    Actually, on second thought, BJJ with a bad leg could be nearly as frustrating as judo, depending on whether it's strong enough to put up any resistance to someone attempting to pass her guard on that side. I'm just going to stick with my "depends on the instructor" advice.

    WhiteShark - I looked more through the link you posted. I didn't realize that there were separate judo competitions for disabled athletes, which is a big pro. I'm sure that doesn't exist in BJJ.

    On a side note, Jean-Jacques Machado has no fingers on his left hand.

    Wow! none? Like only a thumb or a club hand?

    PS-If he has a hook he may be the ninja defeating Pirate we've been looking for!

    Only a thumb, as far as I can tell.

    She should study the Silat.

    1) angulation and biomech is for smaller to fight larger. not force on force.

    2) poekulan uses natural weaponry, like elbows, knees, and hips. no need for conditioning, and can strike larger people without damaging her body. many who use fists, cannot manage to strike with enough power. correct punching takes a while to learn, and she will always have a mass disadvangtage in relation to this. besides fist are for men, and open hands are for women, in a natural sense. watch people in natural situations, men ball up their fists and women slap and pull, instinctively. Silat has a lot of slapping and pulling actions. with a woma's generally lower center of gravity, the pulling techniques can be quite effective.

    3) pressure point studies are often part of Silat.

    4) Silat teaches weaponry, as well.

    Like I said before , what about where you train. It seems to have several choices discuss with the instructors to see what they cn offer considering her challenges with balance and try them out. The right style will be the one SHE can use.

    After reading Jekyll's threads I bring back an old sig.......

    Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.
