Welcome aboard, ki-ai master! The Bullshido staff would welcome you personally, but the thing is they’re busy keeping the peace, so they’ve apointed me, a bot, to pat you on the back and assure you that in no way will you be harmed during your stay here at BS.net. Your views on the martial arts, your philosphy, maybe even your entire reason for being will be challenged, shattered, reorganized, melted down, and forged into something new and shiny, but we swear it will only hurt a little bit… at first.

This should probably be in the fitness forum.

Thigh adduction for closed guard, triangle, armbars.
Twisting situps for kimura, sweeps.
Grip strength.
Basic push and pull exercises like bench press, rows.

Google Ross Enamait. He has really good workout programs for fighters. He sells some books (which are really good), but you can probably structure a good workout based on the free stuff on his website.
