Greetings!

I am too excited not to share - I start BJJ classes again next Tues after a 10 yr hiatus!

I caught the bug really bad after getting a chance to train with some top-notch BJJ folks in CA this past January. Upon coming home, I Googled BJJ in my city, and low and behold, where I thought the well was dry I found a school run by someone who used to train at the school I trained at in the 90s. An email or two later, and I get to start training again next week!

This is considered my "birthday present", so my lovely bride has consented to allow me to not only do BJJ on Tuesday nights, but to continue to teach at the karate club on the same nights as well (summer karate classes end an hour before BJJ begins). Once the fall comes, my committment will have to be to the karate club (as our class times change again in the fall and they overlap with BJJ). But until then, I can do both! We'll see how long I can keep up 2 1/2 hrs of MA training every Tuesday, but this is truly the best of both worlds!

So, I cannot wait to start what I have been calling "My summer of Jiu-Jitsu". I will let you all know how the first class back after my hiatus goes next week.

Thanks!
Mike

Sounds good, Mike! I think cross-training is a great idea, and I wish more MAists took advantage to do so.

I absolutely love BJJ and can't wait to get back myself, heck back to any MA training. Enjoy yourself.
