Starting at American Top Team
i just had my first bjj day, went to an open mat session early in the afternoon and then a beginners class at night, my feet look like somebody spilled acid on them. Anybody else suck at their first day? i felt like giving up
everybody who ever did it sucked on their first day
Don't give up!
Haha, I still get big assed blisters on my feet and I've been doing jiu jitsu for awhile now. Keep going and you will do awesome.
thx for support guys
leave your ego at the door as soon as you walk in...or else it's gonna be more then just a humble experience.
dude I got manhandled by a 16 yr old girl who is 125 lbs soaking wet on my first day. don't feel bad.
well at least she was in the same weight category as you
The first day is always the hardest. Don't give up.
i puked after sparring the first day
when i first started Goju-Ryu 24 yrs ago my instructor made me sit in the ready position(knees bent sitting on feet). this cuts off blood flow and slows down ur heart rate. it also hurts like hell after 2 hrs on a hard wood floor. i stood up to spar and fell flat on my face. could feel my feet at all!! Endurance to pain was that lesson.
Suck it up and take your ass beating for the first 6 months. About the time you've become convinced that you're never going to get any better a new group of people will join the school and you'll put the smack down on them. Then you'll realize that you've been learning all along.
Just don't give up...nothing worthwhile is easy to obtain.
24 yrs ago? How old are you now?
Hell the first day of any kind of sport is always the hardest.
i wish i could train at att
Jog everyday until then. Go at least 2 miles, but aim for 5 miles in one session.
Anaerobic is much more important than aerobic conditioning. I can't run long distances for shit, but I don't gas when sparring/rolling with anyone in the gym.
Run interval sprints if you are concerned about your conditioning. Your endurance will skyrocket by itself if you train HARD regularly.
good advice, the interval sprinting is very key for good cardio for fighting
well is tomorrow the big day? or Tuesday?
Have you been running at all these past few days?
If you've never done any fighting before, don't be discouraged. It was weird my first night, but I quickly learned. Just do what they tell you to do.
I've only had "fun" twice at class (and both of those nights were doing the clinch) but it does make you feel good at the end of the night.
I dunno what kinda training you're doing but I have fun bout every class
o and don't be like 99% of the people who quit after a week
