What is a ” dick move ” in BJJ? Where is the dividing line between using a perfectly acceptable Brazilian Jiu-jitsu technique and doing something that makes you a jerk, possibly injures someone, or just makes people not want to roll with you?
Before I dive into any more information. Let me say that if you are in question about whether or not you’re using a “dick move” or being a jerk in BJJ. . You probably are.
In the video I share, what I feel, are the 2 biggest determining factors.
Dick Move in BJJ Video
Those 2 things being. . .
1. The origin of the technique within. What sort of place did this technique come from in you? What kind of emotions fueled it?
2. The intent or objective of this BJJ technique or move. What is the point and what are you trying to achieve?
There are some techniques that are inherently not cool to use. But for the most part. I believe if you are coming from a cool, collected place mentally when you’re rolling. You’ll be less likely to do something someone would consider a “dick” move.
When Used A Dick Move
From my own experience. I did dick moves all the time as a younger practitioner because I was afraid to lose, or because I would get frustrated.
And as I share in the video. You can take a BJJ technique or adjustment that is perfectly fine and change it into something negative just by the mental state in which it was executed.
I go into more detail in the video, plus I talk about the absolute most important thing to consider when you’re rolling in BJJ.
This is especially good for BJJ White Belts who are learning the ropes and trying to figure out what is ok and what’s not.
I hope the video helps!
