Hidden Jiu-Jitsu Mastery Series vol. 4: Advanced Interleaving for Creative Mastery
We’ve now come to volume 4 of the Hidden Jiu-Jitsu mastery series.
By now, you’ve been introduced to how to integrate concepts like spaced repetition, deep practice, deep attention, retrieval practice, association, and interleaving into your Jiu-Jitsu.
Today, we’re going to focus on a smaller series of movements, so that we can introduce advanced interleaving practice.
To refresh your memory, interleaving is the practice of rapidly moving between topics or pieces of information to increase the abstract understanding we have of each of the pieces or topics.
You might practice interleaving by switching back and forth between different solo drills.
Or you might practice interleaving by changing the order in which you practice different techniques or drills so that you can’t rely on a memorized pattern.
But there is an even more powerful form of interleaving, that leads to true mastery lightning fast.
And that is systematically playing with the order of different elements within the same chunk of knowledge.
For example, if you are practicing advanced interleaving with a specific Jiu-Jitsu technique, and you are used to using a right handed approach… you might mirror the technique and practice it left handed.
Or, if you’re practicing an escape from a right handed opponent, you might have your opponent mirror their attack with their left side and practice the escape that way.
Simply by making the effort to mirror the technique will give you a deeper understanding of how it works because you will be building each piece individually in a new way you’re not used to.
With these solo drills, the application might be... if you always start the sit to spin going one direction, start in the other direction.
Or if you’re used to alternating one rep to the left and then one rep to the right, try two right and two left, or two right, one left, one right, two left.
Speaking of which, here is today's video.
You will notice there are only 2 solo drills in this series, and that is on purpose, to keep it simple to play with this new concept.
Of course, as you review the other solo drill series you've learned so far after this new series, you could play with interleaving the order and direction of your solo drills as well.
In case you need a refresher…
