I just read this post and almost fell off my chair laughing. I think this is probably one of the most classically funny BJJ writings I have seen in a long time. It’s about the types of characters we meet along the path of Jiu-Jitsu.
Jiu-Jitsu Characters: Part One
Did you love it? The Spazz, The Stinker, The Late Guy, The YouTube Guy, The Prodigy, The Restrictor, The Meathead, The Bleeder – I mean seriously? As you were reading this post, did certain people go through your mind? If you’ve been training for a while, I bet you thought of a few folks. Too funny.
I remember I rolled with a “prodigy” one time. He wore his shiny new blue belt (no stripes) and said he was from Iowa. He was visiting Connecticut for one reason for another. We drilled together for a while and I was acting all suave, but when it came time to roll, he systematically dismantled my legs and began to defeat me worse than I had ever been defeated. Come to find out, yeah, he had a bit of college wrestling experience. Blue belt. Nice.
Check this post out and let me know what you think. Anyone you know? Just don’t bring me into it.
