I just realized that we should spend a lot more time drilling, especially and lower belt levels. My class is built like that : 30 minutes of bullshit warmup (I'm ok with shrimping and bridging, but I don't come to class to do pushups, to run in circle and to do dynamic stretching) 30 minutes of technique where 3 moves are usually shown to us 30 minutes of sparring I'm a blue belt and I'm starting to realize that I have already seen many moves, but there are not so many I trust and I can rely on, because usually, the instructor will show a move, we drill it for 5 minutes, and move on. As a consequence, I realized that the only moves I'm confident in are 3 closed guard attacks, 2 closed guard sweeps, 1 half guard attack, 1 half guard sweep, 1 butterfly sweep, 1 closed guard pass, 1 open guard pass, 1 half guard pass, and a few basic side control, back and mount subs. That's hardly 15 moves, which I don't consider to be enough since I have been training 5 times a week for 2 years. I also may have seen hundreds of move, but I have either forgotten them or am doing them in a very approximative way that doesn't allow me to hit them in sparring. I'd rather have seen 50 moves, but know them very well. I'm thinking about asking one of my buddies to stay 30 minutes after each class, so we can drill the same moves over and over again. For instance, for one week, we would just drill 3 half guard sweeps over and over again, and once this is done, move on to half guard attacks the week after, etc. etc.
