It is very subtle - but it just doesn't have very many individual techniques to learn. Grappling, by contrast, has at least 6 primary positions (compared to one or two stances in boxing). Each of these 6 positions needs to be trained both on top and bottom, and on the right and left. After that there are many additional variations of each position. Then for each of these positions you can apply a huge number of different transitions, submissions, escapes and defenses. It's easy to see why BJJ has hundreds and hundreds of distinct techniques, and why new students can quickly feel overwhelmed. So what should a beginner do to make sense of all this technique? How can he organize his knowledge and decide what he should learn next? Part of the solution is to recognize that there are only 6 primary BJJ positions.
The 6 Primary Positions; If you watch any BJJ sparring, be it in class or at a tournament, you will see that the combatants spend about 90% of their time on the ground in one of the following positions:
2. Side Mount
3. Knee Mount
5. Rear Mount
The 6 high-percentage submissions commonly used in sparring and competition:
• the straight armbar
• the Kimura armlock
• the guillotine choke
• the triangle choke
• the omo plata armlock
• the cross-collar choke (if the top man is wearing a gi)
