| | Another first day of BJJ class thread
My God man, what can I say. I got WORKED.
I came in primarily as a wrestler thinking that would get me far but boy was I wrong. The first exercise was working on getting out of mount. Whenever I mounted someone it took them a long time to get me switched. The problem was...whenever I was mounted there was nothing I could do but struggle. There were a couple new guys there with me and I was able to switch them over while mounted fairly easily. The guys with experience on the other hand were a different story.
One guy I struggled the entire time trying to get him off. He was giving me tips and helping out and I switched him a couple times with his help. He just kept moving when i moved but it's like he wouldn't move with me. If I attempted to wriggle around to much he would just let me which would get me set into a rear naked choke.
I got put into an armbar a couple times...a kimura a couple times...a triangle once...and a rear naked choke more times than i can count. Strangely I loved every minute of it. I'm exhausted. Learned a lot on my first day. Wish I could piece everything that happened clearer than this but it's to much to type at this time and i'm dead tired.
