Any BJJ'ers here?

A few of the guys at my gym ride motorcycles, so how many of you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

I've been training for 4.5 years now. I'm a purple belt at Alliance Jiu-Jitsu here in Minnesota. My upcoming goals are to compete in the IBJJF Chicago Open in March 2012 and the IBJJF Pan Ams in March 2012 as well. Other than that, I want to keep competing, keep training to be as good as I possibly can and keep assisting with teaching. I would love to take a motorcycle trip around the world and travel to as many gyms as possible to train--wouldn't that be an awesome and unique trip?

So, any other BJJ'ers here?

How do you wash the taste out of your mouth after one of these training sessions?

That second J makes all the difference, doesn't it?

Not going so well eh? Might work better in the Sports forum, or whatever it's called. But, yeah, I like a little BJJ. Don't mind leaving off the second J either... still like it.

Yes, I do. But its a whole different ball game when you throw some striking into the mix, try that. Use the little 4 ounce MMA gloves. I train this way for work, its just a little more realistic for me.

And, my wife and I were in Minneapolis for a big 4 day meeting last month! We were thinking about taking the gi's and looking for a place to check out, but in the end we didn't...

Edit: which school there do you train at?



Awesome, congratulations!

Me too!

Purple belt at Dark Horse BJJ in Longmont, CO. Doing it now for about 6 years. I know a lot of guys who train who are also big into motorcycling, but great to see there are several BJJ players on ADV!
