Also, it's crazy how many small things you have to be careful for in BJJ, width between legs, right posture, elbows up, chin tucked. It makes me respect the BJJ aspect of MMA ALOT more.
Awesome that you started training. It's a lot to take in at first but I'm completely addicted and it changed my life completely. Make sure to keep your immune system up and keep clean and take care of any cuts you have while rolling, staph is a huuuuuge problem and it's uber easy to get. A little care will go a long way, you don't want staph. Trust me.
