    You HAVE to be 200+ and bench 400lbs to do BJJ. Don't listen to these pple go stack up on steriods and eat your Wheaties. They will try to lie to you and tell you guys like Royce, Genki Sudo, and others have beaten pple bigger and stronger than them but its all LIES!!! All the videos have been faked to so don't let it fool you!!!!

    We have a perfectly capable purple belt who has only one leg. I am sure you can do BJJ without having a 400# bench.

    Also, if you're going to compete, most competitions I've seen will match up the fighters by size. So, if you're not big, you won't be going against a huge guy anyway. Just get as strong as you can for your size/body type, and get your technique down, and you'll be fine.

    Size is about 10% of the equation IMO.

    You may have noticed that Pride, UFC etc are MMA organizations, not BJJ.

    You may have also noticed that NAGA, Grappler's Quest etc. usually have absolute divisions, which are often not won by the biggest guys.

    Being big and strong helps. But it doesn't mean that smaller, more technical players aren't going to beat you soundly.

    Of course, being light, weak AND technically incompetent makes for a frustrating experience, so the first months of training may be hard. That's part of the deal.

    To answer the question from a personal perspective: I am tall, lanky, and not strong at all compared to some of the freaks in our school. I'm doing okay.

    You left out one key thing that goes a long way towards you holding your own, BR: Flexibility.

    There are many factors involved in being a good fighter, or at least just good at BJJ. Strength is one, so is Size, so is Flexibility, etc. The most important though will always be Technique.

    It's a fact: Your skill in BJJ is directly proportional to how much you bench.
