BJJ Poll: Do You Currently Train in a Combat Sport in Addition to BJJ?

by Caleb on April 4, 2009

Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners are rabid about their training, but there are some who make time to train in other combat sports too. Some of the most common are judo, muay-thai, mixed martial arts, etc. What about you?

Be sure to let us know in the comments below which other combat sports you train!

Every time I think that I would love to train something else, I realize if I had any extra time to train I probably should dedicate it to jiu-jitsu.

also cross-train judo, the “parent art”, of course… plus some non sportive martial arts.

judo is very important, and thankfully my gym is full of wrestlers so ill start focusing on that after the mundials.

Hey Caleb! The FightWorks Podcast inspires me every second I listen to the show! I train in Filipino Martial Arts (Pekiti Tersia Kali) and some western boxing while trying to save enough energy to attend BJJ classes Tues, Thurs & Sat at David Veira JJ (Gracie Barra school) here in St. Pete, FL. Keep up the excellent work and I look forward to syncing my podcasts every sunday!

I used to do Muay Thai and TMA along with BJJ but nowadays if I have extra time I use it to train more bjj/sw. I noticed that when I was training TMA that I would try to do bjj stuff on those classes so I decided to concentrate only on BJJ cos it rocks!
Because of bjj I lost my interest to flashy kicks and pressure points and all that sh**.
Now 6-8 times of bjj/sw per week does not leave u much time for anything else :)

Besides BJJ I train Hapkido.

my instructor is a BJJ black belt under John Machado and a 4th degree black belt in Hapkido under GM Song, Ho-Jin.
