I found myself recently going back to the focus on defence and escapes. It feels like the unforgiving training strategy, living close to the edge of submission, it's been good for the ego. What are other's approach to defence training? Do you go through phases of going to bad positions, or just work on it as it comes in sparring? Some interesting concepts here (also interested in how many people in Iceland train BJJ? I didn't even know they had schools for it there). Other instructional I've been studying the Lachlan Giles escapes. There are some solid top position players in our gym, so it really is a big test to get the defence and escape once they are passed the guard. I'm 90kg blue belt, so I don't often find myself in bottom position, recently I forced it as I noticed how much of a gap in my game it is.
