    Keep in mind that BJJ classes are 1 hour each (unless you take gi and no-gi back to back and consider that a 2 hour class). Whereas in Judo, most classes are 2 hours long, minimum.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Oh, dude, this sentence was craptacularly retarded. Sorry :tongue3:

    But honestly, I think I might rather learn BJJ anyway, because i hear the Judo ruleset is kind of restrictive (no leg locks, only 10 seconds on the ground, limited ne-waza training... it reminds me of point sparring which is one reason I'm getting sick of TKD).
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    my instructor just emailed me asking who wanted to go to the starrett cup 2008

    if he's holding tournaments, he's probably pretty legit.
