Yo BJJ Mat Warriors, brace yourselves for another wild training tale. So, I made the rookie mistake of eating beans before training. I mean, who doesn’t love a good bean burrito, right? But little did I know, those beans were about to make their presence known in the worst way possible.
As soon as I hit the mat, I could feel the pressure building in my gut. I tried to hold it in, thinking it would pass, but it just kept getting worse. And then, it happened. I let out a massive fart right in the middle of a roll. It was so loud, everyone in the class heard it and stopped what they were doing to look at me. I was so embarrassed, I wanted to crawl under the mat and disappear.
But, as they say, when life gives you gas, roll with it. I decided to embrace the awkwardness and use it to my advantage. I made a joke about it and turned the situation around by using it as a distraction during the roll and managed to sweep my training partner.
Moral of the story: always be careful what you eat before training and never be afraid to laugh at yourself.
Stay safe and roll on (but maybe hold the beans next time)!
