The concept – though not necessarily easy to master – is a simple one at it’s most fundamental level …
If you are fighting someone larger and stronger – by trying to ‘force’ or imnpose your technique on them, you give them ‘clarity of purpose’ – ie: if you need to pull their sleeve hard, then they feel that and resist accordingly (being ‘clear’ on what they need to do to stop or resist your tactic) – consequently, they feel ‘strong’ – and difficult to manage. If however, you do not try to impose your technique, but instead just ‘flow’ with ‘current’ of the fight – then the opponent (if he or she is less experienced or less technical) has no clear sense of purpose – ie: they are left unsure about how they need to apply their strength. Pull their arm strongly, they are clear that they need to pull back strongly; push them strongly, they are clear that they need to push back strongly; pull them down strongly, they are clear that they need to ‘posture up’ strongly – but give them nothing, they become ‘rudderless/directionless, etc. Empty jacket Jiu Jitsu is about giving your opponent no clear qeue’s on how they should apply their strength. This, very counter-intuitive way of rolling works especially well against larger, stronger (but less experienced/less technical) opponents. It forms the basis of flow-rolling … try it today.
