Tapped More Times Than A 5 Dollar Whore

No offence meant to you if you are indeed a 5 dollar whore…

Last evening I returned to my first full BJJ class since early June.  To be honest, I really didn’t want to go.  I still haven’t made up my mind if I want to continue with it.  It sort of seems like a waste of time to me.

Pros:

  • Great full body workout
  • Get to roll around on the ground with sweaty men

Cons:

  • I suck
  • I feel like shit after
  • I am old compared to everyone there
  • None of the people I train with are my friends
  • I have a really hard time (more than usual) sleeping at night after class
  • I suck

So class consisted of the usual 30 min of technique followed by rolling. For technique we concentrated on a new lockflow with various choke from back. It’s not too bad. Fortunately it didn’t require a whole lot of finesse because I have little of that crap. There was one pretty slick transition from back to front choke. We ended technique with some older lockflow review.

There were only 4 of us at class, so sparring consisted of 3 5 minute rounds. 1 round with everyone else. I didn’t expect too much out of myself. When you take time off, it takes a little while to get your flow back. At least, that’s the way it is for me. The first 2 matches I didn’t really do too much. I went for 1 triangle choke and 1 ankle lock. Other than that, I spent most of the time thinking about how many points am I up or down as if it was a tournament. Lame… The final match was a wash. In 5 min I was triangle choked 2 times, front choked 2 times, north south choked, and anaconda choked. I waited until I could feel that blackness overtaking me every time. That’s a lot of choking. Consequently my neck and shoulders are quite sore today.
