I fell for the meme
>my body is undertrained after a long break from gym
>decide to join BJJ for getting stronger and to improve cardio
>join first class
>gets thrown in the wild rolling without knowing shit
>all class is double your size
>"muh strength doesn't matter anon"
>taps out every minute bc they all go full retard and you want to avoid injuries
>body is getting weaker and weaker from the prior sessions
I fell for the bjj meme
I just signed up a couple weeks ago with zero knowledge as well and had the same experience. I'm not a little gay who cries about it though and I'm just trying to get better. I've yet to win a match, but that's to be expected considering my opponents have 1+ years of experience. I'm sure if we keep going there will be a payoff
the thing is I don't train with +1 year of experience ppl but with people who just started with me or maximum 2 months ago, i'm in the beginner class
so you would likely get injured because of ego and 0 technique from both ends, would have no problem to train with blue belts and such but that's not the case
Its an ego thing. Ive been doing mma for 3 years, and every time I get injured/injure someone, its with beginners freaking out and going from 0 to 100 real fast.
I just dont spar with beginners anymore, not worth it.
If people are genuinely going full retard strength on you as the new guy, go to a different gym that isn't full of chucklefucks.
Unless of course you are the spaz, genuinely trying to submit people whilst knowing fuck all how to do it.
The ones at my gym definitely go pretty hard on me. I only know a few techniques and that's all I will attempt on them. Is it really spazzy for me to try and get a submission? Should I learn more about submissions before going up against someone again?
Do you understand proper defense? Do you know the basic guard passes and escapes? Or do you go full retard and stab everyone's thighs with your elbows? And what do you call "injured"?
grappling actually takes strength. even striking takes strength but less so. everyone who competitively fights MMA has some kind of strength routine
>All class is double your size
And what size is that, for reference?
i'm a skinny 55kg they're minimum 80kg except for the teenager full of testosterone trying to prove something but he's more jaded than I am training 6 times a week
exactly they lose against other partners, they will ego revenge on someone weaker to show dominance
I get hurt going easy on beginners because I'm not going to stomp on a noob for 5 minutes staight. I often drop to 10%, letting them work. But some spazzes out and just goes hard. Usually I tell them to take it easy, because most people dont stay calm when getting punched/strangled and I get that. But it still stings when you're being playful and your face gets hit by a real straight. After telling the noob to slow down for the 3rd time I just say fuck it and load my strikes, hits fast with feints and crank my chokes.
I know we all started as white belts, but rolling with them once youre blue belt or above is absolutely the worst fucking thing ever. especially as a blue, you get the hungry white belts who want to prove their ready, thats when they hurt your ass doing some stupid shit.
Smurf please, you guys are at the peak of the dunning kruger curve in BJJ. Blue belts have zero issue going full tard on anyone who's a white belt and they feel any threat from. I don't care though the ones at my gym are manlets and I just overpower them when they act up. I'm a lifting black belt.
You a firefighter or something? That’s an active911 alert in picrel
yeah im career, i just screenshot the funny calls.
I used to wrestle and saying technique is more important than strength is manlet and lanklet cope. If you take two people of roughly equal skill and have them wrestle the stronger opponent is going to fuck up the weaker opponent most of the time
You need to eat more and lift weights. You also need to fucking learn BJJ and stop being a crybaby
>getting my guard passed
Learn guard retention
Getting beat up for the first few months is just a part of the journey, unless you wrestled or are an athletic freak. Start problem solving. If your partners are being genuinely dangerous (i.e. not letting go when you tap, throwing their body weight around recklessly), just don't roll with those people.
I tried to bulk, couldn't due to digestive problems, so say fuck it I won't wait all my life to do sports, that's why i joined, but now i'm taking care of my issues after seeing the doc, i am under antibiotics right now
so crybaby for sure, just thought it would be easier first couple of sessions and got progressively harder, but it's the opposite like skateboard, appreciate your recs though
The only meme here is you. You're skinny and weak, and wonder why you're getting steamrolled in a combat sport. You won't have any fun there regardless of how much technique you think you're learning as long as you're a malnourished child fighting with men. Lift some weights, and eat. trying to detach the sport from your own physical conditioning is a retarded cope.
Answered the wrong post.
I found I didn't gain much power in BJJ besides grip strength (especially in the gi) and some core stability. I have stronger ankles, calves, and shoulders from butterfly guard/frames, but it's almost unnoticeable in any other environment than rolls.
If you want to develop more power, you should check out wrestling or no-gi BJJ instead. It's far more explosive and anaerobic for better cardio gains too.
If you need further proof look at natty wrestlers physiques (NCAA, Olympics, etc.) compared to juiced BJJ physiques (ADCC, IBJJF). The top BJJ guys need to bodybuild on top of juicing to remain competitively strong/muscular meanwhile wrestlers typically have powerful physiques naturally due to their training. The proof is in the pudding, learn to wrestle and don't be a guard pulling fag.
Sometimes if you have great technique you can beat a stronger opponent, and sometimes if you're really strong you can beat an opponent that has better technique. However, if you are weaker and have shittier technique, you're fucked
Nice. Take the die for israel pill next, podcast-listener.
