    I find that BJJ progression comes in bumps. You get good at some stuff when your brain is ready

    Sometimes you suck at defending the one thing that the other guy is good at.

    Then you find a way to defend properly and that edge he had dissapears.

    I used to get passed easily and to let people have good pressure on me, letting them get the underhook easily and let them smash me. I got better at fighting the underhook, then I was able to sweep, I was not stuck on my back waiting for them to mount me. In about a week I came from being an easy prey for some guys to being a hard roll for anyone.

    40 lbs is alot. Odds are, his opponents in Mundials weren't trying to musle figure fours on him.

    It can be tough to see people progress sometimes - when you used to do things in rolls you no longer can.

    In young competitors it seems more dramatic. Sometimes they are weak at first and don't move too well. Then they learn how to move their hip, use their flexibility etc and all of a sudden they are able to defend your guard pass attempts and recover guard very quickly; and their endurance seems limitless.

    Look at it this way though TS, you gave him hard competitive rolls and probably were a part of his progression. It sounds like you want to compete though - get out there and do it, it's a rewarding and productive experience.

    I feel ya man, if I had stuck with it (not quit from injuries/divorce/dumbassed-ness/work) I'd be a black belt (or at least a brown belt) by now.

    Let it motivate you!

    No way are you perplexed at the thought of a Bluebelt medaling at Worlds because you got the best of him in training years ago when you were 40 lbs heavier.
