For all grapplers, whether you admit it or not, we all have our "favorite" techniques that we most often use to tap guys out (or break/choke out on the street). Yes, there are the rare savants who will submit 40 of their peers 40 different ways, but most of us have a half dozen to a dozen "go to" techniques. So why have the massive toolbox? One reason is it's better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it. Another is to cycle in some new techniques to be your current favs for tourneys. But the main reason is to be able to pass them all on to others and let them pick and choose their favorites for street and sport. So to anyone frustrated by learning the massive amount of techniques, strategy & tactics, etc of any given grappling system remember you're not just learning all that stuff for you, it's legacy training and what you'll be able to pass on to others.
