    So who are the mat rats on here and who are the keyboard warriors?

    I train at Team Nogueira Miami. I primarily do Muay Thai and gi/no gi jiujitsu, with wrestling once a week and the occasional MMA or Boxing class. I'll go for about 3 classes a night, twice a week. I do a little capoiera now and then but that doesn't count :) I'm also interested in catch wrestling, basically just via erik paulson videos on youtube because nobody at my gym does it. I've been training for about a year, but I only took it seriously for about 3 months before I got side kicked in the ribs and the resulting cartilage damage took me out of the gym for two and a half months. I just started getting back in shape over the last 2 weeks.
    The irritating part is that we were going to have a promotion ceremony 2 weeks after I got hurt, and because I hadnt been coming in I didnt get my promotion. So now I'm the white belt thats competing with the blues (but losing more than winning), tapping the greens, and being assigned to "teach-roll" with other whites.

    i train at http://www.aikijiujitsukungfu.com/. it was voted the most aggressive school on the east coast, so you better watch out. i've been training since i was 3 months old and have been letting sensei jerry hunt me once a month for about 5 years now. aiki jiujitsu kung fu has helped me kick my bad habits, defeat my fears and helped me to fight back!

    I train at Titan Martial Arts (www.titanmartialarts.com) in Norman, Oklahoma. Currently I'm only doing gi bjj but I plan to add no-gi soon. Then muay thai some point down the line. I'm in no rush though, just adding things when I feel ready so I don't burn out.

    I personally feel like it's good for you to start striking as soon as possible, even if its very casually, just so that your body doesnt become too "trained" into any particular type of motion. Your muscles will specialize into slow twitch dominant if you do too much grappling and no striking or weight lifting

    I started BJJ in August so it hasn't been too long. I plan to start the Muay Thai thing no later than May but probably March or so. And I lift weights already.

    I train at CinciBJJ out in Fairfax, OH. It's more of a club and not a formal school so there aren't any fees. I go 1-2x a week depending on my work and school schedule. They do no gi and gi. A lot of the people that train there also go to Jim Kelly's school in Cincy.

    Plus two of my friends were personal trainers for beijing olympic athletes. If you really dont believe in muscle fiber specialization then thats your right I guess.

    t-nation has some great stuff, but it has an equal amount of complete shit.

    you can't argue muscle physiology and fiber specialization, but to say you'll be slow twitched dominant from grappling is retarded.

    Did a year and a half of boxing, some MT before that and about a year of Krav Maga before that. Waiting for my insurance to kick in again so I can start judo or jits and go back to boxing. For now just training at home.
