    yea, fuck a coach and school. Go on the net to learn, you'll be tapping BJ Penn in no time.

    I think he was just pointing out your not going to get good off learning advance techniques you see online. You need time, and practice to get good at the things your coach is teaching you.

    Everyone who is there that is beating you has been there longer and is probably beating you with moves coach showed them, and has beaten into their head. They know what your going for as soon as you start moving. Best thing you can do is concentrate on the things you know.. try to make them work. Being good is a mind set, not a technique.

    I think you better ask your instructor that question. Sometimes the online or video style won't suit you. The only sweep I know is the Pendulum Sweep and it only works 20% of the time for me.

    seriously dude. If you've have 4 classes don't focus so much on new techs. Drill a lot, and free train even more. You need to teach your body sensitivity to movement and balance. Just roll man, try new shit. I'm sure heaps of people here will disagree, but i think experimentation on the mats is one of the most important things on the mat. Get your own style happening. Find out what works for you. You don't want to end up as one of those ertenal white belts with an encyclopedia of technical knowledge, but barely any mat time, who can tell you how to do the latest x guard sweeps, but can't pass the guard of someone on their 3rd class. Well, that was exagerating, but I'm sure a lot of you know the type I'm talking about

    what clubber said. just get used to rolling and how your body moves. learn the basics before getting crazy with the techniques.
    basically if you are in the closed guard you want to posture up. if you have full guard you need to make sure you oponent isn't posturing up. ask your coach he'll be glad to show you and this is why you pay him.

    you have a great coach, find the specific problems you have and ask him about them at the end of class, hes a wellspring of grappling knowledge.

    Yeah dude, you're going to get your ass kicked a lot when you start doing BJJ. But just don't give up, and keep trying. Ask questions when you need to and leave your ego out the door everytime you step onto the mat.

    You won't notice how much you're improving because everyone at your level is improving as well. It's when a new dude walks in the door, and you wipe the floor with them with nyour pinky finger you notice.

    Keep training. You gotta TAKE an asswhipping before you GIVE an asswhipping.

    I just started back at BJJ after being out for 7 years. Found out I forgot alot more than I remembered.

    I had a pretty despondent green belt ask me the other night why he can't get anywhere near me. The answer -I am a competition player who trains hard, eats well and follows a strength training routine, as well as having over 15 years of experience. The green belt is a receational player who started 4 years ago & does no extra training.

    If all else fails, train harder than the other guy. Sometimes the difference between a decent player and an average player is dedication & effort - not just for a couple of weeks, but over a period of years.

    I guess I'm saying you get out what you put in.
