When will I actually feel like I can somewhat defend myself against him? It's really discouraging.
Patience Grasshopper ...every time you get tapped, go back to that position and ask a more experienced guy how to avoid/counter. When you're getting your a** kicked, you don't feel like you're getting better, but you are.
Train for a few months and then roll with your newbie friends and you'll be amazed how easy it is to tap them.
