Little Things

Somebody once told me , “If you take care of the little things, the big things take care of themselves.”  Well, during the course of learning sweeps from half guard today, Mark (instructor) pointed out I had my feet placement backwards when holding half guard.  I’ve been doing jiu jitsu for over two years now, and half guard is day one shit!  Mark let me know I’d be able to sweep people a lot easier by simply changing this one “little thing.”

Half guard is a position I end up in a lot, and have trouble doing much from there.  This may be a reason why.  I was trying to take care of the big things, i.e. sweeps and submissions, without having the little things mastered.  Well, now I know.  Thanks Mark!
