    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    When you can't train BJJ anymore, what style would you take instead?

    I'm about to embark on yet once again my path with BJJ and hopefully can go longer than a year without something breaking. I've made up my mind, another injury that will put me out for over a year and I'm changing styles that are less strenuous on the body.

    My main choice is Aikido. Thoughts, flames, comments?

    Obligatory try Judo. I heard that it is gentle.

    Another wrestling art? Man, I don't know any of those that are gentle on the body. Personally, I'd say one of the Philipino arts that contains the whole package. I've kept training Kali with broken bones and not been re injured. Also has grappling in it too.

    I am a previous Judoka. It's harder on the body than BJJ imho.

    I was toying with FMA, since I'm a Flip and all. Mostly with knives.

    That is in the top 5 of my choices.

    I was joking, I'm a previous BJJer and I agree, Judo is harder on the body. That was my comedy part, falling flat on its funny fucking face.

    Alright, general discussion part, being serious, if it is no injuries you want, TKD for flexibility?

    Toshindo. No I'm not kidding. Toshindo is ninjers (at least some) actually doing it right.

    Also do Yoga. Trust me between falling out of planes and fending off younguns trying to prove something, Yoga has kept me going.

    You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
