I meditated alot leading up to my competition yesterday and even meditate a little before my matches.

And i truly feel like it made a big difference. I had no nerves walking out to the matches and I think it allowed me to perform my best!

someone stream it!!

I was wondering what you guys think about drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes, or smoking cannabis or taking dabs and what (real) negative effects it has on you.

I have seen some posts where people say they stop smoking cannabis but cant drop the cigarettes and seem to be doing fine? I find this difficult to believe, but I dont smoke cigarettes only a bit of cannabis to relax and sleep. I drink an occasional beer but try to stay away from it as i hear its not good.

Or does your body over time get accustomed to being exposed to some of these vices and still allow you to perform well.

if you have any thoughts id love to hear them.

I don't drink beer often, but when I do.... it's immediately after training, it has to be ice cold, and I only drink it once I'm in a hot and steamy shower.

All I need is one shower beer after training, and I'm lit.

I might have to try this!! Do you eat first?

What do you mean, before class? Or before shower?

I eat 30-45 minutes before class. If I have a shower beer, it's the first thing after class (besides water on the ride home).

Anyone competing at the La open this saturday??

depends on how quickly you want to get better? As long as you train safely and listen to your body you can go as often as you can. I can definitely tell you your bjj will improve drastically compared to those spending less time on the mats

Or if you are planning on maybe doing a tournament your getting your body ready to really reach that next level. everyone is different, learn your body, keep doing what feels right and safe

Inverted Beast In Brazil? Il take it!

Good on ya for finally doing it! Your body withh get accustomed to the stress of training. Now just dont quit! Cant wait to hear more about your Jiujitsu journey.

Ps Put some neosporin on your mat burns, then bandaid, then wrap with tape so you dont keep ripping it open every class. Then Hydrogen peroxide and air dry!!

I’m 5’10” and 120lbs (I know I need to put on weight before everyone says it) but I feel like I’m not extremely flexible and kinda feel sluggish to move what feel like extremely long and skinny arms about. I feel like this could make it easier to injure myself? But I’m not sure.

Im 5'8 125 lbs and everyone at my gym is 60 lbs or more heavier than me. You will be sore but just warm up properly, tap early and try stretch after each session. Believe me there is no greater feeling than when you finally tap someone 60 pounds heavier than you. And buy some $40 weight gainer from amazon to take after class to help ya bulk up abit!! (what im currently trying to do)

I hope you get out there really soon bud!!

Im 5'8 130lbs. Every guy at my gym is 170+. I have been training for about a year now. Always been the smallest guy even in HS. I would just recommend for you to work on grips and controlling an opponent with pressure while maintaining balance. Learn what grips are worth keeping and when to hold on tight so you dont burn out your grips. You will always have people out muscling their way out of your sloppy submission attempts but always go back try to realize what your doing wrong and how you can do better. I would also start doing some compound work outs to increase your strength if you have the time. Most importantly dont give up! Find a higher belt closest to your weight and roll with him as often as you can!

Absolutely Fucking Amazing!! Come on people! Enough Excuses!!! Go Train!!!

I honestly feel that pressure creates diamonds I like when upper belts smash on me a few times then take the time to explain to me what I am doing wrong before continuing rolling. But if they just destroy me and give me no feedback Its not as fun.

I am a competitive white belt with HS wrestling experience. I truly enjoy rolling with blue belts who are closer to my weight (125lbs) because I feel they help me improve my game with their technicality, rather than rolling with a new white belt.

That being said some blue belts at my gym cannot stand being tapped by a white belt and they revert to using insane weight and muscle to basically stall me out while on top side which in the end basically tires us both out without really letting us accomplish anything. I highly enjoy when I am rolling with a higher belt and they take a moment to gauge my skill before moving in for the kill and keep it around that level only increasing if I "try" something crafty.

Something that I do appreciate being a white belt myself, is being taught a Lesson by Submission, any and every time I make dire mistakes, so I make sure to never make those ever again. IMO keep doing what you are doing & gauge the White Belts mentality and how quickly they want to improve, and explain after every roll what they did wrong and how they can improve!

-A White Belt Who Wants To Get Better

I really like this!! people have become wary of my triangle. Time for me to work this into my game!

Hey guys so Iv been training at a Gym for about a year now and I am pretty much the smallest dude there and they have some pretty HUGE guys that I have had to just accustom my self to train with. I do decently well with most of the white belts and have my share of battles with the blue belts. Until they have enough of me and completely out muscle me. My issue is I am planning on competing at 125lbs and I feel that I am not getting enough practice with people who are my weight and its gonna require a different strategy. Am I making a bigger deal out of this than I need too? Any comments would be appreciated. Thank you.

It should be a LOT easier to sweep guys your own size.

Thats the other thing too I cant even sweep half these big guys i roll with so im rarely getting to practice them. And of course they hit them every god damn day on me so atleast im learning how to counter them.

It will be different. Time for some open mat visits, trying to find some people nearish your own weight class?

yeah I think this might be something that I will have to start doing. Do other gyms let people come into their open mats for free?
