    I swam instead of wrestled in HS but I had a bunch of friends on the wrestling team and I wrestled in Jr High.

    Swimming gave me a great cardio base for everything else so, I don't regret swimming but I do wish they had been different seasons so I could have done both.

    Even guys who just wrestled in HS can be very good. After all, HS is four years, thats alot of training. After like 6 months of bjj I felt I had a good sprawl, and I did against the bjj guys I rolled with. A guy fresh out of HS rolled in. He had been on the wrestling team. He proceded to open up a takedown clinic on me.

    Although I'm sure this will cause a riot of internet jokes, Breaststroke. I also did IM but my Fly sucked. Ironically my Butterfly form is better now. I think it's because I'm looser in the shoulders now that I'm out of shape and I float more now that I'm fat!

    Don't feel bad that was my favorite. I went to state in breastroke, the butterfly, and freestyle.

    My butterfly has actually gotten worse since my gut became fatter. Much fatter.

    wrestling gave me an advantage in BJJ that most guys couldnt match - ground controll and spatial skills.

    i can also take them down at will (keep your chin down, avoid a guillotine)and escape when they have my back with poor hooks with a granby roll.

    they are also HUGE suckers for inside switches. its also very natural to land in a "cow boy" head and arm". side control feels very natural. i also feel that most of the sweeps from the guard are ineffective becuase i can feel them from 3.6 miles away and know to shift my weight.

    just my experiance.
