Compression shirt or Rash guard under Gi for BJJ
Martial Talk » Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
by Guillotinelover06
2M ago
I’m newer to BJJ, I’m only a white belt, and I need advice for what to wear under my Gi. I usually wear compression shorts, and a T-Shirt. I don’t like the way a T-Shirt feels under my Gi, I was looking into buying a rash guard to replace the T-shirt. I already have a Nike Pro dry-fit compression shirt, but I was wondering if there is a big enough of a difference between a rash guard and a compression shirt to spend $20 bucks for a new rash guard that’s made for bjj. I just don’t want to... Read more ..read more

The rough guy

2M ago
This is kind of a vent, kind of a rant, maybe a bit of an "AITA" type of a post. We've got a guy at my gym that goes pretty rough. Yesterday I finally had enough of his crap, tapped mid-roll and walked away. Told Professor I'm not rolling with him anymore. The final straw was when (after he had elbowed me in the face and kneed me in the back of the head), he said, "Quit complaining, nobody else complains, it's only you, you're just mad you're getting beat by a white belt." Plenty of... Read more ..read more

Reading new people is hard

Had a new guy last week. I got partnered with him on his second day. A general rule of thumb I've seen is "tap them 3 times, then let them work." This may have been a bad rule for me to follow that day, because we were doing lightning rounds. A purple belt told me to teach him something. Unfortunately time was over. My understanding is that 3x rule comes from the idea that if you don't at least let someone know that you are capable of smashing them, they might assume the gym has... Read more ..read more

Different wristlocks and different responses to wristlocks
Martial Talk » Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
by skribs
3M ago
I've been working on wristlocks a lot lately. Trying to apply what I learned in Hapkido to BJJ. One thing I think is interesting is the very different approach both arts take to what I would consider to be the fundamental wristlocks of the art. In HKD, wristlocks are typically made by going 2-on-1 on the hand and wrist that you're attacking. A couple examples from a thread I posted a long time ago in the HKD forum: ... Read more ..read more

Double leg Takedown leg strengthening exercises?
Martial Talk » Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
by Talisker
4M ago
Could someone possibly offer some suggestions on the best exercises to increase mobility and leg stength to do the double leg takedown. In particular, the move where you fall to one knee. So for the double-leg takedown, you start in a horse stance/surfer squat stance. You then fall to one knee for the front knee to the ground. You swing around the rear leg to behind the other person's leg and bring them down. I have great trouble falling to one knee from a surfer stance. I just don't seem... Read more ..read more

Podium promotion pessimism

Someone competes in a tournament, wins gold. While standing atop the podium, their professor gives them their new belt. My gym has seen this. My gym has done this. We had a 6-year-old girl get her solid gray belt on the podium, and a 40-year-old man get his purple belt. We've also had multiple folks lose a match, and then the winner went on to get promoted. This includes blue belts who lost to a soon-to-be purple, white belts who lost to a soon-to-be blue, and gray belts who lost to... Read more ..read more

[Funny] What did we do on Monday?

I missed class this Monday (to check out a TKD school in my area). At my school, M-W-F is gi, Tu-Th is no-gi. We often do the same stuff in both gi and no-gi, but just as often we'll do something different. I get to the kid's class to help out yesterday (Wednesday). Professor asks a purple belt, "What did we do on Monday?" Purple: "I don't remember." Professor: "Me neither." He then asks the other blue belt coach (purple belt's brother). He shrugs. I wasn't there, so I shrug. One... Read more ..read more

Pick your shot - where do you start?
Martial Talk » Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
by skribs
7M ago
New game we've started playing in BJJ is Pick Your Shot. The game is simple, one player is the "top" at the start of a 2.5-minute round. They get to pick the starting position. Live roll, once there's a submission, reset, top player again picks their shot. After 2.5 minutes, switch top/bottom, the other player gets to call their shot. Your shot could be something simple like "mount" or "side control." Or it could be a 90%-locked-in submission. You get to pick your shot, where are you... Read more ..read more
