Thanks a lot man. I do a lot of running and cycling and I've had to work quite a lot on my breathing for those, so hopefully that'll help! Thanks for making me aware of it though, I probably wouldn't have thought about it if you hadn't flagged it up.

I started taking bjj at the beginning of this year, so I have been at it for two months (been doing Judo for 2 plus years). Wow is is it different then Judo. I like it though b/c we work more on ground technique, which is less high impact then Judo (mainly throws)....
Cheers for the reply Miz, real awesome advice. Good ground battles have been my favourite aspect about combat sports for a good couple of years and I've been looking for a class to join for a while, so I'm really excited for it now.
The reason I won't be rolling with black belts just yet is because the class I'm attending is a novice class, and the instructor has said I should attend these for about 2 months before joining the standard/advanced classes, where experienced rollers will be.
I'm quite flexible, I can get both feet behind my head, so I'm hoping this will come in handy when it comes to having a high guard etc! haha

Brilliantly put, my man. I try to avoid having an ego, so I don't think I'll be afraid to tap. The way I see it, if I tap to something then it's because I did something wrong, and the best thing to do is to try and work out why and how I got into or was put into that position, and try to make sure it doesn't happen again. As you said, it's a class, so I'm there to learn, not prove anything to anyone.
I can't wait for this class guys, I'll let you know how it goes, thanks a load for your help/advice/tips/encouragement!
