I do too. I'm pretty sure they would beat my ass, then arrest me, then maybe beat my ass again.
I was doing a demo one time and showing how a throw is a big movement-primarily-so learn it
by making the biggest motions first. Kind of like how you learn how to forge a signature by projecting it on the wall and trace it real big then progressively smaller until you get it into finer and finer motor-skills.
My guy Ric started laughing and I them remembered that he's a Cali Detective.
"Ummm, allegedly the method, so I've heard; sir :-)"
I don't partake of the toking as much as I did back in my teens, so to speak, but the way they train at the places I frequent preclude me from even entertaining the thought of getting high prior to any training session.
Seriously, I'd have my face knocked around so much I'd have parkinsons at the end of the week.
I did try rolling while high with my younger brother some years ago. Not that much fun. Personally, I gassed within a minute. I've read that marijuana messes with the way oxygen is carried in the blood. In fact, I believe I read about it on some weightlifting-related site, perhaps. I have observed that one acquaintance of mine, who is a habitual stoner, goes to the gym every other day but doesn't look like he's ever done a pushup in his life... that is, flabby and soft all over, for lack of a better way to describe him.
Eddie Bravo swears by it, though. Works for some and not for others, I guess.
Like him or not, everyone has to admit he's got some solid jiu-jitsu.

I wouldn't do anything to get myself arrested or worse, kicked out, least of all take a few hits beforehand. That's just common-fucking-sense, guys.
Pretty sure Eddie Bravo is just a good Jiu jitsu guy, and also happens to like pot. I believe there is no correlatory evidence, and he has propagated this myth so much so that it's created a placebo effect amongst other people.
Did you know masturbating before class relaxes you, too? If I ever get to be a famous BJJ'er, I'll attribute it to post-masturbation rolling.
Rolling stoned is a good thing if you're smacked enough to geek out on a position and knowledgable to come up with something coherent. If you're a run of the mill blue you need to be listening to the instructor and thinking clearly instead of coming up with new ways to pull your foot out of your ass.
Very nicely said.

hey ******, maybe you should think before you speak.
