How does grappling effect your ego

So here's the story... last night in our no-gi grappling class after the class was pretty much over (we were done with techniques) I rolled with a guy that was stronger than me but I know I'm better than him. (to give you an idea of how bad he is he tried to put a keylock on my arm while I was on top and in his half guard). Anyway, I didn't crossface him while I was pulling my leg out to pass to mount and he grabbed an arm triangle on me... I lost my post and he rolled to mount on me and I was too tired to try to fight it off... and I tapped.

Afterwards he was trying to give me advice... but I was so pissed that I lost I wasn't really listening. Last night I couldn't sleep I was so mad that I lost. It wasn't the fact that I lost that bothered me so much (although I can't really sleep then either) but what bothered me most was who I lost to. I've been obsessing over it ever since. Does this happen to a lot of you too? Should I just try to take it as a learning experience and forget it? Am I just being too cocky to think there is someone that I shouldn't lose to? Any thoughts are appreciated.


Thanks to NikosCC for the sick sig!

Its alright to be upset if you made a mistake, no one wants to be the one who gets owned by the noob.
Oh and it ******* pisses me off sometimes when people who flat out suck give me advice.

dude, dont sweat it. everyone has their off days and grappling with a stronger guy when youre tired is going to have its challenges. any grappling practioner has times when they feel like banging their head against the wall because of a mistake/loss. it was in practice anyway. chalk it up to a learning experience and forget about it. most importantly, dont hold a grudge against the guy who made you tap.

Yeah that happens to me sometimes. You have to try to let it go but I usually cant until I either grapple again or beat that guy. Just try to not be too pissed lol. That is the best advice I can give you. I also HATE when people tap you and then try and give you advice. I dont mind getting advice but you have to understand that right after you sub someone that they are not going to be in a happy, advice taking mood. I never give advice after a submission because of that. It is easier to accept when you recognize that at least it wasnt in competition.

I know how u feel i go to ninjitsu and jiu jitsu classes. The lads at the ninjitsu class are alot bigger and stronger then me but i still try to use proper technique when i am grappling them but all they do is squezee my head and bend joints with no technique and then try and give me advice. it drives me mad.

I almost got choked out by a friend with 0 experience in any martial arts a few days ago. I was drunk and went in for a tackle to pick him up, and the guy jumped up and wrapped me in his guard with a guillotine choke. Anyway he choked me fairly hard for a few seconds while I was in a standing guard and I ended up falling face first down onto a concrete path and almost splitting my head open. This guy has no experience in anything,he just watches UFC. I was drunk, being cocky and did something I would never do in a real fight, but still it was embarassing.

alls is know is i had some prety uber pwnage with a counter hipthrow WOOHOHOO!!!

but to get owned by a noob it happens. if hes stronger then you he just overpowerd you. but to lose to a noooberz who is super weak. thats ownage. but dont trippp.its not like it was a match or anything.

i guess when your too tired to fight something off blame it on your tiredness. if i lose because im tired im like yuppp im fat haha
