    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Just found out what spazzing in BJJ was.

    Was rolling today with a another new white belt. He spazzed out and accidently headbutted me.

    I was enjoying the lesson but that really took the jam out of my donut.

    I had heard of spazzing before but up until now had not experienced it.

    Noobs regularly spazz out, which normally means they fight like their life depends on it. If you can't avoid them then you should always approach with caution. I normally just let them tire themselves out and normally within a few weeks they start to realise its not such a good idea using all their strength and energy in every roll.

    As a noob yourself you should try and find senior white belts or higher to roll with as normally two noobs sparring is a receipe for disaster.

    Without a doubt most of my injuries have come from white belts

    Even I just told him to relax or he will injure us both if he keeps doing it. We have a very small class, so If he comes, we will end up rolling again.

    I am in the process of getting mouthguard, might get to it a bit quicker.

    The spaztard noob is one of the most dangerous things to be found on the mat. They seem to feel like they will spontaneously combust if they let you get to a position of advantage, and will spaz out like it's an Olympic level competition if you do.

    I remind them to breathe (spaztards always hold their breath), and that sparring is not the Mundials. If they still don't get the message, I get to side mount and hold them there until they're exhausted.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Point Taken.

    It seems like this is a serious, systemic problem. If only I had known. Is this in the BBJ advice for Noobs thread? Any chance of setting an automatic message for new members who add BJJ to their style field?

    Jokes aside, I was initially going to post this in Newbietown, with the aim of catching some other beginners.

    At least your new guy accidentally headbutt you. I am a white belt but I am not a complete noob so I become a favorable target for new guys who are too afraid of getting owned by the colored belts, but wants to learn. So this new guy starts rolling with me and starts headbutting my ribs as if he's a fucking bull. I was being nice and I told him headbutting me like a bull won't get him anywhere in terms of BJJ, but he didn't listen. I ended up doing the guillotine choke repeatedly on him but I saw him headbutting the next guy he was rolling with. *smh*

    I think it's more a fact of life - literally - than a problem. I'd wager that everyone spazzes when they start - some will be "worse," than others. It's fight or flight kicking in - you realize that there's a guy sitting on your chest trying to choke you, and you don't know what to do about it.

    Learning BJJ is learning what to do instead of spazzing.

    Years ago on his first day, I had a backyard crappler repeatedly drop and try for the flying heel hook despite being told they were off limits to beginners. He did this at full speed and intent. If he had actually managed to get a hold of my foot properly, there is no doubt in my mind he would have injured me to no small degree.

    After the third warning and subsequent fourth attempt I stopped being nice. He later tried to punch me in the face instead of tapping to a choke.
    Shut the hell up and train.
