The past two Saturday’s have convinced me. I need to restart jiu jitsu.
I thought a lot about this during the pandemic, and I was pretty comfortable with just riding out into the sunset and moving on. But seeing many old friends and rolling again changed my mind.
I went to my first class at Rebel BJJ today. Light day, as it was just Tim and I. We drilled a sit up guard sweep, that was very appropriate. I was working something similar on Saturday, to no effect against Tim and Long. Then we rolled for a few rounds. At a nice leisurely pace that only left me mostly gasping for air.
