My boyfriend and I joined a local gym and they had a grappling class he asked me to try with him. Sure enough we tried it and the first day he was put up against a twelve year old boy and lost. The boy overpowered him and grappled him like nothing. And my bf is around 155 and in good shape (he exercises and runs). He had several inches on the boy. He was bigger by at least 30 to 40lbs...but weak. Have any of you girls had weaker boyfriends? Would it bother you?
My boyfriend isn't really sporty, he does fencing and all of our friends have tried to get him to join our basketball team. But he is more artsy and video games. Sometimes it makes me feel awkward that I am stronger than him but it doesn't really matter.
Grappling isn't all about strength, it's about skill. I'm sure the boy just had more skill than your boyfriend. It doesn't mean your boyfriend is "weak", he just ins't good at grappling (i mean come on, it was his first time).
Its strength and skill and experience. Maybe next time he'll win, if there is a next time. Thanks for the reply.
