The Matrix is an application designed to help Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athletes fast track their improvement and help them get more out of each session. It incorporates knowledge from instructors with over 20 years of teaching experience, practice methodologies from fields such as music, art and formal problem solving loops helping them achieve mastery quicker.
We created a system that develops an understanding of the relationships between techniques allowing people to develop and effective understanding of BJJ. We catered to different body types and experience levels from beginner to expert.
We drew on practice methodologies and philosophies from music, art, athletics and from close consultation with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Instructors with over 20 years of teaching experience to help develop the problem solving flow. In its essence, Evaluate — Select — Execute — Reflect. This flow informed the UI elements presented at each stage of the experience.
We designed our UI to help people intuitively understand the positions and the relationships between these and certain techniques. They are guided to assign effective techniques to positions and can commit to focus objectives. This allows people to develop an effective understanding known as a "game" faster.
