Tonight is my first night of actual bjj training. I have already had my first amateur mma fight so I have had a little experience from my coaches and teammates but I have never been to a bjj gym. Just wondering what some of your experiences were on your first day and what should I expect? Phone Post

Tape your fingers... and heres a secret of the pros, dont shower before or after... deoderant is a huge no no and make sure you take as many garlic suppliments as possible this thins the blood and actually makes you quicker and faster.. but make sure you get the scented variety..and most important yell GOOD JITS! After and high fives all around, even to those who are still rolling in other parts of the gym... Phone Post

Its great your going to start your first BJJ class! You will probably feel awkward at first, and you may feel like you don't know what you are doing, but that's totally normal and we all started there. Go with the flow and in a few weeks you will start to feel a little more comfortable. The main thing is to have fun!

This.

Position before submission. Try to focus on being smooth and accurate (efficient) with every movement. If you notice that you are using your strength, let it go and attempt to just relax in the position and focus on good control. React to your opponents movements, but don't fight against him. Let the exchanges unfold smoothly instead of trying to force anything to happen. You will probably be swept, mounted, trapped, tapped, etc a billion times doing this, but by staying relaxed you can focus and learn much faster. Phone Post

I had decided to buy you a blue name out of the kindness of my heart but after that post I will ask that they reverse the transaction immediately.
