    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Poll for strikers

    If this is an inappropriate forum for this, please move it to wherever is appropriate. I wasn't honestly sure where to put this.

    Yes, this isn't a real poll, but the forum software won't do multiple questions with multiple answers.

    Strikers -

    1) How often do you train grappling?

    2) How often do you train takedowns?

    3) How often do you train striking with takedowns?

    4) How often do you roll with strikes?

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Note: I'm recovering from a persistent knee injury and surgery, so this should all be taken to be about my habits before last October.

    1) How often do you train grappling?

    * Roughly monthly as it averages out (informally, with BJJ or JJJ guys), usually in the form of a few weeks on and then some off.

    2) How often do you train takedowns?

    * Every class to every other class. In my current style, we like knocking people on their asses.

    3) How often do you train striking with takedowns?

    * About half of the takedown training is directly linked to strikes.

    4) How often do you roll with strikes?

    * Not too often, unfortunately, because the set of people willing to do it around me isn't large.

    Hard to quantify. I only get to train 5 hours a week. 1 hour Vale Tudo, 1 hour BJJ, 3 hours Open Mat.

    1) How often do you train grappling?
    Every session, about half the time.

    2) How often do you train takedowns?
    Every session, varies, not more than half the time.

    3) How often do you train striking with takedowns?
    Always, but most of the time gently.

    4) How often do you roll with strikes?
    Always mix the two, in my opinion one
    without the other may lead to avoidable failure
    and delusion.

    Grappling isn't part of boxing.

    2) How often do you train takedowns?
    takedowns aren't part of boxing

    3) How often do you train striking with takedowns?
    Are you picking up on a theme yet?

    4) How often do you roll with strikes?
    How about now?


    Although I do goof around with friends it doesn't count as training. That I can't find the type of grappling training I'd like is an ongoing source of frustration.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    1) How often do you train grappling?
    Primarily once every two weeks, sometimes more if I have the opportunity to roll with somebody but once every two weeks is the average.

    2) How often do you train takedowns?
    Since I don't train in grappling, the most takedowns we do are sweeps and a few throws. That'd be about once a week.

    3) How often do you train striking with takedowns?
    About the same as #2, once a week. The strikes are only light contact though, and we don't do it with our kumite as we're basically training in the guy's garage and falling onto the cement a lot isn't a lot of fun.

    4) How often do you roll with strikes?
    Aside from sparring in my own time, rarely.

    AiKiZenDragon,
    you realize that since you're an aikidoka, you probably don't count as a striker.
