Getting smashed in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is important! As a White Belt part of your beginning in BJJ is learning just how vulnerable you are. And when you get smashed and submitted by a higher level belt during rolling it makes you aware of the reality of the martial art.
In this video we have a newer BJJ White Belt who says he has submitted a Black Belt. He feels as though the Black Belt is actually using the full extent of their skill and that he is getting a legitimate tap on him.
His questions is whether or not he should lighten up on this Black Belt during training or keep going.
In this video, I share how I think the Black Belt is letting the White Belt work. I’m nice about it. And because I’m not there I don’t really know. But based on my almost 20 years of Brazilian Jiujitsu I have a good hunch what’s going on.
Many times experienced practitioners know the difficult road that lays ahead for the newcomer to Jiujitsu and so they try to ease the person into it slowly. Playing down significantly in their skill and ability.
In this video I describe a story from my gym to put the situation into context so that it can hopefully be helpful to our friend.
Thanks for watching the video.
