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!

Boy, do I know how you feel. After 15 years of AKK, I got a bit of grappling via JKD and some other sources. Enough to give me a big head - until I started taking BJJ officially.

It's good to go feet first into the unknown, though. Welcome to the club. Now defend yourself!

See ya next class, virgin.

Good for you and I'm envious. While I'm in recovering I hope you don't mind me living through your experiences. I love everything about grappling and I don't mind tapping at all as long as I'm learning. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself; have more fun for me.

I am a little tender this morning, but feeling pretty good.

I'm still riding the emotional high that new training gives me, and I keep mentally running through the drills I learned.

Can't wait for the next class!


See ya next class, virgin.

Aww, come on, Matt! I at least count as a debutante now, don't I?

Welcome to the beautiful world of BJJ. Enjoy it and the injuries that come along with it.
Never underestimate the little guys.
