For Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Judo, Sombo, Chinese Kung-Fu catching style, other grapping
style Martial Art. Biginner Keep on Training, you are good enough. You are not loser.
These is why:
It’s very common for new grapplers to become discouraged at about the 2 or 3 month mark.
In the beginning this person sort of expected to get his ass kicked, but now (after a few months
of classes)he is STILL getting his ass kicked. His grappling game largely consists of lying there
pinned while frantically defending submission attempts.
This style of purely defensive and purely reactionary grappling isn’t very satisfying.
This new student is learning all sorts of cool offensive techniques, but never getting to
apply any them himself, so why bother training at all?
What this person has forgotten is that all his training partners have been getting better as well.
Everybody is improving at the same time, so it can take a long time to close a skill gap
between himself and and someone who has been grappling longer.
It is only when newbies show up at the club and the former beginner gets to do some
ass kicking of his own that he realizes how much he’s learned. All of a sudden he
finds out that he HAS been learning stuff all along, and that he isn’t a complete failure
at this grappling stuff after all.
If you are a beginner and find yourself at this two month mark then take heart!
Things will improve.
If you are in a coaching or mentoring position in your club then keep your eyes open
for this phenomenon. In my experience it often occurs after about 2 months of training.
Take that person aside and explain what is happening – it will cheer him up and may
even stop him from dropping out altogether.
So I say it again , For Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Judo, Sombo, Chinese Kung-Fu
catching style, other grapping style Martial Art, etc... Biginner Keep on Training,
you are good enough. You are not loser. You are on the way to be a winner.
