Not sure how BJJ guys develop new skill.You don’t really need to force yourself. When I first started rolling, I only had two or three moves I could somewhat do against someone who was trying to subdue me. Over time your move set grows, and you add more to your tool belt. It’s a fairly natural progression over time.
The bad part is if you’ve never sparred before and the first time you can test your abilities is when you have to defend yourself.
A guy is good in single leg may not be good in hip throw. If that person depends on his single leg to win on the mat all the time, he will never be able to develop hip throw.
This is why when a person cares too much about his winning record, it will be hard for him to develop new skill.
