Just curious your guys thoughts on this. I realize most people study under one professor for most of there grappling career, or maybe two so this may not apply.......... But for me I have been a bit more of a vagabond When it comes to grappling for different reasons, namely moving and being an MMA promoter (along with a licensed Judge and Ref) it wasn't always o.k. in my mind to train at certain gyms who had fighters training out of them ie. Conflict of interest. So anyways, was pretty fun tonight at class to see my girlfriend chain different techniques taught from 4 separate schools to land a sub on a purple belt dude. She transitioned to North South and locked in the DWL/Kimura and rolled him up onto his side(1-staple of Shamrock Submission Fighting). Her partner tucked his arm in deep and grabbed his own Gi. She then switched the grip (2-using a C grip connecting her hands learned at Dave Camarillo's) and looped her arm (hand on his wrist) all the way thru pulling it up high which prys his arm up enough (3-learned from Lotus Club BB) to spin for the far side armbar (4- learned recently from multiple degree Carlson Gracie BB) to finish the sub. Now I realize most of, if not all of these techniques are taught at each school eventually, or at least some are. But I believe her opponent was caught off guard by the loop switch and hand grip set up from the Kimura/DWL which were combined from two separate teachers. Sometimes it's rough because she will learn one armbar setup from her time with Camarillo and then as she studies under the Carlson guy, his way is almost the opposite of Camarillos so it's confusing.... Thought it was cool to see the fusing of styles to catch a nice legit sub on a higher male opponent. Anyone else have this type of experience?
