Key to success in MMA
At an amatuer level and professional what do people feel is the key to being a good well rounded fighter.
Brazilian Ju jitsu
A little bit of each or finding a dicipline to be your main base?
No right or wrong answer just wanted peoples opinions
bit of everything but you need a strength as well
belly button lint
questionable taste in music
Dive desperately for low percentage submissions as your A game
an inability to change levels without bending 90 degrees at the waist
rep a traditional style/background for your success without ever using any of its techniques
even more tattoos
develop own style called lightning uber Jitz
in all seriousness tho:
fit the training emphasis around the fighter, play to strengths and shore up weaknesses. an ability to throw/takedown is a vital component for any gameplan. if you plan to win standing with strike you will need to be able to keep it there, ergo takedowns skills are a must to use them in reverse. for ground and pound or submission an ability to takedown and end up on top will also be essential.
