So yesterday's class marked exactly ONE week of me going to BJJ class. First week was great, obviously I am totally clueless at this point, but I managed to stumble into a couple of guard passes and execute a couple of basic positional techniques half-way decently. I guess I am now getting to be a familiar face, because in open mat time at the end of class last night I got to see considerably more of the other white belts' games. I got just totally demolished by everyone. I mean TOTALLY demolished, like tapping 3 times per round. These are not quick taps, either...I am not going to sleep of course, but I'm not tapping until the sub is sunk in deep enough that I can no longer defend it at all. I will say that I had fun anyway, and that I didn't spaz and hurt anyone, and I can't wait until next class so I can see if I can a do little better. But I am wondering if getting totally worked over like is normal for newbies? I'm really concentrating on trying to get the techniques right and not worrying about geting tapped in the process...but if I am getting tapped 3 times a round, am I maybe being a little too OK with getting tapped?
