    My hands are blistered from tapping out as many times as I did tonight. It was one of those "I still have a lot to learn" days. It's a damn good thing I'm an optimist because I found a bright side! :D

    I may have "lost" to every guy I rolled with (except for a newbie, but that doesn't count :icon_conf), but I found subtle improvements in my game.

    Despite losing, I was able to get mount using a newly learned technique from side control for the first time. I was also able to defend several submissions by actually using appropriate technique rather than muscle.

    Anybody else able to re-frame potentially negative days like this?

    I go through alot of peaks and calm periods in my learning BJJ just as I see every1 else doing. Keep it up and try not to get discouraged.
