I like to think I'm pretty good as a striker, but I know I suck out loud on the ground. That's why I started taking this grappling class. I want to be a well-rounded martial artist.
I've got a little bit of grappling experience, but nothing special.
(No offense to my Shihan, he's a striker too
After going through some drills, we had a few 'live' matches. I was paired up with a guy who was about as experienced as me.
After a few minutes of us flopping around like a coule of boated trout,
I made him tap to the RNC. A couple minutes more, and he tapped to my armbar.
*Zombie mentally pats himself on the back*
Then I rolled with the instructor, and in short order, he tied me in knots.
I'm worn out, I know I'm going to be moving a little slower tomorrow, but I learned something tonight, and I had a great time.
I can't wait to get beat up again!
