I Got My Butt Handed to Me

A few weeks ago at BJJ class, I was sitting out one of the rounds of live sparring because I didn’t have anyone to roll with.

Sometimes, it’s hard to pair up because most guys that do BJJ aren’t in the heavyweight category.

Well, as I was looking around, Mickey Gall, a professional and very good UFC fighter (he trains at Gracie with us) said he wanted to roll with me.

He choked me out a few times, which was cool, just being able to see how a professional athlete operates at the highest level within their specialty.

Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t a rag doll, in fact, he kept complimenting me on my strength and how that was good for him to go up against.

However, getting choked out isn’t anything new for me, often the bigger black belts get the best of me.

Yet, I don’t lose. How can that be?

Because, in life, you only lost if you don’t know why you lost.

Think about that for a moment….
