    Last night completed my 3rd night of training. Had a fucking blast BTW. I actually had a BJJ dream last night. Strange? I know. Anyway we were drilling shots last night and my feet (right outside of my big toe) got rubbed pretty raw. It's nothing excruciating or anything like that but it's a mild irritant. My feet arer wrapped right now with a bit of antibiotic ointment on them just to prevent any type of weird infection. Is this something that tends to go away as you train (callouses?) or is it just something BJJ fighters deal with? I'm cool with both.

    My dream just involved another sweaty dude. Your dream kicked way more ass than mine.

    sweet isn't it...anyhow, i had the same problem when I first started...My toes would be raw also...In about a few months, you'll develop cauluses on your feet. On your hands also because of all the gi gripping you'll be doing......

    Make sure and keep it wrapped tight before you roll. You don't want any funky staph or ringworm getting inside your toe.

    Cool thanks. I figured callouses would form. It's odd having my feet tore up from shooting. In wrestling I wore shoes and never really thought much about it.

    I had a dream that royler was going over shrimping with me

    he made a huge deal of the importance of placing your foot as a pivot point

    after the dream my shrimp got 10x better

    I won't get a chance to put a gi on until after the Pan Ams so my fingers are spared at the moment. My gym is strictly no-gi right now because a lot of the guys are headed to NY to compete. The regular schedule of 3 days gi and 2 days no-gi will start back after that. I'm excited about training in both.

    Takes a real man to admit this... I usually just keep these dreams to myself.

    I was happy to notice when I woke up that I did not have wood so that was reassuring.
