Here we are going to discuss about what is sparring in bjj. Read the article and know all about sparring and how it is helpful for a bjj student.
There are two types of bjj student. Firstly the one who mostly drill and the other one who mostly spar.
The BJJ practitioners who go for drill has no doubt have an excellent body positioning, proper technical execution with great coordination and a deep understanding of what they are doing.
Know about Sparring:
Sparring, is known as rolling in Bjj which is different at all. Here the issue comes when the BJJ practitioners try and spar the technique against a training partner that is combating entirely. Sparring needs a great timing. It involves great balance and an intuitive idea of where their limbs are and where their opponent’s limbs are. A proper coordination is required. These students should have a good transition from position to position. Apart from that they should have the quality to control adversity and stress.
Sparring, often cause typical injuries. It has been seen that Jiu Jitsu rolling is tough at times and two BJJ students aggressively attacking for submissions and sweeps may lead to serious accidents.
It is dynamic:
The student who follows Sparring, without having problem solving skills will not be able to execute the BJJ technique in a constant dynamic, changing scenario. So it is significant to have the proper know how of the skill.
The art of sparring is a bit technical:
If you will see the BJJ students those who spar a lot are not necessarily very technically proficient. They use only their body positioning a little off for their sweeps. So while studying the process of Sparring consider the things to learn the technique, practice the technique, master the technique and then finally do it, in the art of sparring.
The Jiu-Jitsu students like to learn the art of sparring or rolling as their favourite part of the class. They put all their mental and physical efforts into training to be at the top among their teammates. Obviously sparring, make you a better BJJ practitioner, but still you need to incline to certain things like not to choose the same partners, not to be afraid to lose, not to lose focus of your mission, not to forget to link your techniques and finally not to lose track of your points.
