    Hi,
    My name is righty. I am right handed.

    I started BJJ yet again. Please don't ask me the difference between a kimura and an americana.

    I always remember it by imagining an American waving a flag.

    new to martial arts and bjj

    Hi,
    My name is Will O. I'm from Toronto Canada. I started BJJ and muay thai 8 months ago, but because of a bad coach got seriously injured very quickly and spent 4 months disabled. Now I'm back - switched to a MMA style kickboxing from muay thai, and I've been going 4 solid months 5 days a week 3.5 hours of classes a day and another 2-3 hours of conditioning 3 days a week. 2 kickboxing classes and one BJJ class every day, except when we do judo throws occasionally, in which case I learn judo instead.

    I really love BJJ, I wish I found it sooner. This is the best thing i ever did, and I didn't find it till I was 31. Just hoping I'm not too old by the time I'm good to compete.

    Welcome to MAP! :D 31's a fine age for competing (particularly in BJJ), if you've got the conditioning and disposition for it. Won't know till you try. :evil: Cheers!

    Hey thanks for the welcome. Yeah I'm a personal trainer with a decent college education. I know my way around the weight room and how to condition myself... in theory. I have no practical experience training fighters. If anyone knows proven conditioning techniques for BJJ and MMA, I would be very interested in a private message with some links or details to things that are shown to work.
