    Right now I'm constantly trying to put my self in the other persons guard and try to pass it.
    I'm also only looking for a specific submission.

    The reason why I'm doing this is to consentrate on a few things at the time, since I only work out twice a week.

    Will this make it harder for me to later go with the flow or flow with the go?

    Thanks

    There's nothing wrong with handicapping yourself for a short period of time to work on a specific part of your game.

    I'll pick a particularly weak position for me and purposely start every roll there. I did this with being pinned underneath scarf for 2 weeks a few months back. None of my teammates had any complaints about getting to start in a dominant position and it forced me to work on my defense and escapes from what was one of the weaker aspects of my game.

    Yeah, when I started for some reason I felt comfortable on my back so I stayed there until I developed a decent open guard (decnt for 6 months). Since I have started focusing on pushing my offense fromthe bottom. Also, some days all I do is try sweeps from guard and don't go for subs until I am on top.

    Good stuff, I'll keep working like this for a while and see what happens.
