    You just got to hang in there and practice your technique. I was also a target dummy for about three months until I started submitting people who were going full throttle. It helps to train a little every day. Even if you are not at the gym or school, you should run or drill (shrimps, hip extensions, sit-ups, push-ups, etc...) for 30 minutes - 1 hour on your own to increase your conditioning and reflexes.

    I have been training no-gi for about 8 months now and with a gi for about 3 months too.

    you're going to get your ass kicked for a long time dude. it's a very competitive game. get used to it... but soon enough you'll be tapping out the noobs.

    What else do you expect? Everyone is still going to suck after 2 weeks, and for some time after. It's not just you, don't worry about it. Just look at it as extra reason to train.


    I've been doing it about 10 months now.
