    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I'm gonna try the BJJ now

    Well, I had a few days to think, and I've decided to try out the BJJ stuff. As said before, classes are way cheaper than the other school (going for $195 a month), the guy doesn't have people getting there knees broken like in the Judo school, and the class ends when we want it to. Typically the class runs from 8-9, but sometimes will go as far as 10:30, and once 9 rolls around we are free to go, or stay and train. I got out of there the other night at 9:45.

    The class I attended was small, not sure if this was everyone (I doubt it). There were 3 other guys and a girl, plus me and the teacher. We started on doing some techniques, then went into free grappling. Me, having almost no experience in grappling, pretty much got my butt handed to me. Rather than my partner just beating me over and over, he actually gave me a chance and I managed to get into the position of an arm bar twice, ankle locks 3 times, and put him in the mount a few times. Once I got to those, I had no frigging idea wtf to do next.

    Then we did a drill where we kicked the heavy pad doing Muay Thai kicks and then locking the partner or something. Yeah, seemed pretty cool that he was teaching Muay Thai (a little, not a whole class).

    And then finally we did the free fight drill. Basically one person is the BJJ guy, and the other is a boxer/kickboxer/grappler who has some big boxing gloves on and beats the crap out of the BJJ guy. The BJJ guy is supposed to stop them and have them pretty much in a position where he or she can no longer fight, and take minimal blows. Pretty awesome cause the people wouldn't sit there and "tap tap tap", they would run in with the arms wailing like a sissy street punk does and throwing wild punches, or occasionally getting in good shots like a boxer. Most of the time, the grappler would only get struck at most 4 times before putting the attacker down. Sometimes only one punch would connect before the attacker was on the ground and in a position where he could not fight.

    After that class was dismissed and I left.

    Tuesday is gi night, and Thursday is no gi/Vale Tudo night. I need to order a gi now, which I know where I am getting mine.

    Be careful, though. Grappling is more addictive than crack cocaine. Once you start, it will consume your life (and give you funny-looking ears, but that's being addressed in another thread tonight). And no, it doesn't give you the ghey. Unless you. . . naw, never mind. . .:)

    I've lost my girlfriend, my job, my house, and my dog, but just the high I get by finishing someone is well worth it.
