Two hours at bjj, felt productive, left my ego at the door and didn't give a fuck about how shit I was = first bjj class without anxiety about being maulled. The sking just above my naile is basically gone on every finger though.
The gym now has a new system, one night will be bjj followed by a stand up class then bjj then next day and so on. I am going to just go six days a week, not kill myself and throw myself into something and commit. guys who joined the same time as me who were consistent have got their blue belts and as musashi said, once you see the way broadly, you see it in all things. Turn up, learn, tap less.
Also guys how important is core strength to the guard? I can't figure out if it is core strength or hip mobility and quickness when trying to stop someone passing an open guard, aswell as technique obviously.
edit, wrong thread.
