I started Gi BJJ on 8/12/2010. I had only done a class on showing bjj positions and exercises before that. No rolling. So on 8/12 I started classes, didn't get to roll that night but did at an open mat two nights later. I've been studying hard and showing up for every class work doesn't conflict with (about 6 classes now - 5 gi, 1 no-gi) I finally pulled my first submission today about 2-2.5 weeks into training. I was so psyched after losing so many (every) time before. We were rolling and I passed guard successfully in free rolling that time too, eventually he ended up in my guard, I pushed an arm out and was going for the triangle...before I could lock it in he started to stack me - hard. I remembered something we learned two classes before where if the triangle fails you can still get an armbar when they try to stack. I reached in, grabbed his lapel - pulled him into and the away from me in a "V" motion and secured a standard armbar. Had it held tight but he was holding out, took my hips off the ground and scored my first sub. I was psyched! Still pretty pumped about it. I rolled with 3 other guys and promptly had my head shrunk to normal size again. I love Jiu-Jitsu. I have enough time in my new Gi to finish the review on it too.
