    How hard is BJJ when you are short? I'm only 5'3 and not very flexible but if I did join I would obviously get in better shape and do the stretches. Also when rolling/practicing how much pressure are people putting on their submissions? Is it just like "ok dude we both know I got you so tap" or are they gonna rip on your arm until you tap?

    I've seen all kinds of body types become very skilled in BJJ. I wouldn't let your stature determine if you join a school.
    How much pressure do people put on submissions? It varies from person to person...but most schools I've been to will tell you something along the lines of "if you hurt your training partner, you're down one more person you can't train with".
    Personally, I'll lock the submission in with enough pressure that you'll realize I have it....if you don't tap, I'll start applying pressure. I've only had one guy (new person) who I had to ask, "Are you really going to wait until I crank the crap out of this?"
    I've only had a few lock a submission down hard enough to make the joint a bit sore.

    Most people will tell you to lighten up on the heavy lifting.

    For me personally, I lift heavy twice a week and then three days a week I do cardio/conditioning. I've had to take time off from BJJ and MT since Oct for a back injury, but before that I found it allowed me to have strength and boosted my endurance a great deal.

    I know there was a poster who used to frequent this section who was a pro fighter and said that when he lifted, it was more of a bodybuilder's routine. It worked for him (obviously he still did cardio/conditioning as well)

    Not really harder than it is for anyone else. Everyone has set of attributes that they have to work with, it is how you can use and apply those. Maybe your triangles will be hard to get but I find short folks can attack certain sweeps easier. They generally have better bases and other bonus attributes. Flexibility can be worked on and is not nessicarly that important. Adjust your game to your strengths and you will be fine.

    Everyone is different, generally most people will not crank on submissions but apply pressure to let you know they have it. Just tap a lot at first.

    Thanks for the tips guys. I'm going to my first class next week and this has been a great read. I have no experience at all at boxing/wrestling so expecting it to be tough!

    could be partly due to meal timing/choice before training. something simple an hour or two before is usually good, people are different though so see what works best for you. also should not be a problem as your cardio improves. i just started a couple months ago, cardio increases quickly. possibly drinking more water throughout the day could help if you currently arent getting enough.

    ahaha my god that was me yesterday, went to my 1st class, so many runs around the octagon and side skips, then all the front and back rolls back and forth, and hip sweeps.... and that was just the warm up...

    i seriously thought i was going to die at some point, and i'm probably in my best cardio shape i been in a while


    something i noticed was i hadn't drank much water, and my throat water was pretty dry during the drills, i'd say drink more water before all the **** begins, + the water breaks you're allowed

    my head was still like turning from the flips, and he was giving the instructions for the next thing, now that i think about it, it's pretty funny

    on top of all that i been on keto diet for a week, no carbs

    Hi guys, thought I would contribute to this after getting directed here

    I've been doing bjj/mma for 6 months now and I feel that my skillset has definately improved but I need more strength against larger opponents. Can someone recommend a good 3-day split inbetween 4 days of training bjj/mma?

    Also, don't be a douche if you are doing really against someone in the school.
    A. They could be new as well
    B. They could be off that day or just working on a skill set that is not their strong point
    C. Someone could just be being nice till you go douche bag

    Example: Back when I trained at Hackneys Combat we had a new guy come in that was a black belt in Karate and did a good amount of western boxing too. M strong point is BJJ and really, I am a ground and pound'er. In Striking only he was tagging me a lot And then started to get puffy chested about it and finally one punch dislodged my contact I stepped off to the side for a sec and Gideon Ray had been watching all of this jumped in to "fill in"for me the last 40sec of the round. He may not have done well in the UFC but he is still a damn good fighter and he leg kicked and body shot the hell out of this guy before tko'ing him at the last second.
    After gear changing it was time for Mixed, Striking with Takedowns and G+P. He was lined up with me again and was smirking and getting all puffy chested thinking he was going to lite me up again.he gave up in the second round after tapping a bunch in the first.
    I sell home and commercial fitness equipment, so if you have questions on equipment PM me and I will help.

