Well as the topic states I have just started BJJ at a school and have hit some problems. I previously did some informal No Gi stuff at the gym i used to train at and got the urge to get serious. Being 91kg and slowly building up my fitness i assumed i would at least be able to roll with some low degree white belts. In fact i am getting thrown around and smashed like a ping pong ball. I find i get exhausted and gassed pretty quickly mainly after the drills heading into the rolling after two techniques are taught. This has dropped my motivation train cause of being subbed left right and centre. I do BJJ on average 3-4 times a week with Muay Thai 1-2 times. I have tried breathing more frequently and differnt techniques but either way i am so fatigued when it comes to rolling that I just try to survive more so than attack or sub my partner.
Been at he BJJ Gi stuff for about 2 weeks now. Question is am i asking for too much too soon? Or Should i look at improving my strength and conditioning training and wait till i get a better feel for the Gi itself? Any help or info would be greatly appreciated !
(Plus i thought learning BJJ with the Gi would probably help master a higher level of technique in order to overcome other grapplers who are much stronger)
