    Last night I was running transitions with a guy that was a serious nerd. Been doing BJJ for 3 years, 200 lbs, my height and the guy would go beyond the drill every fucking time. Then sit there and talk about becoming a jedi master and how cool star wars was. :greddy:

    We'd do full mount to transition with the bottom person on side, just to get used to getting your knee all the way up to the bottom person's head and the other foot into their hip. Well anyways, this guy would then proceed to try doing stupid arm bars, locks, etc while we're supposed to be drilling.

    I beat him up a little rougher than normal when we were rolling just out of frustration, but I don't want it to happen again. Is it lame to ask my instructor not to match me with him even though he might be the only one my size?

    did you try suggesting you stick to the drill until it's time to roll? that's what I do. :dunno:

    How many guys roll at once per class?
    In my school I am lucky its small... we usually have groups of about 6-15 per class... My instructor has a 0 tolerance policy if you are talking when he is or fucking around on the mats its "get down and give me a 100 pushups or get the fuck out of my gym"... He walks around and watches us the whole class.

    I would suggest you mention something to your instructor if it continues after you talk to the guy you roll with... I mean you are paying money to learn BJJ not learn to be the best jedi master you can be!

    My normal reply is:

    "Dude, quit fucking around, I'm trying to learn this shit"

    Then again this rarely happens to me.

    i have a partner that is like that. When we drill, lets say half guard moves, he underhooks me and clamps my head as hard as he possibly can, driving his shoulder right into the middle of my face. Let me also mention that he sucks in terms of rolling. I usually go extra hard against him and get him into a painful sub like a toe hold or bicep slicer.

    Werd, I choked him out when we were full rolling after that.

    he's all "How long have you been doing BJJ?" me, "3 months"

    How do you not get stuck with that guy in the first place? There's only a couple guys my size so it's slim pickings.

    I have guys in my school like that but worse, like they will legitimately hurt you durring drills. I'm talkin dispocated shoulder, popped elbow the works.

    If we get paired up i give the instructor the look (instructors are typically from the Pro MMA team so we are pretty tight beign that we sweat and bleed together) and they move me on to someone else THANK GOD!

    on occasion i like resisitance in my drilling just to work the move under a lil pressure (50%) but not 100% till trainin time.

    just tell the guy to stop fuckin around. and if he keeps givin you shit, make him take a nap next time your triangle him. or just hodl it a bit after the tap. let him knwo why you did it.

    I had a dude that wanted to be a tough guy. a noob wanted to power bomb out of my triangle. he picked me up the first time and dropped me, i opened up and transitioned ot armbar. he tapped and i let him know if he picks me up and slams me again in the gym he will take a nap and it will not be pleasent. sure enough, another triangle and another attempted slam, i got about 6 inches off the ground before he went to sleep, he woke up with an abrupt slap to the face and me reminding him what i told him. he never tried to slam me again but he alwasy tried to get rough with me. he quit a few weeks later.

    I don't think I've been there long enough to put anyone in their place, and I surely don't want to incite bad blood.

    nothing says 'fuck you' like fist choking and rough crossfacing, but not hard enough to make him tap.
