    If it's only been two weeks since you quit smoking then you're still in the hard part of kicking the addiction. Personally quiting smoking made me such an ass-hole that at least one old friend stopped talking to me and a lot of others avoided me until I settled down. My take on this is that it's a combination of your temper being out of control because you're still breaking the addiction and the fact that your conditioning is significantly below the base-line for the class. My guess is that if you keep at it you will eventually be in good enough shape to handle the class and that will take care of the problem. Snake does have a point that this is YOUR problem, not the class's.

    Well I'm new to this forum and once again I'm disappointed by peoples attacks on each other.
    At our Judo club we teach our kids a code of conduct, COURAGE, HONOUR, MODESTY, FRIENDSHIP,
    SELF CONTROL, POLITENESS, SINCERITY. If our kids can go by these surely a bunch of adults can grasp them.
    Remember if you have nothing helpful to say then use self control and say nothing. I'm all for debates but when things get personal it's time to move on!

    Thanks

    You asked for advice from us about treating/avoiding bruises. I (and several other posters here) made a sincere attempt to provide good advice to you.

    I did not ask for advice from you - about how to post here, or about anything else. As such, your post is unhelpful, and so you should follow your own precept and keep it to yourself.

    And I appreciated your help in the thread I posted, you and others gave me good helpful info and that is what it's all about. No one attacked me on that thread for my posts, thanks

    We are at least being SINCERE.

    Nothing against Romp but he has a few things he has going against him (weight, age, out of training for a while, kicked a smoking habit). The water thing is silly and I see no problem having a sip during training but when you're on the mat you listen to the instructor or leave.

    Romp - You should get a month gym membership, get back into a healthy mode of living (drink lots of water, exercise, eat well, no smoking). By then it will be autumn and you can get back to the BJJ. Get a med cert for a month and give it to the club so you don't lose your $$.

    Please note that you're quite welcome to ask more questions about physical training, diet, and health in this forum, so long as you've 1) reviewed the sticky threads (they're the ones at the top of this list) and 2) made a reasonable attempt at research (e.g. using the search function, maybe visiting Wikipedia or Google, etc.).

    However, there is an appropriate time and a place for metadiscussion about the nature of Bullshido. This is not it.

    There were two personal attacks in this thread. Both attacks were leveled by the OP. So, lecturing people on their response is your prerogative.

    Thins is, you'll get marginal support if any.


    If you are disappointed, you are going to hate this website.

    That is probably because you didn't argue with an instructor and then anonymously e-mail the Senior instructor complaining about the way a KNOWN competitive club handled their snack schedule.....after soliciting advice on a website.

    And I don't recall anyone giving the advice "anonymously e-mail the club owner and complain about his instructors".

    Here's a novel suggestion:

    Quit trying to prove the Blue Belt wrong and start trying to prove him right.

    You will only be a better man for it.
