I started BJJ/MMA two months ago and I'm addicted already. I've noticed with BJJ that I feel like I catch on quickly but then I'll roll with a Blue or Purple and will get destroyed (obviously.) Yet I feel that when I go with other Whites, I'm doing more than holding my own. I try to go with people that have at least 40 pounds on me (I'm about 155 and 5'7") and I try to work off my back. While doing that, I usually only try to armbar, triangle, or scissor sweep (I don't know much still.) Don't get me wrong though, there are def. whites that dominate me. Also, I have noticed a progression...albeit with other whites that have only been there around the same amount of time as myself. Basically, what I'm wondering is that if others have gone through this same experience (besides the being dominated by blues and purples while being a white belt.) As a side note, I recognize I'm still terrible and basically a virgin at BJJ but I love it and can't wait to keep learning more. Sorry for the worthless story. Just had to tell someone.
