It took me quite a while into being a white belt to realize the importance of grips, I would just let my opponent have any grips they want and am up getting wept or choked. Then while watching high level grapplers roll, I realized that one guy REALLY wanted grips while the other guy REALLY didn’t want him to have them.
That being said this video from a Judo Olympian sheds light on how to get the job done.
