Simplicity - to complexity - to Simplicity

BJJ is addictive because the simplest of strategies can prove to be highly effective. But over time  it’s complexity becomes increasingly obvious - and things can become more than a little confusing. But keep this in mind - as time continues to pass - and you settle into the higher ranks, you will come to understand and appreciate the simple things once again.
For example, you might be exposed to 20 Spider-guard techniques in class over a given part of the training year - but it’s worth paring this down at some point, and distilling all that info down into a two, three or four technique ‘spider guard game’ - one that is easily digestible and ‘connects’ seamlessly with other aspects of your overall BJJ game. Hence - we make a transition from complexity, back to simplicity. JBW
