So, it's been three weeks now since my transition from nogi to gi. so far it's been a blast. But i constantly get told by those who roll with me that, "you have a strong base". I'm not exactly sure how to take this. I'm strong for my size 162 lbs, bench 310, squat 475. I try very hard not to muscle anything. But when i get told this, i worry that this translates to "you use a lot of muscle." I really don't want to be "that guy" who just relies on brute strength. So my question is, what does it mean when someone tells you, "you have a very strong base." is it a compliment or a backhanded compliment?
