I don't know. I can do a 30-minute marathon roll before gassing out, but when I hit focus mits I'm dog tired within minutes. Maybe the body just gets used to certain activities.

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

I did a couple of month's worth of lessons.
I could last 5 rounds of 3 minutes easy in TKD, going practically full bore most of the time.
Wrestling kicked my ass. The difference in these two, as TeM pointed out was the way you use your muscles. In wrestling, your muscles needed to endure holding positions, and also to explode moving through positions.
TKD, you had to be able to explode, relax, and tense, in time with the rhythm of the spar. This meant you used your muscles differently.
Depending on which your body was used to, it might go easier or rougher on you. I can speculate that someone new to striking arts (doing purely striking) would tire out very quickly, even if they were accomplished grapplers, because their body doesn't know where those sweet "resting spots" are to keep them from using too much energy. Just as when I went into wrestling, I didn't know how or when to rest to keep my stamina good.
I know this didn't answer your question, or say anything you didn't already know. But now that "you haven't postededed!" message will leave me alone, and I can refer someone to this post at a later date and time.
