    Serious practitioners do A LOT MORE. For them, training takes precendence over most other things, just like any athlete in any sport. Take Kimura for example - he did like 9 hours of training a day, every day. It sounds like a lot to most of us mere mortals, but 10 hours a week would be the minimum norm for any serious practitioner who wants to get somewhere... just like any other athlete in any sport.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    more importantly he was able to fly in the world's best instructors for private lessons as well.

    putting in productive time is just as important as putting in the time.

    Didnīt he lie to his parents that he was using this money to pay for college, but spent it all on BJJ lessons?

    i mean it's a judo tournament, in judo he IS a white belt.

    I have always objected to this video showing the 3l337n355 of BJJ. I am not sure if it is because it makes the judo players look so bad, or if it is the fact that you have a world class athelete going against some black belts of unknown reputation. I also dont beleive that he is a white belt in BJJ during this tourniment. He may be i may just be off base but it seems like he is wearing a white belt because he dosnt hold a belt in judo.

    On a positive side this video and events like this is the reason my Judo club works so hard on the ground. So maybe this is similar to the history of judo where the "young" judoka "rebels" tuned the jujitsu world on its ear.

    But when you say 9 hours a day, you don't mean straight Judo right? I mean conditioning, stretching, this is all training. I don't think the body can handle that much.

    A lot of the new school thinking actually promote a lot of rest. Take Rhadi Ferguson's training approach of being intense and streesing quality over quantity. In addition, some MA peopel take notes, pictures and perfect their moves training pure technique at a very low intensity. It is impossible to go all out everyday.

    I heard he was a white belt in BJJ at this time as well because he had just started training at an actual academy (I thought I heard it was Ralph Gracies') - regardless, he had a neighbor that he trained hard with before he joined a school.
