Jiu-jitsu players will tell you that a lot of things make their art special. The leverage element that offsets weight differences. The technical, detail oriented approach to techniques over speed and strength. But really what makes jiu-jitsu special is that it can be practiced at nearly full intensity everyday of the week.*
This means that if you aren’t rolling (jiu-jitsu parlance for sparring) you aren’t taking advantage of what makes jiu-jitsu special. But how do you get the most out of rolling?
