I was going to start a new post (glad I didn't), but it fits in well here. I took my first wrestling class ever this morning with a really good wrestling coach in the area. It was a private lesson and I wanted to cross-train a bit in between BJJ. Worked on takedown steps, footwork and sprawling. I'm going to be sore tomorrow. Wrestling is so intense on your body, and I'm not saying that in a bad way (although it can be if not careful). The way this guy moved and shot in for the takedown was so fast. Hard to stop that. That's just the tip of the iceberg too. In my first BJJ class we worked on a takedown from a front bear hug position. I've haven't been at this school long enough to know how much they do. My instructor studied under Almeida. From what everyone has said though, BJJ is too ground focused for sport. That has it's benefits though. I really think Bruce Lee was right after all these years. LOL I would say with near certainty that a wrestler training for about a year, maybe even less, would have taken that guy in the video down.
