Did You Guys Know Grappling Rocks?
I took a submission wrestling class at my gym the other night.
Grappling is actually really fucking fun! Who knew!? Why didn't anyone tell me??
Did you guys know that WRESTLING is actually a cool art to learn?
I actually signed up for and took a few BJJ classes a few years ago, but due to travel and work didn't get to do anything other than get submitted over and over without learning much (my fault, not the gym's).
Here I took a class, and with some ringside instruction from the coach I actually had a good time.
Sore as **** now though, and my throat hurts from being choked.
Anyway, just wanted everyone to have the chance to share in my enthusiasm. I think it is the live coaching that really helped me. I didn't have to feel quite as helpless, so it was less like rape and more like grappling.
Is live coaching a normal part of the grappling experience (e.g. while you're rolling the dude tells you what you should be doing)?
