It's time for my first post so here it goes:


I have been lurking on Bullshido for awhile. Just started studying jiu-jitsu, and I am very out of shape (need weight loss and aerobic conditioning). I enjoy the site and the information it provides.

In spite of what some other web-sites would have you believe, we here at Bullshido.net welcome you, mike321, with open arms and hope that you will share with us your unique experiences and ideas on the martial arts.... so that we may then make fun of those experiences and ideas.

Thanks Rock Ape. I am checking out the physical conditioning. Missing a lot of my old wrestling moves for lack of conditioning. I tire out and do some horrible technique.

Welcome to Bullshido. Which kind of Jiu Jitsu are you doing?

11/07/2007 2:28pm,
It is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. A brown belt is renting space at a local karate dojo and I signed up for lessons. I like the sequence of the class: about 10 minutes warmup and drills, 30 minutes of teaching technique, 20 minutes of rolling, which seems to go on well past the end of class, but I have a family and can't stay all evening. I am glad to see that those I am training with who have the time do go for the long live training sessions.
