    No it isn't....if I'm doing karate and want to work towards being a black belt in karate and a karate teacher and compete in karate matches....why would I train bjj...that'd be stupid and pointless for what I want to do

    The arts I have trained in are Bujikan ninjutsu, Hapkido, and now train in Systema, but with a sambo element for grappling/groundwork, but it is not like a lot of videos you see on youtube.

    How often will you do BJJ and with GI or no
    Gi is 80 percent of the classes

    Are you telling him how he trains? This makes no sense.

    He just told you the arts that he trains, and BJJ was not on that list.

    Yes. That’s how exercise works when you really go at it.

    Not when you work full time and cross train in MT and wrestling and you’re 44 and 155 pounds with a history of lower back issues

    Except for the 2/3 that sucks? Your story seems inconsistent.

    But that 1/3 is magic

    Even gracies have said that 80 percent won’t work in mma or streets
    That 20 percent is golden

    What, exactly, does your height and slender frame have to do with it?

    Yeah, they’d likely destroy me, too. But I’d seek them out, to get better. I’d be sore, and would temper my week to recover sufficiently for the next class. But I wouldn’t bail on class halfway through.

    Maybe you should focus on a couple classes a week that give you a good workout, rather than getting a half-workout every day.123
