    Just to be clear, a professional fighter is offering to help you with your technique. Regardless of whether or not you're worth teaching, you would have to be an idiot (and a disrespectful one at that) to turn him down.

    Stop. We had a friend do this **** and we lit his ass up. This is dumb. Stop whining, quit being an emo crybaby and man up.

    Someone offered to give you help. As you have been told multiple times, in many a thread, he is retired pro fighter. He is willing to give you some pointers.

    IMO you need to quit rushing your progress. It sounds like you want instant gratification. It isn't going to happen.

    Yup, this is a fine example of one of the biggest psychological traps in ma's.

    You start out sort off thinking: ' hey, throwing a punch and kicking some stuff, how hard can it be?'

    Until you find out it's way more technical then you had anticipated.
    Then you go from ' hero' to ' zero', only like 1 out of 10 people turn out to be a natural, but 8 out of 10 start training with the idea that they are a natural.

    It's ok, dont get discouraged, toughen up mentally and meet up with Omega.
    Getting skill is about stress and frustration tolerance, you have to beat yourself, and keep hanging in there even when you get the feeling you're not getting anywhere.
    In time you will.

    Don't give up.

    You are right. It's better to feel self-pity and go EMO because you didn't get the "yay! awesome dude!!!" you were expecting and disrespectfully decline a free offer from a pro fighter. That is much better than getting the chance of getting actual tips FOR FREE from someone who was gracious and courteous enough to offer some help and meet him in person.

    Yep, you are absolutely right about that. Feel sorry for you for now, and then go back to your wave master. If this is how you are not just on this, but in general, you will go places dude.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    You just disrespected not only everyone who tried to offer you advice, but everyone who currently trains you, or trains with you. You are wasting everyone's time, and wasting your own. Stop this, now. Pull your head out of your ass and listen. Keep disrespecting the Universe with your vanity and it will find a way to crush you. It takes much less work to be humble successful than it does to be prideful and fail.

    I'm locking this because it is getting weird now and clearly not about Striking Technique anymore.
