[BJJ Journal] First day on Team Santos

by on Aug.13, 2013, under La vida del Nahual

Well, this is a new spin on this blog, I’m changing this into my BJJ Journal is as personal as it will get 😛

So I looked into BJJ after a lot of time, my first encounter with BJJ (or JJ but I’m sure it was BJJ) was around 18 years ago while I was still in college. I was training Muay Thai and we entered a tournament and this kid with a gi and a white belt entered too I remember laughing and saying “a while belt? well don’t mind if he kick his ass” when my turn came he fastly anckle locked me, I’ve never felt so much pain and gave up, it shook me to the point of stopping training Muay Thai thinking “WTF just happened? I’ve never seen that kinda shit” 

So now I found the Team Santos school (www.teamsantos.com) and it was amazing, it took 3 triangle chokes and other armbar but I learned a lot, I learned the “upa” and tried myself a few chokes and an arm bar (all failed) but I had a blast and the team there is amazing everyone was awesome.
