SSB vs. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Day 1 – @RenzoGracieBJJ #madrespect


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
  • Triangles
  • Stances
  • 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.
