    Since technique forum rules require me to post something remotely useful, I'll take this opportunity to point out that I'm no closer to training BJJ than I was when I started this thread; I had to delay my six month plan by about six months.
    Whats the hold up? Injury, or "I must get fit enough to attempt an exercise that will get me fit"?

Anyways, I would like to know if any of you guys know anything about mats. My old mats are worn out and I want to buy a more durable one, to last for about 5 years so that my brothers could also use the mats. What kind of mats should I buy? Puzzle, Aikido mats, MT mats or what?
    I've got some Swain mats that roll up. I have had them for almost 8 years and still holding strong. We make sure to put them up after every use(which means we use a lot of mat tape) and we clean them every time. Blood is cleaned up immediately.

    @Sang, I think it is because he has other medical issues that he is trying to get stabilized through proper treatment.

    Due to years of fatigue, I have to train myself to maintain a regular schedule again. I have no business taking on BJJ if I can't manage to eat, sleep, and shower on time in the first place.*

    *Right when I was about to get on my new diet and kick off the six month plan, a wave of fatigue hit which required months of recuperation.
