One thing I don't get: how come we don't drill, drill, and re-drill this in Judo? Why are we always "left to figure it out?" I guess that works for some people but not for me, certainly!
I really feel as though our sport could do with aping BJJ.
Most drills I have done under one of my instructors were valuable to me because I drilled realistic movements and such. Some other drills left me scratching my head saying, "I'd never actually do that..."
The same will hold true of bjj, some drills will leave you scratching your head. Not every will be practicality for you and your game: inverted guards? How about berimbolo? cartwheel passes? Anything from eddie bravo? Moves that require flexible shoulders or extreme back flexibility? I say again not everything taught, or drilled in bjj will be practical for you and most likely soon forgotten. Drilled or not.
I think what NYC was trying to say is that in Judo you are generally taught a technique, lets say Uchi mata.
You get shown the Ukemi and practice that about 5 times, then the entry with foot positions another 5 times and then practice the throw, maybe 10 times. If you get stuck and have to ask, sometimes your partner doesnt even get a go before they change the technique and move on to something else.
In BJJ you are shown a technique and then have at least 15 minutes to drill it which means you get to do plenty of repetitions
