    The classes I want to take are available two days a week. There is open gym time on other days, but I don't really know what goes on during that time.

    Didn't get a response in the Clinch Chat thread so I'll post this here:

    I'd like to ask a question about training in Muay-Thai, Kick boxing, BJJ etc. A little bit more than a year ago I got surgery to fix a broken collarbone suffered from a car accident; a metal plate about 6-8 inches long to screw the two pieces of my collarbone together (it had broken completely in half). I feel mild discomfort when someone applies pressure to it (say when I'm getting a massage)......should I avoid mma training for this reason?

    I know grappling would be more likely to agitate that area but how about Muay-Thai or kickboxing? I'd imagine clinching would agitate it as well but all in all I think taking up a striking discipline is a safer bet. Also, I bet it would be awhile before I'm actually sparring as opposed to doing drills.

    It'd be awesome if someone with a similar injury could address some of my concerns but I'd appreciate input from anybody.

    Thanks.

    I just had my first BJJ class. It was super fun. I just signed up. I have a few newbie questions.

    1) I'm only going to be able to go once a week. Is there anything I can do to get better outside of the class? I know there is going to be no substition for mat time but I'd just like to know if there is anything I can do for mental reps to help maximize my benefit in class.
    2) What are 1-2 real simple moves I can work on for basics. I'd love to identify one go to move that I can get into from a larger variety of positions and just work on putting them in that submission. After I get good at one, I'll slowly expand my moves as I get okay at the others.
    3) It was a little unfair because I didn't really prep with water/breakfast prior to going and they didn't tell me we were going to spar for like 30 minutes but I was beyond gassed at the end. What can I do to work on my wrestling stamina? (Obviously I'm going to eat/bring plenty of water next time) but is there any sort of move/exercise I can implement at the gym?

    Can you practice movements at home? The first thing I would suggest is to practice basic shrimping (proper ones) and technical stand ups. Eventually you want to add in granby rolls as well.

    Outside of that, I suggest DVD's. Personally, I think most of the Ryan Hall ones are awesome. I wouldn't suggest deep half, 50/50, or cross guard but the others would likely be very beneficial. A lot of the other DVD's out there just show sets of moves with are tough for beginners to grasp if they can't put themselves in positions to do them anyway.

    Saulo Ribero's BJJ University is a good book to get a set of fundamentals from as well.

    2) What are 1-2 real simple moves I can work on for basics. I'd love to identify one go to move that I can get into from a larger variety of positions and just work on putting them in that submission. After I get good at one, I'll slowly expand my moves as I get okay at the others.
    I'd suggest to make sure on working certain fundamentals. From the bottom, focus on basic movements like shrimping and blocking cross face. The #1 thing I find with beginners is they fail to block cross face and lie flat on their back in side control/half guard. Another important concept is keeping your elbows close and not letting your opponent fill the gaps there.

    On top, keeping base. Keep hands off the mat in closed guard, etc...

    Offensively, I'd recommend have a set of moves to get you back to closed guard. Generally you will spend a lot of time on the bottom. You can then look up moves and practice them. Ie- getting closed guard from half guard, getting closed guard from side control, etc... Then forging moves that get you there. IE - bottom mount to get half guard back and then to closed guard.

    It is a great way to build a game. You get to closed guard and have a set of attacks. Eventually you will be able to dominate people from closed guard and start working sweeps and what not which will force you to develop your top game on people. As you progress, you will find more and more people you can control and work whatever elements of your game you want to work on.

    3) It was a little unfair because I didn't really prep with water/breakfast prior to going and they didn't tell me we were going to spar for like 30 minutes but I was beyond gassed at the end. What can I do to work on my wrestling stamina? (Obviously I'm going to eat/bring plenty of water next time) but is there any sort of move/exercise I can implement at the gym?
    The first is controlling your breathing and where you expend your energy. I find beginners are wasteful with their resources (energy) and gas quickly. Of course this is reasonable and to be expected given you can not be expected to know when and how to use energy. Cardio is easy to develop. Riding a bike is a good way I find for BJJ. That said, learning when to use what energy you have is more important. If you are pinned down in side control for example, aim to relax and compose yourself. Using your energy generally won't help at that point and is an opportunity to not only recharge but also think through the spot.

    Well, definitely... but, how much do you intend to train each of those days? I mean if you're doing it alternate days, then you'll have to put in more time each day. Also, you'll have to increase reps each week per day until you're on par with your expectations.

    I used to train like 4-5 hours each day when I had time. Can you put in as much time in it on those alternate days?
