    Today is my first day of training at my MMA school. I'm really excited, do any of you have any fond memories of your first day?

    I meant my instructor and saw some of the pictures of him training with Helio, and getting his blue from Royce in '95. Thats when I realized that jiu jitsu is something i want to do for the rest of my life

    Yeah, today is a grappling only session, but, yeah. It sounds like it's gonna be a lot of fun.

    It basically confirmed to me that this is what I wanted to do. I learnt a lot and everyone for the most part was very receptive to a beginner with a wiliness to learn. I guess the type of first day that I'm sure most people would want and appreciate.

    I haven't done MMA, but my first night of BJJ went much the same as Horrendous.

    I remember my first day pretty vividly. I had just gotten done doing a few months of kenpo karate, and I had no idea what I was getting into when I started at my new school. I wanted to take judo, but I couldn't find anything near me so my friend referred me to a place that was close by. I went and I had never even heard of bjj before, and they got me started that same day. I never felt so out of place in my life, I had never wrestled or had any grappling experience. I never really watched the UFC or MMA prior to that, so I had no idea what I was learning. I don't think I remember ever feeling so beat up in my life, even after being in a lot of fights when I was younger. But I loved it because it was so hard, and something that was so new to me. Now I can't stand to miss a single practice.

    All you guys' stories are getting me really excited. Hopefully I don't get hit in the mouth, but i'd like to feel rough afterwards. I'll be sure to post how it went afterwards.

    I just had my first BJJ class last Monday. It was outstanding! Eventhough I got tapped by a 16 year old kid like 80 times, it was definitely fun. One thing that I realized after about 5 minutes of rolling, was how disgusting and horribly out of shape I have gotten. Man I was sucking wind. Never puked, but felt like I needed to a few times.

    And here I am two days later, and I feel like I've been hit by a truck. I love it! Can't wait for my next class.

    I booted red gatorade in the bathroom after practice... had no idea when I could relax and when I had to hustle, so I burnt myself out and ended up hugging the toilet.

    I remember back when I was kid in the old days. I had to walk 7 miles to the gym and my shoes had holes in them. Stay hydrated and stretch. More importantly, have fun.
