Flow Drills at the Academy
A couple of weeks ago we did flow drills at the Academy and Jay filmed them when we were done.
What's a flow drill? Good question. Each of us had to write a technique, demonstrate it if it wasn't known by everyone, and then logically link them together in a flow drill. The benefit of this is of course that we get to work with techniques other people like, while at the same time broadening our understanding of how BJJ techniques can be easily linked. That is to say, no technique is very far from another. The benefit of the flow drill and the random design element of the flow(student picked techniques and then those techniques were organized more or less randomly) encouraged us to build and elaborate our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu vocabulary. It also allowed us to see how we each linked the same techniques differently.
