Q. Thank you for the Lesson - again - with such good substance. Are there scenarios where survival is possible without submission. I imagine it is and will observe and hope to hear your views on this question.

A. Yes, control can be an excellent form of submission!
Q. WOW WOW !! I am a blue belt stripe 1 from Marcello Tolentino Under Evanri Gurgel, Brazil Curitiba, team Arena BjJ HERE IN montreal! and this is revolutionary! Thank you Ryron! That mindset is what jiujitsu is really is!

Q. This video is gold. I have watched it three times now. Every time I watch it, my time on the mat becomes more enjoyable. Due to my smaller size, I tend to be on the bottom a lot. The survival mindset really helped me to be comfortable in inferior positions and wait for escape opportunities to come. I wish my local Jiu-Jitsu schools teach philosophies this way. But having access to Gracie University is the advantage for us online students. Much thanks Ryron for sharing this.

A. Amazing! Thanks for the feedback.
Q. I have a question Do I have to order training in order of defense, control, escape, and submission? my English skill is not good, hope you understand!

A. No, you can train in any order you like. Enjoy!
Q. thank you, riron i am very impressed your video . it is very useful and helpful !

A. Agreed! Thank you for the feedback!
Q. No questions here, just serious props. Thank you Ryron for this incredible wisdom. I have been applying the DECS philosophy into my training and I can't tell you how much more effective and ENJOYABLE it has become. I can attest to the fact that the "passive" steps do in fact set up the "active" steps beautifully. Thanks again. Very much so appreciate true Helio Gracie Jiu-Jitsu structured expertly into a curriculum that is mind-blowingly organized.

Q. I wish the CTC taught this way....there is too much MMA there. This is just like Ryron said with doing jiu-jitsu into your 90s. Competitions without being celebrated for how survival should be, THE MOST POINTS GIVEN to the compeditors, is "landing hurtful punches" to jiu-jitsu as a whole DAILY! So then the question seems to be When and how do we defend and control this from happening using "RECON" in conjunction with "trading up"?
SkrockiJ (9/7/2018 11:27 PM)
A. Yup. Thanks for the feedback!
Q. On the detailed printout, should number 3 read “Control” instead of escape? They currently read Defend, Escape, Escape, Sumbit.
