First things first, I know I cannot compete with the BJJ teen diary but I think Im gonna do this in a very different format compared to the other diaries. Its going to be a real life account (maybe a little bit of dramatisation). I think it will be useful to people thinking about training in BJJ but want to know what its like when starting off as a noob. I also think it will be useful to higher ranks and instructors who may want to know how a noob receives and interprets the basics. I will leave it up to the reader however to distinguish between the satire and the honest truth.


I do alot of stupid things and as a result lead a pretty humorous life, which hopefully will lead to some entertainment in the journal. I think it being true will make things more meaningful. To add some extra spice there shall be pictures! and maybe even video!. Anyway I just wanted to put this out there so expected flames will be a focused torrent of hate rather than shotgun sprayed abuse. But am genuinely going to put alot of effort into this.

I swear I will actively look to choke out any ninjas I can find.

Day 1:

Dear Journal,
Tomorrow is my
first Brazilian Jiu jitsu lesson and I feel that excited anticipation just before starting training after a long lull. In preparation I have considered doing some exercise and stretches but have instead decided to write a journal. Exercise doesnít feel right unless Iím paying someone alot of money to tell me ďyou can do it!Ē and other motivational catch phrases. So after some scouting I have found this man!

Andy Roberts - Recently awared brown belt.

Who I have chosen for a few reasons:
He can do this:

[FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3][COLOR=white]Roger and Royce like him, which is good...I think.
He runs his lessons in the same town I often frequent (Guildford)

He has a great record (77-16-01) and competes in MMA
Since I had to stop training last year due to trying to save money and moving away from where I was training I have lost all of the fitness that took blood sweat and tears to get. Which in fairness wasnít even that much. I would like this journal to catalogue the fitness benefits even basic MA training can bring, specifically BJJ training so journal I present you with this hefty bit of man porn.

Look at that hourglass figure..., the tan lines are the result of many many hours of playing cricket. Notice if you will the wonky nips, I donít know why...I really donít. As my training progresses I shall update you journal with more pictures. Then when I ambush Helio while his on the shitter and choke him out I will be famous and can sell you to Playgirl.
The training location is 2.5 miles from the train station so Iíll get a nice warm up jogging there. This could possibly be a bad idea but I am sure itís the more interesting option. It includes a mad dash over the A25 at rush over, if I can dodge a car I can dodge an arm bar.

As is customary when starting training, I am already envisaging how I will be the best student the teacher has ever had and will be instantly rank skipped. I plan to make this a reality by never ever tapping even if the instructer is demonstrating on me. And to use every trick I can to beat whoever I roll with, judo knuckles, covering their mouth with my hand, oil checking and even gnawing. My sparring partners will respect my enthusiasm and buy me a beer for my efforts.

Till tomorrow journal!

You look disgusting.

I commend your bravery. You posted a picture of yourself knowing full well you look like that. It's all good though, man. At least you didn't get fat. Maybe all that cricked has done you well.

How long have you been doing BJJ?

Also, you're going to have to bring it if you want to even come close to the quality of the diaries that have been going.

Hmmm, I see you are a V-neck man. I myself prefer the traditional rounded T,
but each to their own..

Good luck bro.

p.s. am not being a c*nt but, you seem to have missed a bit shaving.
Most MMAers shave their vital areas, you might want to consider that next time...

Today will literally be my first BJJ lesson, the diary is in real time :D. But yes having really enjoyed the diaries I know the standard is set very high, and that backlashes are swift and unmercifull i.e TKD ricky diary. As this diary is more factual based its not going to be able to compete with the crazy ninja hunting, garbage eating chunning of the others. But I think it can offer abit more depth so the comedy will be appreciated at a different level.

However thats why I am putting so much effort into it, which is why I include the pic. I think pictures will give it an extra dimension. Plus Im not a wuss, I can handle any abuse I get here cos Im out of shape. Thats why getting back into training is important to me.

But yes, next update is tonight after training. And to be fair this wasnt a bad reception :D.
