Solo Drills for Grappling & Functional Mobility

Last updated on 04.05.2020 by

Drilling is one of the best ways to improve your Jiu-jitsu skills. The drills in this video are something you should be doing on a daily basis. Before manipulating another body you should master your own.  

If you are struggling with a particular technique due to mechanical or physical restrictions these drills, when done on a consistent basis, will make you mobile, flowy, better mover, improve coordination, build muscle memory, help with recovery and conditioning.

You may think solo drills are boring, but how committed are you to BJJ? You can always find excuses not to train because you don’t have the equipment or a partner. These drills can be done anywhere without the need for another body. Hotel, meetings, parks, during your lunch break, and school.

All of the movements are great, but if you are not familiar with some or not able to perform a number of them, leave them out of your routine for now. As you progress in your BJJ training you will know when the right time comes to add them back in. Remember, Jiu-jitsu is about progressions and regressions. Don’t rush the process.