    “When the light comes down, and the earth shakes with the footsteps of a thousand battalions, when the air sings with the sound of clashing shields, and the ground is wet with the blood of men, that is when I am most alive. That is when my life is taken to the edge of the point, that is when I am invincible until the moment of death”

    There is a good strength and conditioning sticky you may want to check out.
    But honestly, as new as you are...I would keep working technique because strength will only get you so far (relatively speaking, obviously).

    There is always "that guy" who shows up from time to time. They either are humbled and become more compliant after someone with a greater/different skill set than them opens their eyes.
    Or....they leave.

    I've only seen one or two who stick around and are so hard headed or clueless that they don't start working better with others. They end up asking "are you mad at me" cause they can't figure out why everyone goes wide open or refuses to work with them.

    I was wondering which style I should train in as I don't plan on being a major competitor, but which would be the best to train in if I was ever in a real fight.

    Wrestling & Muay Thai or Wrestling & Kickboxing have always been what I thought I would be best in but am looking for some more knowledgeable advice. Also, I have a school I'd like checked out by people who actually know what there talking about as I want real training, not just some rinse and repeat mainstreamed garbage.

    If school doesn't look good are there any you'd recommend around Maple Ridge, BC?

    If your looking for realistic, as in, life and death, kill or be killed training then I would cross Nogi (dont have a gi on...) BJJ with Krav Maga. Krav Maga is no rules fighting designed by the Israeli military and Nogi BJJ would fill in the gaps that Krav Maga neglects (if fight gos to the ground) and contemporary nogi training crosses techniques with traditional wresteling, Catch as Ctach can and Shooto (too lazy to check if I spelled that right) Currently, the US Army recently switched a huge portion of their combatives to use techniques commonly found in Nogi training.

    As for your school, 70 bucks a month seems pretty cheap, but I honestly dont know much about BJJ politics or lineages so I cant help you much there.
    Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential.

    If you've done other stuff, remember you are now a white belt again. No one wants to hear " in must Thai, we did this, in judo we did that." Keep your mouth shut,and if you have a few tricks no one has seen, save them for sparring.


    Oh and until you have been going a while, know your training partners, and know what their control is like- wear a cup.

    I need some advice, I am gonna start boxing again (I went for 2 months last year) in September. Boxing is 3 times a week. Advice on how should I plan the rest of the week. Keep in mind I'm 275 pounds and want to lose weight obviously. Should I do a full body routine on the off 3 days and take one day off? or should I just do some more cardio maybe for 1-2 months until I get down to a lower weight and then start lifting?

    Any input or advice would be really appreciated, thanks!

    My main tip is always Leave your ego at home. Always go in humble and remember that you will get summited. It happens to everyone. Most likely you wont sparr with no one unless you have experience. People tend to have less hands and more ground work thats why I am working on a book to help people increase hand speeds and power. IF you have any questions you would like to add to the book please visit the website fasterhands(dot)com

    thank you

    anyone want to elaborate on the ''leave your ego at the door'' statement? Seems more like a catchphrase than expressing any true wisdom in it.

    Basically, don't.....
    - Walk in thinking you know everything, have nothing to learn and just came in there to fight people.
    - Think that because you have some muscle on you, that some little guy can't make you look like a child.
    - Walk in mouthing off to everyone thinking you are a bad ass.

    Had my first ever private Muay Thai tuition this morning with Phon Martdee (Google/Wiki for his credentials)at his gym in Northbridge, going to do 5 private sessions then hopefully jump in with the afternoon 'fitness' classes then maybe more competitive fighting when I'm ready.

    I have to say, being 27 years old with absolutely no experience in any type of martial art/fighting I was feeling a little bit intimidated after seeing some of the other guys training. For a guy who has trained many champions over a long career, his coaching, attention and general help in our 1on1 with an absolute newb was great. He said my overall conditioning is far better than most beginners but I clearly have a longggg way to go! My coordination doing even the most basic shadow boxing and drills was a bit embarassing but having never used a skipping rope before in my life I was pretty happy to get 5 consecutive minutes without stuffing up.

    My shins need a lot of work too - 15 reps of kicks on each leg with a bag and I was in paiiiiiiiin
