    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.

        What about Tai Chi?

          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.

                    aiki jujitsu...its kinda like judo lite

                    Or Bando...it seems well balanced and the name is catchy.

                      I was going to say Tai Chi and really mean it. That was one of the reasons I started looking around. My knees are f-ed up and I've had this injury in my right hand that is starting to effect my ability to work. So I layed of the grappling and started doing Tai Chi. But legit Tai Chi, the school I am going to does competition push hands, San Shou tournaments, and grappling competitions. Though the grappling is not as much of the others.

                      The push hands had been really cool and actually helped my wrestling. If you find a good school, you will probably like it.

                      Oh and my arm healed up after about 3 months of not having it torqued on!!

                        You have clearly been meeting different Toshindoistas than I have. The stuff I've encountered made the booj look slick.

                          I was serious about Tai Chi as well, especially if you can find a teacher like this guy:

                            I know and I shared the same veiw point but I've met many of them that have went the right way. One who runs a school near hear is a MMA fighter and trains under Team ROC. The schools here work to see what will work and what doesn't. they spar hard (I've attended several sessions) which is way way ahead of your average buj.

                              TKD, maybe. But after years of Bullshido, TKD leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
