This is me after my first day of BJJ. FUCK THAT SHIT IS TIRING. I have an even greater respect for BJJ fighters now. That training is no joke. So what did I go over in my first day?
- The Kimura and the Americana
- Transitioning from guard to mount
- And a whole bunch of other shit.
Coach Shannon is an awesome teacher, taking into consideration the fact that this was my first session of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu ever. He showed me a lot of techniques to use during sparring. Oh yeah, sparring. There was a lot of it, and yes, there’s a lot of rolling around with dudes. No homo. I was more nervous if anything.
I ain’t gonna lie, I’m even more tired now than was when I wrote the first part of this entry. I can barely keep my arms up. My entire upper body is on fire. I pounded down my protein shake in a few minutes, killed a beef bowl with asparagus and corn, and now I’m writing this.
I think I’m gonna sleep early tonight. Like really early.
