    Typical cheapskate eurotrash. Take him to a restaurant and watch his head explode when he finds out he has to tip.

    You will probably only just start to get the hang of it after 6 months. You have to commit. And that's 50 bucks a month don't you whine. That's a good deal.

    Work on the RNC, guillotine, and arm triangle. Those are basic chokes you can cycle through depending upon your position.

    That seems precisely backwards; if you can't do anything to a journeyman, that would prove that there is something there to learn.

    It seems to me like you're only in things to get validation; a supremely dysfunctional mode of thought (as we have seen).

    I believe 100% I can pull it off with a little bit of persistance and coaching to avoid pit falls,

    You don't get it. Going through different combat system stems exactly from curiousity in whether or not I have potential, even talent in them. I am one of those guys who can't stand being an average bloke at something and just get my ass handed to the god gifted folks. I am super competitive. I just need a little confirmation and then I'm ready to dig deep

    It's hard to be completely prepared for the numerous ways it can be defended though. Taking the back is really hard just so you know. But you're right, if you give it enough time you can do it. It's my go to sub.

    If that's not arrogance, I don't know what is.

    If you mange to tap a blue belt on your first day it's because he either let you do or because you had the luck to face some insanely untalented guy who got his pity blue belt by training long enough without learning anything.

    It'd be great if you tape it and show your achievement here.

    It fits here, but it applies to pretty much anything you post really.

    I don't know if there is trolling involved here but from personal experience i can say that even a couple of months of training can make a difference. I started grappling only 2-3 months ago and there are guys that started 6-7 months before me that can easily deal with me. I present some problems for them but i can feel it in their movement that they know what they are doing. When rolling with blues or purples the best i can hope for is not getting submitted if i go 100% defense mode :D

    And what's wrong with that? Who doesn't seek to be special?
