    Im 58 years old. I started BJJ 2 years ago. No grappeling / wrestling experience. 160 lbs. The first school i went to , the first lesson was omoplates and gogoplatas ,to advanced for a newguy. Every day i got killed. I went to another school, same ****. I then found a school that taught the basics. For a year all i did was drilling to have a good guard, and different ways to pass the guard. He said just do arm bars from guard and mount plus leg tryangles the first year. He taught basic sweeps and escapes. This instructor is 47 and a gracie black belt with 15 years in the game. He said you learn from drilling. I have been at it twice a week for 2 years. I roll with 25 year olds. Some time it gets frustrating, but i know its a process. AFTER 2 YEARS I WENT BACK TO THE SCHOOL I WAS AT FOR A MONTH and did good. The instructor is a brown now, before he was a purple , i seen how much i have improved in 2 years.
