    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    BJJ advice from a BJJ noob with a striking background: Its not like striking, where you can hold your own if you are tough. You will tap and tap often because you simply don't understand how to react to the moves you see. And its gonna be frustrating when you don't get subs, especially if someone with a **** load of athleticism and/or natural talent starts at the same time as you and advances much quicker. Since you'll be developing alongside everyone, you'll often question if you're making any progress at all.

    But remember that everyone is improving, like bacteria continuing to adapt to increasingly powerful antibiotics. And at some point you'll roll with a noob, or someone who comes very inconsistently to class, or whoever else, and you'll realize how vulnerable the average bacteria is to your battle tested antibiotics. And you'll feel pride not because you squashed a weak bacteria- or at least you shouldn't- or because you are a badass- you aren't. It'll be because you know your antibiotics used to essentially be placebos, and now they aren't. Thats improvement. Or natural selection. Or... something or whatever.

    PS: Keep your elbows in, posture up (fucking triangles), use your hips, and don't spaz in rolling.

    You're not a true addict, you only came to two classes last week.

    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.

    From kyokushin, this will be your friend:

    I cross train at an MMA place sometimes, and I've actually found that my Kyokushin makes me do little things which befuddle the MMA guys (until they figure it out). Also, I take WAY more leg and body pain at Kyokushin. These results may not be typical, but I'm just saying...

    I think it is cool that you try new stuff.

    There are no tips to prepare yourself for the classes, just take them. :-)

    Try to learn as much as you can and get back to us with your experiences. Good luck and enjoy.
