    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

    Yoga helped my back. YMMV. IANAL. WTFE.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    I did hot yoga for a month, and asides from the fact you have lithe, sweaty women doing nice poses, it was good exercise in the interim when I stopped training for neck problems. I just told the instructor about my neck problems, and during the 90min session, she would say during a particular pose "If you have neck problems, you can modify it like blah blah blah..."

    Just make sure you bring your own water bottle, towel, and mat. Most yoga mats gets very slippery once you start getting sweat all over it, so the towel will provide traction so you won't injure yourself. You may even want to bring a frozen bottle of water and sip from it as the class goes on. 110-120 degree room will thaw that thing out in almost no time.

    There are two considerations. One is cost, which was a factor for me in being able to continue with it after the trial period was up. The other is ideological - some people hate the fact that the guy who "invented" Bikram Yoga has a copyright on his program when others feel that the poses are generic and are "free-market."

    I know this sounds weird, but when I took Yoga (my ex-sister in law was an instructor) it helped me have great bowel movements.
    I mentioned this one night and she said that one of the benefits of Yoga was that it helped this kind of thing because of the way you stretched and moved around.
    It also helped my felxibility and balance tremendously.

    On one hand, I've seen some yoga people perform some very impressive feats of strength and flexibility.

    On the other hand, it's cloaked in so much mystical bullshit that I have a very hard time taking it seriously.

    It's good stretching, but it's just stretching. If you can find someone to teach it cheap/free, it might be worth looking into, but otherwise it's the non-martial-arts equivalent of McDojoism.

    I am very un flexable and stiff which is why hot yoga interests me. However it's expensive, far and I sweat like a pig.

    I mean I am a sweaty, sweaty man.

    But I think I am going to try it for a month
