Any MMA or BJJ practitioners out there?
Do you train for self-defence only or compete also?
I'm out off training at the moment due to a rib fracture (and writing exams) but would love to know some more MMA/BJJ people on Skimble for me to follow.
Im a Jeet Kune Do Concepts instructor. Love martial arts
Krav Maga here!
I've been doing bjj for just under 4 years. Love it. I work out of town so I only compete and train while im in town and have time now. I also used to teach once a week as well.
I've just returned to MMA/BJJ/Wrestling - the rib's better finally! A few new guys have joined - absolute beasts(!) - I'm only 69kg so it's hard work sparring guys 20-25kg heavier than me. Thankfully I held my own against them - even caught one in a triangle and a sleeve choke (though he managed to survive - amazingly!). I'm very light and also the most experienced white belt in my club so I can always see new guys sizing me up - they then go absolute all-out when sparring me which opens up a few possibilities for me to exploit their mistakes - but boy they really do tire me out! I have to say going back after 6-weeks out I felt a bit intimidated!!! Haha :-D
