    that's what my instructor told me when i asked this question! focus on the core muscle groups and stamina. hope this helps a fellow bjj newbie.

    and oh, empty your stomach before training, especially when your partners' commonly used moves is knee-on-belly!:laughing7

    As said 20 times above, to prepare for BJJ do BJJ.

    I think it can even be beneficial to not be in great shape before you start because then you won't be able use your fitness as a crutch.

    I've seen some new people who come into our gym in great shape but take a while to learn good technique. They are fit enough to muscle their way into position or spaz out of stuff when rolling, so that's what they end up relying on when pressed. Conversely, my small size and cardio issues have taught me to concentrate hard on my defense because I don't have the energy to spare on bad technique.

    I can definitely recommend going along to Andy Roberts. Andy runs both beginner and intermediate/advanced classes. A great place to train.

    I'm not a BJJ-er but from watching people in action I think it might be a good idea to embark on a stretching program of some kind. Aside from being useful for some techniques it should also reduce the chance of injury a little.

    Does this mean you're incredibly tough or a huge *****?

    Not to beat the dead horse anymore, but the best way to get fit for BJJ is BJJ. Butit would not hurt to start a different program to assist with the training. I suggest you look up Crossfit and Crossfit Endurance. The Endurance program will help prepare you for your Marathon. You have to keep Specificity in mind when training for something.
