Puffer Fish techniques ...

Puffer Fish - apparently, if you get it right, it is a taste sensation ... the problem is, if you get it wrong, people die! Horribly! Consequently, most people stay away from eating Puffer Fish. I think the same mechanism is at play in BJJ - there are techniques, if executed EXACTLY correctly, work really, really well - but if one little aspect is overlooked, one tiny detail omitted, things turn out badly for us ... these are the Puffer Fish techniques. Most people may try them once or twice, have a bad experience, as a result and never try them again. In my view - we should embrace these techniques - not just for their own sake - but to nurture and develop our love of nuance and technical detail. JBW
