train at bad gym or dont train? what u think. i think im picking up bad habbits.
Please provide more details.
white belts and blue belts at our gym, outside coach. i make a lot of mistakes and get away with them at my current. wait 2 months and restart at awesome gym?
I think it is better to wait and learn good technique than to try and break bad habits later
I think that some training is better than no training. At least you are going to an organized place where you can roll frequently, so you should be able to figure out your style and see what works and what doesnt. Later when you get to a good gym you'll learn WHY things worked or didn't.
You will just grow with such young team.
Nothing wrong with just training with white and blue belt.
Beggars are not chosers.
2 of my brasilian teamates started training under a purple belt back in Brasil. Now they are awesome BB!
I agree that some training is better than none but, TS said he would have to wait 2 months. How far would it really set him back to just wait and learn better technique?
I do not think he learning bad techniques.
i think he is getting away by using strengh against white and blue belts because he can.
so he thinks it is a bad gym.
Very good point! I didn't think about it like that.
Sometimes, it is better to seek out an academy that has high level belt and big boys as well.
The learning curve could be better.
It is better to be the gold fish in the big pond than the shark in the smaller pond.
It all depends on how smart you can train if you have limited training partners.
The first point is my understanding too. I go to 2 different gym for that reason. One has simply a very technical training, very interesting, but guys there are too small, and it's too easy for me to abuse them out of sheer strength (and I can tell you I'm not that big.). I went to another class later on with only guys my size or bigger, my game improved immensely.
Lower quality opponents cannot make you pick up bad technical habits or bad techniques.
Any training is better than no training at all, so stick it out.
Without knowing any more information other than what was posted, I'm leaning towards this post. As long as you're getting good instruction from your coach, I don't see how your teammates deficiency's are forcing your bad habits. If you're dominating them while making mistakes, simply slow down and stop making mistakes.
You could wait two months if you'd like, personally wild horses couldn't drag me off the mats for two months.
train, at least you get rolling time
I just went from being the shark to a goldfish....Humbling to say the least.
What do you mean by outside coach? Like he isn't at every lesson or doesn't own the gym? Sorry, I haven't really heard that term before.
How many bad mistakes could he really pick up and retain in two months? Go to the "bad gym" and at least get some rolls in and keep your cardio up.
Some training > no training.
