I may pay for today's post but it just can't go without being published...
Yesterday one of my instructors made a point before a round to warn one of our purple belts to not do the "masturbation position" with the small purple belt female he was about to roll with.
I still haven't quite figured out the analogy, even with his DEMONSTRATION of what he meant but his point was something about not stalling back and forth. Either go forward with a pass or go to something else but don't stall!
SO, lesson of the day, DON'T DO THE MASTURBATION POSITION in jiu-jitsu! No matter how frustrated, tired, mentally "beat" (haha) you are, do SOMEthing! Don't stall! Every day of training is progress because you made it there and you trained and even when it felt like you trained like crap, even the crap training is something!
