Anyways, I'm joining the club as a wee freshman, so there are some juniors and seniors here who have been doing BJJ for a while. I sparred with one guy, who began with, "Don't worry, my takedowns suck" in an attempt to console me, and then proceeded to have absolutely no trouble taking me down. I couldn't get any offense going; the entire time, I was just trying to avoid his grips.
It's fun, though. Really interesting sport. I'm just getting the basics down now, and trying to get back into shape after a summer of sitting around doing nothing physically intensive whatsoever.
Anyone here also do BJJ? Starting out like me? Any really good people have general tips that I can always apply to my BJJ game?
