    I had a question about what type of exercises I can do to increase flexibility in BJJ.

    I know some BJJ practitioners like JKDChick might now some, and other methods of stregthening grip and overall performance.

    Since I know I'm not that flexible and I need to be :P So I can start early :P
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    Thomas Kurz has written a series of fantastic articles on flexibility online. I've also heard great things about his books. You ought to consider giving them a go.

    Yeah, sorry that that's the longest URL in the world, but I found it through an Ask Jeeves search about a year ago. Hope this helps.

    "Stretching Scientifically" is a great book. Do bridges.

    **The most miraculous power that can verifiably be attributed to "chi" is its ability to be all things to virtually all people, depending on what version of the superstition they are attempting to defend at any given moment.**
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    The cover is really gay, admittedly. But the content is NOT indicated by the cover...at all. I almost didn't buy the book when I saw the cover, but it came so highly recommended I gave it a shot.

    Wow.

    That cover makes me think that the book has everything I want from life in it.

    It teaches you how to stretch and how to duplic...no wait, triplicate yourself.

    Carbon, thanks for the props, but I'm a newbie at BJJ. All I know right now is the your Abs are going to be critical, and you should increase your arm strength. Asia's right I think, much as it pains me to admit any sissy old-lady thing like yoga is actually useful.

    JKDChicky,

    Yoga is one of those things that has been corrupted by the Tofu scuffing tree huggin hippie club, like taiji. Yoga has been the main stay of warriors for centuries. It helps give you great command of your body, which anyone can benefit from.

    When it comes to Yoga and BJJJ. Well there is this little candy-ass guy named Rickson Gracie who likes it and recommends it. But I don't think he know what he is talking about.<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>
