    Look there is money in grappling these days you can do well out of it.

    Otherwise there are MMA schools that are grappling as well as anybody. So the theory that as a BJJ specialist you have the upper is not so relevent anymore.

    So you should be looking at the best training and the hardest competition. And make the style a bit less relevant.

    Sounds like you have an incredible opportunity here, and that you're a very talented grappler. Improving your sub-grappling game could in no way hurt your MMA career.

    There's really no question here, unless of course you just flat out don't like grappling. In which case, MMA would not be the sport for you, anyways.

    My advice is do the jits. They're basically giving you a scholarship if you are training for free. Plus you are 15, **** me, bro, you have shitloads of time to develop into MMA.

    Lots of people are OK at everything. And you can train up to this level fairly quickly if you're a decent athlete. Not many people are awesome at any one thing.

    I'd rather be awesome.

    Specialize for a couple of years, then see what you feel like. At your age, you couldn't fight professionally for a few years anyways. Take two years and just specialize. Become a badass grappler, or at least get yourself going in that direction. And if you're still not satisfied at that point, then work on rounding out your skillset. BJJ and high school wrestling would be a killer foundation to build on should you want to continue in grappling, or switch back to mma.

    Let me reiterate a point for everyone. AUSTRALIA DOES NOT HAVE HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING. TENACIOUS666 IS IN AUSTRALIA. THEREFORE TENACIOUS666 DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING. Please don't bring it up again.

    Another off topic post in the Basic Technique forum. How many times do I have to tell you idiots to not make YMAS type posts in the BT forum?

    You know what? I just had a great idea. The next dumb ass that makes an off topic post in this forum get a week ban from the site.
    Shut the hell up and train.
