I was listing to a podcast yesterday ( http://bjjbrick.com/ ) and the guest was Neil Melanson who ( I gather ) is a fairly accomplished MMA grappling coach. I think he used to work with Randy Couture among others. Neil made this statement that tactics beat techniques. I'm just wondering how ya'll feel about that.
I can see how tactics can beat techniques I'm just not sure how much better your tactical game plan has to be to beat better technique.
Would you say grapplers like the Miyao brothers achieved based more on technical mastery or tactical mastery?
