Hi there! Steve Kwan here, from BJJ Mental Models. I have a question for you…

Be honest now! 😅

If you're like most people, you've probably never thought about your Jiu-Jitsu gameplan.

Sure, you've got a few favorite techniques...but you've probably never made a conscious effort to build a BJJ strategy. And that's probably reflected in your results.

You need a strategy based on systems and mental models that are proven to work. And that's where The Gameplanning Series comes in.

The Gameplanning Series is THE FASTEST way to build a Jiu-Jitsu gameplan that gets you REAL RESULTS.

With The Gameplanning Series, you'll learn to:

Clarify your goals.

A victorious gameplan means being completely honest with yourself about your goals. Gameplanning Series lesson #1 guides you through the process of clarifying your goals, which will become the foundation of your gameplan going forward.

Make the most of your natural attributes.

The Gameplanning Series acknowledges that we all come into the game with different attributes. Lesson #2 identifies your key attributes and uses them as the basis for our strategy.

Build strategies that funnel to victory.

Funneling is a core concept for gameplanning. It’s all about forcing your opponent to play the game where you are strongest and they are weakest.

Fine-tune your gameplan for performance.

No gameplan is set in stone. Learn when and how to tune and optimize your gameplan over time.

Adapt when things don't go according to plan.

As the old saying goes, no plan survives first contact with the enemy. In the fifth lesson, learn how to adapt your gameplan on the fly when it’s not working as expected.

Integrate new techniques.

The best in the world are always looking to innovate and expand. Learn how to adopt best practices and novel tactics into your grappling arsenal.

Prune out what's not working.

Great gameplanners know when it’s time to abandon what’s not working anymore. In the final lesson, learn how to identify and prune techniques that have outlived their usefulness.

Our community is saying:

“A developed, systematic, and scientific approach to Jiu-Jitsu. Especially as the sport continues to evolve and expand exponentially into new realms of complexity. It's like cheat codes to help you understand Jiu-Jitsu specifically if you are an experienced athlete or coach.”


“I love the conceptual approach and how they break things down. It answers the why and elevates how you play the game into a more strategic level, rather than tactical.”


“Matt and Steve talk about BJJ in a way that I’ve yet to hear before. I’ve gotten answers to questions I didn’t know how to ask and from this, I have fixed holes in my game that I didn’t previously understand. Their scientific approach to the game of Jiu-jitsu has added an entirely new way for me to understand the positions, transitions, movements and submissions of Jiu-Jitsu.”
