Been doing BJJ a little over 3 years now with Master Pedro Sauer. So I guess I started about the same time this thread was made! It has been awesome for me both mentally and physically. I think as long as you keep the attitude that you are there to learn and have fun and check your ego at the door you will do well. As long as you keep going and getting in that mat time you are guaranteed to get better. Starting out is really tough because you have no understanding but once you get a few hundred hours on the mat you start realizing you are in a physical chess match. Once you have committed moves to muscle memory and you don't have to think while executing, you just think and your body does the work immediately, things start getting better.

Someone was asking about how well BJJ can condition you. I don't do anything but BJJ and I get about 5 hours of mat time a week. I haven't even went for a jog in years. I just got off a cruise where I gained like 3-4 lbs because they make you eat on those things! Anyway I went out and ran 5k no problem at all. I wasn't booking it or anything but still ran around a 27 minute pace. Not bad for not running in years and just walking outside and running 3 miles in a reasonable time.

Same things with weights too. I have a nice weight set in my basement that I don't use (lazy). When my schedule won't let me get in my mat time though I will do some weights though. Normally I do more cross-fit type exercises on the rare occasion I do weights but the last time I tried some bench press I still was able to put up 275lbs (Im 6'1 175lbs).

Long story short, BJJ is a great way to maintain your cardio and your strength. Not to mention BJJ will give you core body strength which is real applicable strength. Gym rats find they are not as strong as they think they are when they try grappling (unless they doing a cross-fit type program).

Just keep your head in the right spot (humble and eager to learn and have fun), tap early and often, and respect your training partner and you can't go wrong. Forget this though and BJJ can give you SERIOUS injuries. Don't be the guy walking in thinking he is going to overpower everyone in the club. Some people won't be as gentle and you will walk out with some sprained joints or worse.

^ Great advice. Pedro Sauer is legendary. You must train at One Spirit then?

Do you compete at all or just take BJJ for fun?

I sure do! The new location is awesome too! I mostly just train for fun. I might do 1 or 2 tournaments a year.

It really is a privilege to have Pedro Sauer so close to me. Not to mention all the outstanding BJJ practitioners he draws to his school (it isn't uncommon to see UFC fighters dropping by the class once in a while either).

If you are ever in the area make sure you drop by!

Trial by fire. Hit them instead, they should learn how to hold fast.

I think Master Sauer does 2-3 weekend Seminars a year at either OSMA or Jeff Gordon's MMA so you can probably at least sign up for those. They normally announce them at:

www.pedrosauer.com

He usually has some special guests with him too, last time Rickson Gracie came out (I think Pedro is one of the only guys who can get Rickson to come out of Brazil more than once or twice a year lol)

One of the biggest annoyances there is! Granted newbies need to learn somewhere/sometime, but sometimes it's not so nice being the one to teach them. I never mind helping them out, but the that just don't get it.....

If you watch a bunch of pro trainers, you'll see how shitty they hold the Thai pads. I see it on youtube all the time.

LOL! I feel like I've almost (or have) pulled a groin muscle trying to kick a pad that someone moves in the last second.

Hate this... a few years ago my buddy was working with a kid new to the gym, the noob freaked and moved the pad at the list minute and my friend's foot caught his elbow. His foot swelled up like a grapefruit.
