Tried my first BJJ/MMA classes this week...

Postby PrimeMinister » Thu May 24, 2018 8:25 pm

And I ****ing loved it! The movement in BJJ is foreign to me, but i just like it. The teaching was slow enough for a beginners like myself to grasp. I joined Fortis MMA here in Dallas. Does anyone here train or have experience with MMA, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or any other martial art?

How long did you train? Was it enjoyable and challenging all the way through?

Over a year, until my blue belt. It was, it's always a challenge and competitions are really fun. My wife and I would work on chokes and moves at home.

We both went, but couldn't at the same time, so we would work on things together. She wants to get back into it after tyr pregnancy. It keeps you in good shape, especially after 10 min roll sessions.

Record the sessions. It helps to have other eyes critique the technique.

Once upon a time, I was a pretty damn good wrestler. That was many moons ago.

Every other week or so I hit the mat wherever I can find a sparring partner. I believe that classic wrestling technique and decent striking skill is a tough out against any other discipline.

Agreed on that combination of disciplines. Wrestlers are tough as ****.

Who likes to roll around with other guys?

I always found a right cross followed up with a thorough beating very refreshing

Never made it to Fargo. The last time I competed was roughly 20 years ago. (holy **** I'm getting old :( )

I got into boxing five years ago. I love it. I find the work to be very cathartic. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I tried BJJ. Went to three classes. Suffice to say, not my thing.

I took a few lessons when I was young and spry. It has applications for pass rushing, hand fighting and such. I am far from a practitioner though.

In spite of your obvious self confidence issues; hundreds of thousands of men and women around the world study classic wrestling - because A: it ****ing works, and B: it’s a helluva workout.

A buck gets ten you’ve never been physical to that extent in your life. Ten gets a Bennie you’ve never actually hit another person in the face.

I’m betting I’m right. Because people that have hit another person in the face “to follow up with a thorough beating” don’t generally celebrate the fact. Because it ****ing hurts. A lot. Even if/when you’re lucky enough to land a shot that’s remotely close to the dream scenario you wrote; your hand is worthless for the next few days/week.

Keep being an internet badass though. It’s worked wonders for you in the past.

Ha! Well done, Rocker. Hitting another person in the face without gloves hurts like a MF, but it sounds badass on the internets.

Thirded.

All the tiny and fragile bones in your hand are tiny and fragile. It hurts to punch someone in the face, even if you punch with proper form. To do this properly, initiate contact with the second and third kunckles in the middle of your fist instead of the fourth and fifth knuckles on the pinky side. That'll spread out the force far better, reduce pain, and save you a trip to the ER for your boxer's fracture.

And never start a fight with a cross, it's too slow and obvious. Anyone with any experience will see that coming ten miles away because it's the opening punch 99% of people you meet will throw on instinct, likely a product of conditioning from too many movies. If your opponent is seasoned (the only kind of opponent to really worry about), he will slip your cross easily and make you pay in the aftermath.

No offense but look no further than a guy who took a few mma classes to be the initiator and too busy running his mouth to see he’s about to get knocked out, and it’s never hurt my hands.

A cross only works consistently as a sucker punch so I think we know what particular type of ***** Stewie is.
