I wouldn't see why not. Just make sure you don't overtrain the erector spinae (the muscle that runs over your spine.) In my personal, armchair experience, I cannot go hard/heavy on both on the same workout or within a 48 hour period. For example, if I work squats at 6-7RMs, I can't do power cleans except with light weights (and viceversa). But that's just me.

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
Sounds like good advice. Appreciate it.
