fashoooow has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Had my first mma class today

idk where this post goes but, anyways they were teaching me the submissions like q-lock and when i was doing i did it fast and they told me to do it slower. They told me that in jj you have to do things slow and said because im a wrestler i explode. In ufc do they have to go slow or do they explode?

I think they're trying to teach you the technique before you start flying into submissions. They want you to progress through the proper steps because you may be overlooking a position when you go to explode.

BJJ is about using leverage and technique instead of simply overpowering the opponent. I doubt you're training with a gi but if you were wearing one and you tried to overpower a skilled grappler, he would simply grab onto his pants as a way to drain you until he could slap on his own technique. Even in an MMA setting the opponent would wait for you to gas and then get an easy submission.

It could also be a precautionary measure during training. They don't want ya ripping someone's arm off just yet.
