Hey guys, I've been training BJJ for about 8 months now, progressing nicely and I have my first grappling tournament in two weeks. I was very excited about my prospects until this week.
On Friday I was feeling a little under the weather but I went to train anyway, and during rolling got paired up with a guy that out-weighed by a good 40-60 pounds at least (I have been cutting weight for tourny weight class).
I was tapped 5 times in five minutes (no big deal, training is for tapping). During our last roll I got on his back and instead of putting my hooks in, I foolishly crossed my feet. He cranked the shit out of an ankle lock and I'm out of commission for a week.
I know I will be alright to compete in two weeks, but I feel like all my confidence to compete are gone. I keep replaying the entire session in my mind. I never put up much resistance, I was just rag dolled. This never happens even with big guys. I know I didn't feel 100% but I shouldn't have done that poorly against another white belt.
This ever happen to anyone training in combat sports?
