First fight in a couple of months.

Hi I just want to know if you can help me,I am having my first fight and would like to see what you suggest my game plan should be.

1 and a bit year experience in jkd(Brazilian jiu-jitsu,muay thai) ,I am strong for my size used to be a powerlifter.I am 155,5'8.I can bench 310pounds sqaut 350.

When i am sparring etc i can always overpower my opponent and i can take a good shot.

My sparring partners that are more experienced then me dont like me much because when we are doing Brazilian jiu-jitsu when they get the upperhand,i just use my strength and always seem to get out of trouble and put them in a submission.

Any suggestions and tips are appreciated.

Hmmm, seems like your coach/trainer should be the one giving you this kind of info.

If we have never seen you train at all, or your opponent, AND you're coach won't help you!??

You're pretty much screwed

It's hard to really decide what's best for you as I'm not your coach, and based on what you just told me....I suggest you find a new coach and a better place to train.

That being said, it seems like you're a strong 155er and have submission skills. You didn't talk much about your striking other than the fact that you can take a punch, so I'm assuming there isn't much to talk about.

Based on that, I say get the fight to the ground and finish your opponent with a submission. Or if your striking is decent enough to last all rounds, win on points. Takedowns, control..etc..

Again this is based on little information.

No he helps but he doesnt like my ego!

I cant train mma at another place its the only one we have in the city.

I would say that my submissions is alot better then my striking,i dont have the fastest hands but I land them and got a good right hand.

I will try and get some video footage of the guy.

thanks for the help.
