I'm new to this or any forum really. Which is weird because I am a professional computer programmer. Any way I line in the Capital Region of NY, and have been studying Tae Kwon Do for 3 years and I just began Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu. I also wrestled in highschool back in Philadelphia.

So candej, you decided to go ahead and register huh? Cool. Don't forget to review your dojo (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=83).

Welcome to Bullshido!

I recently started writing a BJJ Beginner FAQ (http://slideyfoot.blogspot.com/2006/10/bjj-beginner-faq.html) on my blog, which should hopefully answer some of your questions as a new BJJ student.

As I mention in that FAQ, for further reading on BJJ, I'd recommend the following threads:
