Is there anything you would recommend as in ways to train/lift and build strength while not losing too much flexibility. I mean we've all seen the guy at the gym who is absolutely huge but doesn't look like he could even scratch his own ass.
Hey dude, if you like you can start a thread in the PT forums. We don't really have a single thread (IIRC) dealing specifically with flexibility training. See my sig where I have some links to previous discussions on that topic. If that's not sufficient or if they don't quite answer your question, let's make a new thread where the hive mind can discuss about it in detail ;)

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
