The answer is probably no, but is there a general 'road map' to BJJ, at least for a white belt?

There are a bunch of positions, they fit into a hierarchy. Work your way from bad positions to neutral positions to good positions:

Bad positions: escape at all costs
Bottom of mount
Bottom of side control
Back taken

Neutral positions: sweep or submit, ideally sweep
Closed guard,
Half guard
Other guards

Good positions: work towards submissions while maintaining your position
Mount
Side Control
Back Control

Sauna? Sour skittles and a spit bucket? Your options are somewhat limited due to the small amount of time between weigh ins and competing. You don't want to kill yourself to make weight.

Have you cut weight in a sauna before?

Planning a sauna tonight yes. Never cut in a sauna no.

Spit buckets and sauna are the best method. If no sauna lock yourself in a bathroom with a hot shower running while a towel blocks the bottom of the door and you qear sweats and do calisthenics.

I prefer epsom salt bath followed by a sweat suit (i.e. taping garbage bags to my body underneath two layers of sweatters) while doing moderate intensity physical activity.

There is an idea of a Yuns, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply am not there.


1 kg is nothing. You can just fast and avoid water to dehydrate 1 kg overnight. Just have gatorade/pedialyte and energy gels available for post weigh in. Generally you don't need to do the crazy sauna, vinyl suits and Epsom salt baths unless you are cutting way more.

Cheers guys. Been losing kgs through the week, 1 more to go for tomorrow. Had fruit and a little pasta today, it's 5pm, I've eaten my last and will only drink a little, in the sauna. Thanks again.

This is going to sound weird but would people be interested in having a voice chat/teleconference where I could answer BJJ questions for an hour or so. It's so much easier than typing stuff up and you can ask stuff which comes to mind on the fly. I'm not the greatest BJJ mind but I have been doing this for a while.

Every time I've cut weight for a competition I've gone in feeling lean and mean, then gas out almost immediately. Good luck, I hope you are better at it than I am.

If you didnt think body fat percentage matters, this is the weight class thatll make you see different. Ultraheavy is such a miserable weight class. Youre either fighting the stay puft marshmellow man or a 6'5 adonis of pure muscle

Once rolled with a dude so big I got him in mount and couldn't get my knees to the ground.

Had to hold the mount with active toes

Got my blue belt today. Pretty surprised, I didn't think I was doing very well at all especially with the injuries I got back in September, but he said he thought me getting hurt made me develop a game not based around just being bigger and stronger than other people.
