Let’s say you are at least a blue belt…
A person comes to class and it is their first day of sparring.
How do you roll with them?
Do you roll light?
If they are aggressive do you try to smash them?
This happens a lot. I think some leeway and forgiveness should be given to a new person sparring.
Because the tools they come in with may be raw but it is also a good test and lesson for you.
I’m sure plenty of us have gotten a tad bit pissed when we get elbowed in the nose or mouth by a new person with little body control.
But we have to teach them somehow. Should you roll in a passive manner? Passive-aggressive? Tough love? Or something else?
How do you prefer to spar with newbies in Jiu Jitsu?
