    I can definitely see the relationship in BJJ and the ground game. There are positions where there are many options.... It also depends on the energy that is being provided back to which way is better to go... Unless you muscle the movement.... and force it. As you get better you feel the energy and go with the option that presents itself. And when you even get better... you are feeding a certain energy to have your opponent present that option that you are looking for. I see this happening in other spots... trapping etc... Chi Sao... certain fma drills.
    After you drill so many times... things become natural... it just happens... Awesome feeling when you dedicate the time as a martial artist developing skill and seeing it happen by itself.

    Poteet was a student of Inosanto. There are many families of JKD. But to get the most from jkd it is best to train fitness, agility, speed, and interception. All of which will require time moving and jumping around a bit.123
