I have dabbled in this over the last 3 years or so, but I've never found a school or trained consistently in it. I am from a very small town, so basically a bunch of friends and myself would study and roll with one another. Ive been living in a bigger city now for a few years and I'd really love to get back into this. I always loved the competition and the science of BJJ. I still remember a lot of basic things but I am slow at it and not very good *obviously since not training consistently.* I know of a few schools where I live, but I am kind of shy and dont really feel confident because I dont know what to expect. So I want to ask the vets on here a question: How do u view a new student when they come in and what can they do to gain your respect? I feel a little intimidated to be honest walking into a place with such hardcore experienced practicioners and I want to learn and become part of the team. I have really good people skills, Im very respectful, I have good natural strength and great cardio. so any advice on how to go about finding somewhere, and what I should do once I check it out and possibly join?
