Groundhold Escapes and Reversals
Being on the bottom is no fun - learn how to apply judo groundhold escapes and reversals (gaeshi waza) efficiently!
Many people don't realize this, but having a solid ground fighting game, and in particular, knowing that you have very good escapes and reversals from groundholds will actually help your standing game! If you are confident with your escapes and your ground game in general, you'll be able to more fully commit to your throws - there won't be nearly the fear of a failed throw costing you the match due to getting stuck in a ground hold.
Learn your judo groundhold escapes and reversals (gaeshi waza) thoroughly, and make yourself a more well-rounded fighter!
