1) Take the fight to the floor
2) Pass the legs
3) Establish and hold a dominant position
4) Submit your opponent
Why do we take the fight to the floor? Because that’s where BJJ practitioners are proficient at finishing a fight.
Why is passing the legs important? Passing the legs means you have stopped your opponent’s most effective method of escape, and cleared their most powerful strikes.
Number three and four speak for themselves. If you are in a dominant position, you are in control of your opponent. This is the best time to attempt a submission and finish the fight.
