Anybody else ever "lose it"

    Fri, 2008-01-18 07:50 — TapperOuter

    I did. It has been a hard week. Buying a house. Rolling hard and work is just the way work always seems to be. I was rolling with my friend and instructor. He's a great guy and was just rolling hard with me .. either to punish me or make me better. it's hard to tell. After getting elbowed in the (already black and blue) eye, my arm popped, my wrist wrecked, and my hip torqued. I just F'ing lost it. Let loose a short profanity laced outburst (only five of us in the gym all male adults just fyi) i through off my gi and left. For the moment i just couldn't handle underperforming. i couldn't handle the pain or frustration. I am going to take afew days off to get my head right, but i wanted to know if any of the more experienced grapplers ever have this happen. or if i am just a big bitch.

    hello,

    oh yes. you are a big bitch. hahahahahahaha!! we have likely all been big bitches at some point. the wierd thing about human behavior is that one never quite knows what will set oneself off. everyone has a limit. often, we don't know what that limit is until we reach it.

    hopefully you can smooth things over with your crew.

    good luck

    thanks

    One of the great aspects of jiu jitsu is that we all find our "edges" on many different levels. Once we move beyond our comfort zone and find out where we "end", then we can begin to extend ourselves. It sounds like you may have found one of your "edges". If so, use it to extend yourself.

    No, I am not a wise hermit, but I have lived the concept of personal growth (e.g. extending myself) through this sport. When I started training jiu jitsu, I was the essence of the "98lb weakling" who was non-athletic, uncoordinated, and hadn't previously trained in any other martial art. Therefore I had a lot of room to grow and I have been able to significantly push my "edges" on many different levels. I will never be a world champion fighter like LovatoJr, but I am a better father, husband, employee, friend, etc. because I have experienced those raw points in jiu jitsu (that this thread originally referred to) and have chosen to accept the challenge of becoming a better person.

    I love being at BJJ so much compared to so many other things in my life that I'm just happy to be there no matter how bad my ass gets beat. I actually kind of like it. On the other hand, it sounds like your instructor is being a little rough on you. I can see dominating you with position to get you to move right and test your will, but I don't know that he should be cranking subs too hard on you. I guess every instructor has their style, though. In my experience, taking a little time off is sometimes good for your grappling. It seems to give the mind a chance to wrap itself around concepts differently than it will if you're continually training and I usually come back changed for the better and refocused. My job forces me to take time off here and there, but even if it didn't, I think I would take a week off for evey 4 straight that I trained.

    But that's just me, I'm not near as accomplished or experienced as a lot of other grapplers here and don't make a living at it.
