    leave your ego at the door as soon as you walk in...or else it's gonna be more then just a humble experience.

    when i first started Goju-Ryu 24 yrs ago my instructor made me sit in the ready position(knees bent sitting on feet). this cuts off blood flow and slows down ur heart rate. it also hurts like hell after 2 hrs on a hard wood floor. i stood up to spar and fell flat on my face. could feel my feet at all!! Endurance to pain was that lesson.

    Suck it up and take your ass beating for the first 6 months. About the time you've become convinced that you're never going to get any better a new group of people will join the school and you'll put the smack down on them. Then you'll realize that you've been learning all along.

    Just don't give up...nothing worthwhile is easy to obtain.

    Jog everyday until then. Go at least 2 miles, but aim for 5 miles in one session.

    Anaerobic is much more important than aerobic conditioning. I can't run long distances for shit, but I don't gas when sparring/rolling with anyone in the gym.

    Run interval sprints if you are concerned about your conditioning. Your endurance will skyrocket by itself if you train HARD regularly.

    good advice, the interval sprinting is very key for good cardio for fighting

    well is tomorrow the big day? or Tuesday?

    Have you been running at all these past few days?

    If you've never done any fighting before, don't be discouraged. It was weird my first night, but I quickly learned. Just do what they tell you to do.
    I've only had "fun" twice at class (and both of those nights were doing the clinch) but it does make you feel good at the end of the night.

    Enjoy!
