I know I'm going to get flammed for being a pussy, but whatever. I'm new to MT, been doing BJJ for a while. I have recently began sparring and quickly realized that when I was facing a larger/more experienced opponent, I would become very intimidated when they were throwing big combos at me. It seems my instinct is to totally shell up, to the point that I'm not looking at my opponent, and I end up just taking damage and not doing anything. Did anyone else have this problem? I notice when fighting smaller opponents, or people that are new like me, I don't run into that problem nearly as much. Do you guys have any advice? Is this normal for a rookie? I'd ask people at my club, but I'd rather get called a pussy by people online than in real life haha.
