To those of you who train in Jujitsu or the grappling arts, this is for you to play with. I know we all train our particular techniques whether for form or for practical use (i.e. randori, or reality), but do we practice a thousand different techniques because we need certain ones in certain situations? That's the big question.
I say this to all of you. Take a move that you like, such as wakigatame, like we did at a recent seminar. Then, get yourself into any grappling position you like and use that move to get out of the position. We did it from a standing position, attacking position, guard, side mount, and front mount. I'll tell you now that you will find endless possibilities. Will they all work for you? Probably not, but it doesn't matter because it will certainly give you a different perspective on what you are doing.
Give it a shot and come on back and tell me about it.
