into what i have to do to get there, then try to work out what to do if he does somthing.

Put the water into the cup.The water becomes the cup.I dont know I just try and relax.If i,m in a hold on the ground.I let my self get dragged around the mats to catch up and control my breathing and try to ignore the pain when i,m looking for weakness.
