“Things Jiu jitsu players say while they are Rolling!”
One of my pet peeves is when students here in our Arlington Jiu Jitsu gym are have a full conversation while we are drilling moves. Even more aggravating is when they are talking while they are rolling.
I have been listening more lately because I have been rolling intermittently, trying to heal my shoulder, and for some reason, I have had a heightened sensitivity to conversations going on while students are rolling.
Am I the only one who is bothered by this? I would be curious to hear some of the things you hear. Below are some of my examples.
“I am so sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you, That is o.k. it was my fault, no, no, it was mine, I’m sorry!” My response: So you guys made up I can see, now you can start rolling again.
“You can’t grab inside my Gi, that is illegal.” My response: It’s legal in my class.
“Yea, that was so funny, I couldn’t believe it when….” My response: You guys talking about Jiu-jitsu?
“O.k. o.k., you got it, you got it.” (Student referring to a partner who was about to put an arm bar on) My response: No, no, no, keeping going he/she doesn’t have anything yet and I didn’t see you tap!
“What’s that on your arm, is that ringworm?” My response: Get off the mat!
“Pat is so old” My response: What happened the last time we rolled?
