BJJ Game Planner update

The game planner now features inline graph editing – This means that you can interact with your mind map directly by dragging and dropping new moves, as well as selecting and editing existing ones.

Example plan in Openmat

Editing moves

Moves in your graph are no longer linked to techniques in your move list. Instead, you can quickly brainstorm and add new techniques to your graph.

Add new node dialog

Techniques are classified as either:

  • Position
  • Sweep
  • Submission
  • Takedown
  • Pass
  • Strike

I’m happy with the changes, and this is now a feature which I use heavily for planning and identifying holes in my game. I hope you guys find it as useful as I have!
