    hopefully when you sat out, you didn't sit there and pout...hopefully you sat there and watched and studied the more experience guys on how they use leverage and technique and try to pick their game apart. Bottom line, Don't be discourage just because you were told to sit out during sparring.


    btw, who do you train under?

    that's a good attitude...don't ever be discourage from ass kickings or things of what happened at your place...just use it to your advantage to further your game and knowledge.

    How big are you? Because one reason would be that the other people (especially the newbies) are smaller than you and the instructor saw you from other classes just muscling them around or that you're really aggressive. Don't get me wrong, its nothing bad, its only your 7th class and you'll eventually learn to calm down and relax if this is you.

    Don't get discouraged man, at my bjj school, they make the newbies wait at the max. 6 months before they can even start rolling. I know to a lot (Edit) that, that sounds like a long time but man, you should see these guys when they first roll, they have perfect technique (for the basics) on the first day of sparring. (I, fortunately was allowed to go roll on my first day due to my previous experience :naughty:)

    6 months :eek3: i don't think i could stand that long without sparring with anybody, about being bigger than the other guys, I'm 6'3'' 235lbs so i'm one of the bigger guys there, and i do usually just throw everybody around (which ends in me being subbed by 120lb guys :o ) like you said i need to learn to stay calm, but as soon as i panic i try to muscle the other guy around

    damn wish i had known it before i signed up with larry, i mean he is a really cool guy and everything, i'm just guessing i can get better instruction from a black belt than from a purple, no?

    btw where is it located?

    yeah...not to bash on larry...but him being a purple belt was one of the main reasons i didn't sign up..that and its kind of expensive there...i think they just bank on the gracie name

    we also have a brown belt lionel perez...i think he's gonna get a black belt soon

    i think you can learn plenty from larry though at this point

    the place is around regency mall area
