I hear what you're saying, dude.
I'm a fit guy, but I went to a BJJ class a few weeks ago and had a spar with some older dude. He must've been in his late 40's/early 50's and after a few minutes of grappling, man, I was fucked! He was still fresh as a daisy.
It was only through brute strength I managed to hold him off. I was a good few stone heavier than him but the dude was all over me.
I'm a striker....do boxing and Kickboxing, but I train in BJJ everynow and again to get my ass whooped!
LOL...yep. I'm staying away from that grappling for now man. lol.
they offer grappling also at my gym. I talked with the guy that trains it and he told me to get more flexible and expect to get tired really fast in there b/c of my size and he'd expect me to try to use power..etc....entirely different ball game...man..lol
says the muscle guys always come in hard..he just relaxes then all of a sudden he's all over them man.
I dislike when guys watch mma matches and just say crazy stuff and never tried it like we have man....not only do you have to worry about punches...you add in leg kicks, variety of punches and kicks. you can't stay flat footed, one kick to the leg and your base is gone, have to worry about take downs, clinches, elbows...man
LOL....the one good thing the old guy told me ...he goes....."hey..... you have good reflexes I can tell" "you won't just say in one spot and allow me to continue to hit you like most...atleast you move around after your hit" LMAO
I told him man I'm not just gonna stand there and let you kick my a$$ even more. LOL you will have to chase me down for that. LMAO
if anybody hasn't tried this stuff......man ....just pay the $$$$ find a nice gym and try it once on your life....you'll see MMA totally different man. LOL just like boxing if you do that.
