    Gracie Tampa in less than 2 hours...looking forward to getting tapped out 100 times in an hour...lol...

    My boy Shane Primm is an instructor there and told me to bring a cup (which I did)...how many of you wear one while training?

    Make sure after every move they teach you ask them how it will transition into the cage.

    Just remember that your strength is your greatest asset while applying submissions and whenever someone tries to submit just use your muscle to stop them

    my only tips are breathe and relax. and stick with it through the first few months of being banged up and mat burned.

    hope everything went well, GT has a great program there. there are a ton of other options for you if you want to check other places around. there's now 3/4 great bjj places within 10-15 mins of each other here.

    :cool: I checked around a little bit and heard that it doesn't get much better than learning from Rob Kahn...plus one of the instructors is a good buddy of mine so he and his roommate convinced me to get back into martial arts

    my biceps fuckin' hurt though, lol

    Definitely wear the cup all the time. And yeah, you will have tons of "fingerprint bruises". Usually on your wrists, biceps, and thighs.
