"Side Control Doesn't Exist": Is Ecological Jiu Jitsu Terminology Meaningless or Unclear? w/ Greg Souders

If you're new to the show, please sign up to the Combat Learning Newsletter at combatlearning.com/newsletter. I'll send you cheat sheets on how to transform your drills into maximum skill-building games and get you up to speed on the science of motor skill learning for martial arts. Plus, you'll never miss a show. Go to combatlearning.com/newsletter now to get those resources. The good news is that the ecological approach is gaining steam fast in the jiu jitsu world. The bad news is that the bad faith arguments and big misunderstandings are already bogging down the message. One of the biggest charges leveled against Ecological training is that the terminology around it is not just too technical but in fact MEANINGLESS. This is a bizarre accusation, but it's being repeated all over YouTube, Reddit, Discord, and beyond.Today, BJJ black belt and Jiu Jitsu supervillain Greg Souders joins me again to tackle this accusation. Greg has a very particular language he uses to describe training, jiu jitsu movement, and to cue athletes during performance. Most of it is pulled from the scientific literature directly, but all of it is inspired by his studies across Ecological Dynamics and separate-but-related focus of attention literature. Quick reminder: if you benefit from the show, consider going to combatlearning.com/support to buy me a coffee. This is a donation that supports the show and I really, really appreciate it.

Combat Learning: Science for Better Martial Arts Training
Combat Learning is about radically improving you as a teacher and learner of martial arts using the ecological dynamics and constraints-led approach to training. We explore the little-known frontiers of skill adaptation, perceptual-motor learning, and performance science for combat sports such as jiu jitsu, kickboxing, taekwondo, karate, muay thai, and more.
