thanks ray for the the recognition first off. second i dont know if i mentioned this before but there is also a totally different mental game in wrestling. In wrestling its a 6 minute all out match. In bjj you can take a minute in the guard or mount to asses a situation. In wrestling its all constant action. That has actaully been one of my biggest hurdles going from wrestling to bjj. Ive had to slow myself down incredibly. When i first went into the bjj room i was uncatchable on my feet but once on the mat i would scramble like a wrestler and get caught in in submissions left and right. So i hope that helps too.
