If you just started training you’ll hear people being called a spazzy white belt.

So what is a spazzy white belt?

The classic example would be the new guy built like large silverback. They will;

  • Hold on to every grip so tight as if they’re hanging off the empire state building by a rope.
  • Try to strangle you with their bare hands
  • Grab and twist your fingers.
  • Try subs from terrible positions 

The worst thing about rolling with a spazzy white belt is you’re at risk of getting;

  • Kicked in the face
  • Kneed in the face
  • And even elbowed in the face

You often end the roll looking like you just had a bar fight with a grizzly bear.

So in a nutshell, a spazzy white belt is anyone who uses a lot of strength and does chaotic things to chase subs without any positions to finish.

If you think this is you.
