    it will come with time man, remember that black belts r just white belt that didnt quit, sooner or later you will begin to pick things up, be aware of positions, and what submissions or escapes you can do, you will be aware of good and bad posture real fast, and start using your hips correctly, thats when rolling gets fun, and when sweeps get easier...

    aslong as your in a good gym, legit you will progress just fine, no matter how out of the water you feel... go to tournaments, seminars, trips that your school will do to brazil ( most schools with linage to brazilian instructors have annual trips to brazil), hell even get private classes once in a while if ur gonna miss a few days or want to drill a move or make your armbars dangerous, nothing better then a black belt to step up your game.

    remember the only way to get good is with mat time, the more the better, bjj is awsome man, and hard as hell.

    You didn't really answer his question. Hes saying if you have no clue what you're doing, then what do you do when it comes roll time? Like just let the guy whip your ass? Obviously not, idk much about rolling, so someone else will have to answer this question.

    so, ive been thinkin about practicing MA, i'm still a college student and i have never done MA before. Just thought learning something new, when i only got 3 days of classes would be nice. I searched around my Univ, there are some MMA gyms and other more specific MA gyms like Judo, boxing, BJJ. I was thinking maybe i should focus on one MA first and if i like it, try out MMA. I'm still torn between Judo, BJJ, and boxing. I fear that it will take long time to advance in Judo and BJJ, and be stuck with little kids learning simple repetitive routine for a long time during the low belt stage... with boxing i feel like i will need alot of guidance in the beginning, and it feels like most gyms around here are more for sole purposes.

    Anyone got tips on chosing what (the size of the gym, MA choice for newbie, and teacher) when you are starting out for the first time?

    what are the actual rules when rolling?

    i had my first bjj lesson yesterday and at the end everyone was rolling and i was asked but said no, (there was a couple of other new people who also said no so i didnt look out of place) as i didnt know anything about it. I dont know the rules to it, how you start, are you supposed to make the other person tapout like a proper fight, if you're about to get submitted are you allowed to do absolutely anything to get out of it?

    Here's my advice when rolling: Since you're new, you don't know much. Your partner should help you out when you make mistakes. But say you get put into a submission, you can try to find a way out, but don't get a sudden burst of energy and try with all your force to get out, just tap. Then you will learn what you did wrong to get put in that situation and you will avoid it. Remember learn technique before you try using too much strength. When you roll with bigger guys in your class, and you have sloppy technique you won't do ****. But if your technique is good, you will be able to roll them over w/o a problem. Also, ask for advice. Like after you tap out, I'd ask how I could have avoided that.

    Compression shorts if you got em, no biggie, mouth guard/cup is also optional for your first day.

    Basically since its your first class theyre lax about what you need etc.

    If you sweat a lot Id def recommend bringing a shirt to wear under your gi. I dont know how people dont wear a shirt underneath. My undershirt soaks up mad sweat and I use it to wipe my face of sweat.

    Got a question. Do you guys use MMA gloves or boxing gloves for your kickboxing/boxing classes? Also, do you guys use knee and elbow pads when doing kickboxing sparring, and if so, could you direct me to some cheap ones?

    What's up MMA brahs! I'm new to everything relating to MMA and fighting, but i'm starting to get interested in it. I've search all around google to find good schools in Jacksonville, Fl. I just need your more experienced opinions on which option I should choose. I want to learn ground work and Muay Thai in both options.

    To be honest, I'd lean more towards that Gracie BJJ school. World Martial Arts doesn't look like it teaches anything predominantly well. But I've never been there. That was just me looking at the sites. Why don't you go in and take a trial class from both places? That's what I did. I must've went to 8-10 schools before I made my decision

    Yea I think I'm going to do that. The only reason I consider the WMA is because the owner/instructer is best friends with erik paulson, so erik comes and does seminars as well as fighters like Sean Sherk.

    Yeah but those seminars are few and far in between. And usually cost a good amount. I'd be more worried about the day to day teaching than seminars

    boxing gloves.

    dont use knee pads, and we never spar with elbows. theres ways you can spar gently with knees, just use the inside of your thigh.

    this is really intriguing, and i'm thinking of checking out a few mma gym's in my city

    but BB is my first love, and while I'm not huge nor do I want to be I'm at a nice size and would still like a little more mass. I don't want to sacrifice too much of my BB training for anything else

    why are people saying it's hard to do both?

    is it because size is a hindrance?

    There is a lot of talk about rolling in this thread, but i think there should be more of a focus on repetitions. This is especially when you first get started. Do reps of whatever your instructor is teaching during class, and when everyone else is wasting there time rolling for an hour, rep some more. I'm not saying never roll, but if you focus more on repetitions you will advance very quickly.

    Get a pair of "combat gloves". They are sweet. They have much more padding than mma gloves but they fit like an mma glove so that you can roll and spar(lightly) with them. When i'm sparring someone I only simulate elbows, and i throw knees lightly or simulate them. Pick a partner that looks like they have a lot of control and are very experienced.

    Between Judo and BJJ, I'd recommend Judo. Judo share a lot of the same fundamentals as BJJ as far as ground work, in fact in BJJ there are a lot of references towards Judo. The Advantage that Judo has is that you'll learn how to take a fall. Being in a few BJJ schools, I've seen a lot of students take a fall the wrong way and getting the wind knocked out of them.

    I disagree completely. They do not share the same fundamentals as far as groundwork. I'm not sure what bjj school you went to or what judo school you go to, but you are pretty off. In judo if you get pinned it's counted against you. In bjj you learn various gaurds and fighting from your back as well as top. You also learn takedowns. In judo you learn throws, takedowns, and some submissions(nothing compared to the extent of BJJ). When i went from BJJ to the few judo schools ive checked out, while the fundamentals of throwing was EXCELLENT, it was like devolving as far as ground work.

    I respect your prerogative but, my main emphasis was being able to take a fall. Judo teaches that the best.

    i can imagine that some size will not hinder you but a large amount would. It is also heavily cardio and it would take a lot more to bulk up if you are training mma often, i'm just having an educated guess here btw im sure some1 else will answer aswell
