Podcast: Why Your Memory Isn't Reliable Under Pressure
Today on the podcast, we’re talking about the shortcomings of memory. Once a fundamental underpinning in K-12 education, scientists eventually realized two very important things about the way we taught school children.
One, we were inadvertently making memory the measuring stick of our teaching effectiveness. Two, it didn’t work. John Danaher has elaborated on this topic more than a few times, talking about how the fast paced nature of jiu-jitsu, particularly guard retention and passing, makes a technique heavy approach to the guard almost impossible. Essentially, your brain cannot process information fast enough. The solution? Simplify your training into concepts that are less reliant on your opponent’s actions.
We also give a preview of our new study that is underway now, in which we will watch and record more fights than ever before.
The High Percentage Podcast is the weekly show where we take a look at real data we collect from matches and read between the lines. We break down the game of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and submission grappling into its most basic game theory components, so we can make YOU, a killer on the mats.
