I did not spend much time looking but I did not see a BJJ thread. It always struck me that there were a lot of practitioners on here. I'm noob and was looking for suggestions. I finally signed up for a 3 class trial run. What would you tell noob you?

I'm also a noob. but one thing that I learned is don't try to compensate for your lack of technique by overpowering your training partner. Relax and focus on getting the technique right, using brute force will wear you out in 10min

I dont know what a dt drop is. Is it a wrestling move? -Oly

few tips: eat right/exercise run when you don't attend class. And work on the warmups nail them down when you're not in class (hip escape, front hip escape, arm drags etc.)

uhh I would say that out of the practically useful arts it's by far the easiest to get into for the "video game nerd" demographic.

Very technical, pretty slow paced, and not that painful or physical compared to wrestling/judo/boxing.

Defenetely try to relax and dont go full musclemode, its something every1 does in the start when not really knowing what to do ur body kinda goes into survival/panicmode and just tenses up and thats when u run a bit higher risk to hurt yourself doing some crazy explosion out of an armbar or something. (not saying you shouldnt use your strenght tho but be smart about it)



Tap, tap tap alot, ask questions and dont come with anoying excuses

Dont feel discouraged for feeling like a complete retard in your own body in the start, expect nothing else we've all been there. bjj like learning any other sick skill just takes alot of time and ull probably for the first year question if ur actually learning anything cuz ur getting so smashed by everyone as they are getting better aswell. Then one day a new whitebelt walks in and u actually can see how much uve learned, prepare to feel lost many times tho "I have no idea what im doing.jpg"












Some good ranting in these short videos, especially in part 3

As a corollary to this, don't try to go fast when you're in someones guard. That's another thing I notice from new people, they will like off-balance themselves constantly by moving way too fast. Better to take it slow and focus on your base and keeping your arms together whether inside or outside.

A search brought up a classic Daut blog:

https://www.liquidpoker.net/poker-forum/1104176/BJJ_update.html

Where in the world is Ryan Daut?

Another update would be nice.

Information is awesome.

Daut is one of my heroes. I picked up BJJ after reading one of this blogs and was instantly hooked. Would be pretty psyched to see another BJJ blog update.

As for advice, lot of good stuff in here. Probably reiterating a point made a number of times already, but check your ego at the door and don't be afraid to tap. Helps you avoid a lot of injuries and creates an opportunity for you to ask the person you're rolling with what happened. Aside from that, focus more on technique, less on strength and try to keep a clear head while rolling.

Its time to stop thinking like a bitch and think smart like a poker player - ket

I have been inactive in BJJ for about a year now . Been rock climbing/bouldering instead, worked a bit better with the DFS schedule. Need to get back in soon, I miss it

Some questions:

How often do people train?

How often would people like to train realistically? As in like, what is realistic for a 30 something guy whose main goal is to just be better when I leave the mats each time?

I find myself quite sore the day after. A little bit weirdly sore that I understand why I am sore in that way from what I did but it still is different. Not horrible I can't do anything sore but like an ugh I wish I was not as sore as I am and I probably shouldn't roll today sore. so:

Any recovery tips?

Does anyone do any specific strength and conditioning stuff?

Flexibility/mobility stuff?

Used to train like 6x a week multiple hours each time, took a break for a few months this year trying to hit SNE. Got back into a couple of months ago and now I try to train 5x a week, plus some lifting and running... Which is also about how often I want to train

Used to be incredibly sore but it goes away after a few weeks/months once your body gets used to it (or even faster depending on how good of a shape you are in I guess). I think still training when sore makes it go away way faster (I know I'll be twice as sore 2 days after if I skipped one in between).

I'm about as mobile as a fridge (tightest hips ever from a life of computer use) and while I'm working on it I dont think I can offer any solid advice here.

The all around body soreness is like Tian says gonna go away after a few weeks u just gotta muscle thru it but like I told u on skype RiKD training jiu jitsu just hurts and the big one is kinda realiseing that ur body can handle more then u think and that its fine, but defenetely work on your neck. The more u can work offjitz on strenghtening your neck the better and it just takes time. Stretch after every training for 15+ work on your hips especially, wich also takes time and is just a never ending process almost for computerpeople like us, but it gets better Fingers are gonna get sore and bloody too but ur skin will get harder and it will be fine aswell.

Our laazy pussybrain is most of the time like with anything in life gonna try to talk you out of showing up cuz of this pain, that pain or this reason but the more u fight that and go u will quickly realise that u can handle so much more and its almost always better to train, unless u have a broken shoulder and a fever or something ofc.

I try to think of it and Ive noticed that for myself a minimum of atleast 3 times a week keeps me moveing forward and keeps my body on track. 4-5 times a sweetspot where ur active most of the week and your learning faster then your buddies (atleast here in sweden most people train maybe 2-3 times except for the serious guys who trains for tournaments and stuff) but anything less then 3 times feels like im slacking of too much, both with learning and also with my body. The sick thing is missing 1-2 weeks ur gonna have to almost go through all the pain and soreness again to come back in shape When Ive been traveling and training ive in periods trained 7 days a week and those months have been the best ones as u get into a flow of learning/getting stronger mentally and physically.

Best tip summed up is, just go and roll sore, ur always gonna be sore.

A quote:

" It's those workouts that you really don't want to do that are the most satisfying when they're done. If I didn't get after it today it would have fucked with me  for the rest of the day. A couple nights with little sleep and a couple drinks last night and it's real easy to go out like a bitch and skip my workout. It's a constant struggle and it never goes away. I used to think that one day going to the gym would always be effortless and automatic instead of the daily struggle between comfort and discipline, but that day never came. Some days are easier than others but there's almost always that little whisper of laziness creeping into my brain. The key is to never let that lazy bitch of a whisper win the argument. I won the battle today, so now I can enjoy the fights without that nagging disappointment lingering in the background. "
