I've been doing BJJ for about 2.5 weeks now, which I realize is not a long time. I am learning the techniques fairly quickly, but the problem I'm having is with free rolling. I pick up techniques very fast; our instructor is good and quick to make pointers about small things to correct (for instance last night he pointed out that I kept grabbing my foot to pull in a triangle rather than the shin). The techniques themselves are fairly easy and I usually have decent form after just a few tries. But then I get to free rolling and I lose all the structure. It sort of becomes for me: if my partner is not in the EXACT position he was in the drills then I don't really know how to pull something off. For instance, I know how to armbar from guard, but only from guard. I know how to get a triangle from spider guard, but again only if I'm in the exact position I was when we drilled it. Is this just a matter of me not knowing enough variations? Or am I just not making connections when things are a little more variable. Or maybe I'm doing things right and I should be trying to find those exact positions befor attempting a sub? Just wondering if there is some time where it's just going to click how to transition from x position to y position to z submission, etc.
