When going against another grappler of equal skill... If they're balls to the wall, does that mean I have to be? Who controls the pace of the grappling match and why? Thanks, J

J, When it comes to matching speed for speed, you can either: 1. Match their speed for a short period of time. 2. Play a slow and defensive game. Matching their speed for a short period of time to gain a superior position is a good method of gaining an advantage and then using position to slow them down. Playing a slow and defensive game, until you can find an opening to use the top game to slow them down is also a good way of grappling someone who consistently fights "balls to the walls." However, for both of these to work, you have to have extremely good positional skills. Your mount and side mount escapes have to be near perfect. Your guard passing and side mount hold down skills need to be at a high level. Roy Harris
