I need to help with MMA mentally
So I've been doing MMA for like 6 months (I'm 17) now at my gym going everyday. When I started I weighed 100KG and have since dropped to 73KG through hard training :thumbsup: I have also been doing No Gi Jiu-Jitsu and Gi as well as Kyokushin Karate, Boxing and Shootbox and really want the main coaches to see potential in me and train me for a fight.

For my Gi + No Gi I have been performing poor even though I have done it for 6 months and I still get dominated by these amateurs or people who are not very good. This really gets me down and sometimes I just wanna cry in a way lol

I dont know what to do and I was hoping some of you pro/experienced guys can help me. Thanks

Just remember man, no matter what styles or arts you have taken up, they are all incredibly deep and take a very long time to learn. If you enjoy training, then continue and be happy with the improvements that you see (for example the weight loss) you can't expect to be a world champion over night. Anything worth doing takes time and effort, and you are still very young. Your time will come.

6 months of BJJ is barely scratching the surface. I've been doing it for 2 years and there's always the chance of getting worked over by a new guy.

"Heaven and earth are impartial;
they see the 10,000 things as straw dogs.
The sage is not sentimental;
he treats all his people as straw dogs.

The sage is like heaven and earth:
To him none are especially dear,
nor is there anyone he disfavours.
He gives and gives, without condition,
offering his treasures to everyone.

Between heaven and earth
is a space like a bellows;
empty and inexhaustible,
the more it is used, the more it produces.

Hold on to the center.
Man was made to sit quietly and find
the truth within."


With your well-received emotion toward weight-loss, you are probably recognizing what your body is capable of. Training the mind can be in different ways; studying philosophy, working abstract puzzles, or disciplining the mind toward learning a system. I think all of those are very beneficial toward any profession, or, hobby; philosophy has a way of opening the mind; discipline focuses the mind on a certain point; and, puzzle working works toward a quicker mind.

Take care,

Well I can't help with the mma side as all I've ever done is coach and never stepped into a cage but I can lend this advice. I've won a few larger competitions in my time doing BJJ Gi and No Gi and I've got a some what impressive record. However as a white belt I won exactly 1 match in at least five competitions I got smashed a lot. It's just how it is sometimes. But focus on your technical game and keep at it. In my experience as a teacher and a coach the guys who are late to the show but keep the technical side together eventually pass by everyone else.
