We hear all the time, "If you neglect the fundamentals/basics, your game will have massive holes." Just as the title implies. every instructor has his or her own ciriculum, however I want to discuss your opinions on what the raw, bare basics of jiu jitsu really are. What techniques do you guys (or girls) think is the absolute essential basics of this fine art? The techniques which every player MUST continue to practice and perfect in order to maintain a solid game. Whether it be passes, transitions, set-up's, sweeps, submissions, guards, etc. Everybody has their own opinion, however I expect most of you have very similar beleifs. Discuss.
