    I started with occasional Sambo class at 14 but still had a hunger to larp. Asked bullshido about ninjutsu schools and got schooled. Lmao.

      Did TKD as a kid but not much.
      I knew bjj was the truth when I saw Royce wreck everyone as a kid.
      i didn't start training until like 2008 though.
      The Caucasian always has stronger strength and when comes to grappling, Caucasians mostly win easily. I do know grappling and if I used it on Asians my size, it works. - Kung Fu dude that got waxed at OneFc try out.

John Danaher is one of the highest figures in the sport and he has 3 hip replacements, no ligaments in either of his knees, several damaged disks, and the list goes on. He is still able to practice. I'd strongly suggest checking out a local BJJ place and giving it a month or two (after the apocalypse is over, ofc)
        I have been training sporadically in BJJ for over a decade now. I know pretty well what I can do and cannot do. I have a bad hip and no means to have it replaced. I cannot even get up the floor on my own on one side after doing minor stretching, much less shrimp or twist with someone on top of me. I have multiple disk damage and last time I tried to do a fancy guard move my back cracked loudly so that everyone around me could hear it. I tried to teach a beginner a simple armbar from guard and my hip would not let me position the legs to do it, something I could do in my sleep just a year and a half ago. I have a collapsed ankle so I can no longer do most kicks or throws. I no longer spar. Much less roll. I can barely walk sometimes. I have trouble climbing stairs.

        When I say I can do karate, it is the crap karate I am expected to do at the place I used to go. I have 35+ years of experience on karate and other standup arts, so I can teach and do basics without much trouble because I can do it without unnecessary tension and I know well what moves I can do and which ones cannot. I do mostly bag work without kicks now.

        And all of this is now purely academic. All schools are now closed because of Covid. I have not done anything but simple stretchs and shadow boxing for months. I have lost the last bits of flexibility and endurance I had. I don't know if I will ever get anything back now.

          Have you tried the YogaforBJJ program? Sebastian is a great teacher. He recovered from 4 herniated disks with yoga, and generally speaking its a fantastic way to restore mobility to your body.

            As a yoga instructor now, I can honestly say yoga has done more for my sciatica and slipped disk in the 200 hour practical course I did than any physio I got over 18 months. I honestly think I'd focus down the yoga route these days
