Thanks to the technical detail we've been spoiled with, the Labs@Fighting Fit has organically evolved into a physical chess club of sorts. One of the most common phrases I hear on the mat is "of course, that makes sense!". Also, when I look around me after showing small technical adjustments (to quote Rener Gracie "the make it or break it detail") I often catch people smiling, like a light just went on or a veil was pulled off their faces.
Don't get me wrong, I’ve dedicated months and years to working top game maintenance and would still rather be on top than play guard (and even there, my main mindset is sweeping and getting to top!) but when you’re going over you’re going over and there are two things you can do:
1. Sigh, tense up and curse (or even worse, complement your partner on his strength and explosiveness!)
2. Move your hips so you land in a more favourable (for you) position
