This is a design for a Jiujitsu Training App I want to potentially build. As I am still learning Jiujitsu I am still working on how to improve myself so these may not make sense. Hopefully over time I will be able to make an actual app out of these notes.


  • Weak position to strong position
  • Find ways to go from weak to better.

        • Weaknesses
        • Where is opponent taking you?
        • Where are you open?
        • What are the unknowns of where you are going?
        • Where do you want to go from where you are?
        • What endgame can you get to based on current positions and what are the minimal moves to get there?
        • What is the weakness in my technique?
    • Orient
      • What is my Alignment score?
      • What can they do to further remove my alignment?
        • If you leave yourself open their range of moves are wider. If you limit your range of moves then you will be much better odds of creating a response attack. So the whole objective is to limit your opponent’s range of moves while giving yourself the opening to inflict your damage from your moves while eventually getting to the point where your opponent submits.
