So I'm pretty new to BJJ and I hear people talk alot about developing your own game. Working on the same few moves that you find work well for you over and over until you know all the set ups and how to transitition when someone counters. In theory, it all sounds great. It sounds like the perfect way to grow as a BJJ practicioner. In reality, I find it to be somewhat different. I find that with being "the new guy" that I'm not able to work anything... anything at all. I find I 'm getting stuck on my back alot less, so I'm obviously becoming better with position as escapes, but submissions still seem a far way away. When newer guys come in I find I can dominate them position wise and finish a few submissions, but surely that's meaningless? What material do you look for when you build a game? Surely all the moves that are being taught in class are the ones you're never going to catch people with because everyone knows them and knows how to defend them? But then if you're looking to DVD's, you've not been taught them so you're probably going to develop bad habits from learning yourself? I'm starting to think that maybe I just don't "get" BJJ. Any advice for a frustrated newbie?
