    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Did You Guys Know Grappling Rocks?

    Holy ****.....

    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)?

    YES! That's the point right? Fighting, grappling, choking, slamming, are FUN!

    I'm glad you had a good time, this post could have been me after either my first wrestling practice or my first mma class.

    I honestly thought that grappling just wasn't for me, I don't like clinching that much, and people being all up on me makes me feel bullied.

    Actually when I was younger I just thought wrestling wasn't a real "art" and you had to do something foreign sounding to be good at fighting.

    But once I got over that I still assumed that wrestling wasn't for me. My eyes are now opened and I am enlightened.

    I still prefer to spar in a gentleman jim sort of way though. Stick and move.

    The only negative that I have experienced in grappling (besides getting pinned) was a student that I was paired up with and his lack of personal hygiene skills. I understand that when I finish two hours of training, I'm gonna have an odor. This guy walked in the door smelling like busted ass.
    Other than that, I enjoy ground training.

    I am doing no-gi this friday for the first time with Bj Penn's coach Leandro, I am hoping it is in a similar format as I have been interested in learning a well rounded base of fighting. Are you going to go again LBD?

    I've just started the mma aswell and it is realy good fun.

    More fun than TKD and judo on thier own
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    I actually closed the deal with a triangle choke once, and got a guillotine later in the night. Probably the best feeling I've had in the past couple of years outside of the bedroom.
