    So I watched the movie Never back down and i thought it was going to be dumb, but found it pretty inspiring. i noticed how the main guy finished most of his fights in submission and well it got me wanting to learn martial arts, so i signed up with a jiu jitsu gym last friday. i go to my frist class today... you guys got any pointers for a newbie?

    Leave your ego at the door. Learn to try and use techniques you pick up in class while you spar. Don't just try to win with strength... being that guy too early is generally the "spazz". Just spend time in class rep'ing out technique and getting submitted during rounds for a while and soon enough you'll be the one submitting the new guys. Takes time, don't try to rush.

    I honestly hope more people see NBD and show up to the gym. I don't mind newbies so long as they aren't assholes.
     
  5. Well if you've seen that movie, it's like training for two years, at least.

    It is unfortunate that you want to take BJJ because of that tacky movie but hopefully you will realize that BJJ is more than parking lot submissions.

    Good luck, stick with it, watch some BJJ videos on Youtube for a better understanding of Jiu-Jitsu.
