    2-5 months I'd guess depending on your athletic ability.

    As a WB you should concern yourself primarily with surviving. Learn how to relax when you're in trouble and find/make room to survive and improve your position.

    Don't worry too much dude. I was getting smashed for ages (a few months) then I slapped a sub on someone and was surprised, the next week I slapped several on and thought I was awesome, the week after that I got smashed again and continued to get smashed. Just keep trying to improve position as said before.

    do you know the basic subs? as long as you know them try to concentrate on the basics of positioning and surviving like vorpal said.

    tbh at my gym for a long time i was the lightest by about 15-20kg (33-44lbs) so i really was the ragdoll. i focused achieving minor victories like maintaining guard, escaping hips or sweeping and gaining top position. Once it comes together then you can start using your subs

    Worked for Korean Shotokan.

    To the OP: wait till some new guys come in, you'll be surprised what you've learned. While it may sound cliche, it's true: work on position. Get good position and subs will follow.

    It's true. If you can hold position really well, and you only know one sub from that position, you'll get it eventually. If you know a thousand subs, but can't hold position, you'll never get any.

    Res is right, eventually you won't be a newb anymore and there will be other newbs. You'll get to sub them.
