    I am hands down the weakest adult in my bjj class. The only people I am stronger then are the kids under 18 who are too big for the kids class. Yet I am a blue belt. You need to learn how to deal with bigger guys. I bet you are spazing and struggling instead of relaxing and using your whole body together to keep your opponent off balance and defensive.

    Now go ask your instructor to watch you spar and show you where you need to work and stop worrying about your blue belt, it doesn't make you any better at bjj. The guys who beat my ass before I got my blue belt still beat my ass, the guys who's asses I beat I can still beat.

    5471, if you don't care enough to type out an clear question, I don't care enough to keep it in Gitmo.

    Like a few others have recommended, I suggest asking your instructor what you need to work on to improve.

    are you one of those people?
    OMG, that guy's brother trains with me!! Can he not sit flat footed in guard because his ankles hurt? Does he lay on the mat after working light guillotines because of the ultra pain in his neck? Does he never shut up in class? Does the smallest bump when changing position cause cries of pain that evoke an un-anesthetized amputation?

    I say there is one guy like this in every school, sometimes they split up and you have the "talk talk talk" guy and the "I am hurt here and there and you can't go knee on belly etc. but I will totally bull rush you as long as I am on top or not in danger of a sub" guy.
    Sometimes you lose and sometimes the other guy wins.

    At this point I don't owe anybody an explenation.

    Schools I trained at:
    Lotus Club Cetepe Liberdade Sao Paulo
    Renzo Gracie NYC
    New York Combat Sambo

    He actually put it in DHS first, but I moved it to Gitmo. Figured you could decide what to do with it from there.
