Learn a technique and study all its aspects including set-ups, grips, body position, timing, balance, counters and recounters. Get help from your instructor, class-mates, the internet and instructional media.
Repetition makes you smooth. Smooth makes you fast.
Isolate the technique in sparring. Start with the smallest,least experienced person in the club. When the technique works consistently, move on and try it on the second smallest or second least experienced person. Repeat.
In grappling, observe problems you encounter with the technique. Then take time to analyze, brainstorm and discuss with coaches and training partners. Test solutions with more live sparring.
