Although 50/50 is not a new position it reflects an evolution in the ever changing jiu jitsu game and strategy. Look for a repost on 50/50 by Ryan Hall. Coming soon. At Worlds 2012 I noticed that the higher level belts were opting for this strategy as opposed to the smash and grab game. Initially it looked like a useless options and more of a stalling technique. However after watching several matches, especially among the women, I began to appreciate it as a positional strategy. Some have called for it to bebanned. I totally disagree and see consider it a offensive option that opens up a whole other level of game end strategy. It still may be a little ahead of it’s time for some. Fifty/fifty is here to stay.
