View Full Version : My first tap

10/09/2012 5:18am,
It's been a while since I last posted here. I came asking the usual questions about what should I train, now that I've come to the "real" side of martial arts.

Yesterday I took my first BJJ lesson with an instructor from the Spanish branch of Checkmat, Alexandre Sierra. Loved it.

Thank you guys for helping me get on track. I look back at my years of Aikido and Shaolin Kung Fu not with disdain. I don't regret them, they sure as hell taught me some stuff (and I still respect many tradition-based martial arts which I'd give an arm to learn), but this new world is where I want to be at.

My first tap came from a toe hold, by the way. Good stuff.
