    Randori Questions

    Just got the 2nd stripe on my white belt and am looking forward to
    getting my 3rd so I can start rolling at my school. Just
    wondering if anyone had any insight on tips or pointers about
    preparing for Randori at my level. If you had it to do over again, what
    would you have taken more time to learn better before starting Randori
    (or what did you spend a lot of time learning prior to Randori that you
    felt served you well when starting out)? What exercises or conditioning
    would you have done differently (or did you do right)? Things like
    that. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. My next stripe is still
    at least 3 months away, so I've got plenty of time to prepare. :)

    You do BJJ, you have two stripes, and haven't rolled yet? What school do you go to?

    I rolled my second day (albeit it was a small class). Others have rolled within two weeks tops.

    Something isn't right. 3 months away? Dude, seriously, what school do you go to?

    Nothing can prepare you, by the way.

    Also, most BJJ don't call it Randori. I nominate this thread for GM

    I don't. I want to know if this guy is a troll or a misguided "Gaijin Jiu Jitsu!" practitioner.

    War Phalange,

    I go here:

    Interesting that you guys feel so strongly that my school takes so long to get people into the Randori. Yes, that's really what we call it too. :)
    http://www.bjjboulder.com/adult/classes.php

    The way I've been given to understand it is that they want people to have control before they are allowed to participate in an uncontrolled environment. My instructor has said things like at this stage you should be learning technique and not heavy resistance in an uncontrolled environment "if you can't go soft, we're not going to let you go hard", he's said.

    All that said, I mean, I have done quite a bit of high-resistance rolling in more controlled situations. Working with someone with opposing goals (me trying to escape side control and take the guard, them trying to move from side control to mount) for instance. I've rolled with the instructors in a basically uncontrolled setting before, but I guess that's about as close as I've come in the first 4 months. Is this just a totally abnormally small amount of rolling?

    I can underestand a school doing this. White belts have a reputation for being overly competitive spazzes that hurt themselves and others. As far as your first question goes...

    Tap early. No ego in training. If you get caught, you get caught. No ego in training. Rolling/Randori is not compitition. No ego in training. Learn from your mistakes. No ego in training. Notice a pattern?

    Edited to add: Looks like a good place to train too. High ranking instructors and the top guy is a Renzo BB. Nuff' said.

    Yes, it is an abnormally small amount of rolling. I remember rolling in my *trial class*, and the idea of not rolling even before you get your first stripe seems a bit silly to me.

    To be honest, why can't any of the older students be instructed to take it a little easier on a begining student?

    Another thing, why is a blue belt listed as one of your instructors on the main page?

    A good blue belt coached to coach by a good coach is perfectly capable of teaching newbs the basics.
