This Is Why Most New Jiu-Jitsu Techniques Will Not Work for You

If you’ve been involved in jiu-jitsu very long, chances are you have experienced this phenomenon: you see a great new technique, learn how to do it and drill it a few times, only to have it fail miserably the first time you try it against your sparring partner. It’s a common occurrence, and one with a simple reason; most techniques can’t be learned in a day.

For that matter most techniques can’t be learned in a week either, and, in some cases, a month. New techniques take practice to the point of in-depth understanding and repetition to the point of muscle memory to truly be effective. For this reason, most new BJJ techniques won’t work for you until they are no longer new to you anymore.
