Seeing in to the Future

In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, occasionally you can tell that something bad is about to happen. For example, look above. The goal is (as far as my pea brain has figured out), to be able to anticipate those bad things, and do stuff to make them not so bad, or anticipate them and avoid them all together.  They (the Internets) say that training, and training, and training, makes it easier and easier to see these bad things being set up.  As far as I’m concerned, I think I need one of those thingys in the back of my head like on The Matrix, so I can have all the anti-bad stuff techniques uploaded directly in to said pea sized brain.

There’s this guy that seems to be able to armbar and triangle choke me at will.  I have no idea how to stop it.  lol.  I can’t see it coming, but I know it is.  It’s quite frustrating.  In fact, it’s gotten to the point that I laugh about my in ability to see it, or stop it in any way, shape, or form.  Training with him regularly has allowed him to improve his ability to get these positions on me, but has not allowed me to come any steps closer to stopping them.  I find it queer and unusual.  I tweeted Renzo Gracie and asked him if he’d ever trained anyone, who no matter how bad they wanted to be good and how long they’d been training for, just couldn’t get it…  He didn’t reply.  lol.
