    I would train, but the nearest school is 40 minutes away and I cant drive (legally blind). Id train at home or something but I cant get anybody around here even remotely interested in serious training. Im surrounded by fat lazy bastards who couldnt fight their way out of a wet paper bag. :frusty:

      I've trained nearly 3 years now, should be competing in the <85 blue belt division at the state circuit end of this month.

      Great sport, and in all truth was one of the reasons I had to move away from strict DC training (current routine still uses alot of the principles and techniques) as I gradually got more involved with it.

        Yup. I've been training 2 years now and love it. I must admit though- even though I absolutely love jiu-jitsu, I'm a bodybuilder first. BJJ is more of a hobby to me.

              you know, now that running has made bodybuilding practically impossible for me, Im seriously considering it. I used to fight all the time as a teen, Im interested to see how I would manage with some good training...

              There are only three reasons why you may not like the Whopper.
              * You hate America and your parents.
              * You enjoy killing puppies.
              * You are not awesome
              I would highly recommend that all first dates happen at Burger King. Order your new girl/guy a Whopper. If he or she refuses feel free to yell, "You are a lame dog killing terrosist!"

                    amazing how there is fashion in martial arts as well.
                    all you can hear about is bjj.
                    my friend is a vale tudo instructor ...buiseness is booming.
                    i think it went like this-
                    jiu jitsu was the first. then everyone were doing judo . then karate was the thing.
                    kong fu , wing chung type and its bruce lee inspired variants .
                    then taekwondo ,kick boxing ..
                    thai box was the thing.
                    and now bjj.

                    ha there was a time when all the fighting nerds were doing ninjitsu.

                    I remember in 1985 when I went to an interview for bodyguard position I was asked about my martial arts background . when I said I had a brown belt in jia jitsu. the guy (ex green Barret or something like that ) said: shame I thought you had some fighting skills.

                    I did competetive kyokoshyn as well , so I am a part of all this fashion thing.

                      Just in case you want to see how a ten Dan black belt (actually blue and white) grand master looks like in his seventies.

                        Yeah, I hope the place I go is low on TAPOUT! meat-heads. I heard it's great for conditioning, that's the main reason I want to do it. Plus it's right down the street. I have no aspirations to become a fighter.

                          Very much so. I was doing BJJ for a while before the 'boom'. The funny this is when you get down to some serious rolling the enthusiasm with the 'fly by nighters' quickly wanes. I love the cardio asspect as well as its physicality

                          Same with poker. I was playing that for a long time before the internet boom. Now every 16yo with an ADSL line is an expert......until we sit down at the table face to face!! One thing the boom has done is brought a lot of easy money to the cash game table at my local casino

                            Same for me. I enjoy getting back to having some physical contact in a combative sense (after years of rugby)and the challenge is great. Be prepared to swallow your ego when the smallest guy in the place submits you, but the best part of that is you will learn how to do that yourself eventually

                              I was training for a bit in the underworld with George Sotiropoulos from ultimate fighter 6.
                              we mainly did lifting together. he weighs half than me but........
