The proper base/pressure and relaxing thing is something I mention constantly to beginners....

 

Maybe not beginners, most of the time I won’t really be super proactive about helping someone until they have been there for a while.

 

Man that sounds like it was a great time....to be the only white belt there, classic.

 

they were so welcoming also.....none of them thought to not help me

all of them were teaching me something

 

i learned proper combat base and base squatting for posture retention

 

I also learned single leg ankle take downs

 

I still need to learn to relax.....my endurance is shit

Dope thread! Been really interested in joining a BJJ or Muay Thai gym over the past year, just waiting to hit some fitness goals before I commit effort anywhere else.
Does anyone have any tips for recognizing if a gym is junk or not? I have one pretty close to me but I can't be sure if it would be a decent place to train or not.

the teacher, also called a professor, has to be a nice person

 

i know that sounds wild pussy.....but trust me when i say that this shit is important

 

if the teacher is an asshole, don't even think about that gym....in the long run, that shit will just turn you off to the art or make you quit early

 

there's nothing mystical about bjj....in essence, it's just wrestling

if the teacher starts talking about mystical magic shit, fucking bounce

 

you might get curious and ask where he professor got their black belt or ranked belt from

if you do, make sure you can verify by calling the person they mentioned or at least the gym they got belted from

Hurt my knee bad (MRI status) March 31 and just got back on the mats last week.

 

My movement sucks but I still hold it down decent.

 

I think we are having promotion in July - dude was saying we have some Black Belts coming. I dont really feel like I deserve it despite Brown for 3 years.
