    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Cool ideas that you would like to see spread from gym to gym.

    So I saw this video

    http://www.facebook.com/Meerkatsu/vi...3320153728381/


    and I of course liked it.

    Obviously said video itself isn't really meaty enough to be a topic.

    So what cool little things does your Gym do?

    Two days a week the BJJ gym I was most recently attending had an hour long beginner/drilling class, immediately followed by the conditioning/technique/rolling class.
    Plenty of the blue belts and couple higher were regular attendees, just honing the basics.

    Friday <insert alternative day here> Night Fights - no official class, lessons, drills or any real structure. Whoever wants to attend just shows up, the radio plays in the background, match ups and rule sets are determined ad hoc throughout the evening, and bout after bout unfolds, while everyone else cheers and "coaches" from the sidelines. As everyone lingers, after they get their personal fill ass whoopin and gratuitous friendly violence, the focus shifts to beer and bs.

    At Kurt Pellegrino MMA, every now and again, we do tag-team rolling. It's a fun little diversion, and it is really interesting to see how quickly a high-percentage technique can fail when another body is involved.

    Oh that reminds me a place I was at did Simulated competition, Everyone watching, refs, score keepers, et all like twice a month, it was really good to see the difference between free rolling/randori and competing.

    When I had a gym, we were doing the 22 pushups thing with regularity.

    I'm homeless, right now, so I'm relegated to body-weight training, which translates to seeing how hard I can hold down the couch. I'm getting pretty good at it.

    We actually did something along these lines today. You're right that it was a lot of fun, in novelty if nothing else.

    Did you find the activity of no realistic benefit?

    It isn't that I don't see tangible benefit.

    At my level of skill and fitness, it's pretty much a given that I am going to get smashed no matter what. Since I can barely save myself from being utterly humiliated by a single person, taking on two people at the same time made me feel it was going to require much more effort and energy than my lazy self would otherwise need to put into getting my ass handed to me.

    But, once it started mixing up, it was surprisingly fun.

    I think this is already quite common but at my club we sometimes do a drill where one person has to spar everyone in the class in succession without any breaks, generally when people are preparing for a fight. It's a pretty good way to test your fitness and there's a lot more pressure once you get tired
