    "it's like what? you both lie down - and roly-poly toward each other till you are grappling?
    or does it start in the missionary position.. after a little foreplay?"

    Lot of people start from thier knees which eliminates some of the throwing/clinching/standup element.

    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.

    I train at an MMA style school under Kirik Jenness and David Roy who I believe are both purple belts under Renzo Gracie. BJJ.org lists (Last updated 07/16/04) them both as blue belts but I asked Dave once and he said he is a purple belt.

    Sometimes we do just grappling sometimes MMA. 2 - 3 times a week I get my ass kicked.

    Edit: remove WEST icon... woops. Just to be 100% clear - no Gi.

    As for grappling overall, most of the time I just roll with buddies of mine, though most don't do BJJ. The majority are sub wrestlers, judoka, high school/collegiate wrestlers, or something similar.
    I'm glad you do grappling, but I didn't ask "How do you NOT learn BJJ?"

    There's already too many people riding the Gracies' nuts, so I stick with sub wrestling :thumbsup: I don't like gis.

    The fact you do ninjitsu negates both of those statements. Get out of this thread about real grappling.

    I have rolled (irregularly) with BJJ players; one of the blackbelt instructors is a blue under Carlson; and I watch instructional videos, then practice the principles in ne waza randori (I average about 1.5 classes a week at this point).

    Despite this, I wouldn't say that I actually 'learn' BJJ. I'm applying it all to Judo, and studying it in a Judo context. I have, however, had six months (more) of instruction under (among others) a BJJ blue belt...but the instruction was in Judo.

    This question should have been check boxes, not radio buttons.
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    You can start your own "Where do you learn ninjitsu?" thread if you want, but it's rather obnoxious to post in here just to tell us you DO NOT do anything related to what is being asked, and then vote in a poll which you already excluded yourself from being able to truthfully answer.

    Notice I did say "majority" and not all of them. My buddy is a blue belt at Steel City MAs in BJJ and we roll occasionally. I just said the majority are not, as he's the only one.
