    How long are your classes?

    We were training 2 hours 2-3 nights per week, but have had a rash of nagging injuries recently and most of the people I train with are out. Nothing major, muscle pulls and soft tissue strains.

    Our instructor is going to try shortening classes as a way to alleviate the injuries, down to probably 1:15 per night, but being tighter with the drills and spending more time grappling.

    1 hour of technique and then drilling the technique and the last 10 minutes of that hour goes into live grappling with that technique in mind.

    Then there's 1 hour of randori afterwards which is optional.

    1hr boxing drills, 1hr focus mitts (30mins per person) mon/wed
    2hr muay thai/kickboxing drilling on tues
    1hr kickboxing, 1hr thai pads (30mins per person) thurs

    I switch back and forth between boxing and mt/kb because I can only take two nights off a week. They also have sub-wrestling after boxing but I'm too tired by the end of the class :(

    1 hour of instruction/drilling
    up to 1 hour of free rolling, but most of us don't make it past 30 minutes and are gassed.

    There are a helluva lot of people at my gym with nagging injuries too, but I'm one of the younger guys there and most of the guys are well into their mid 30s. Things just don't heal up as easy or as quick, and I've even got a bunch of little crap that never seem to get better.

    I was in a college Tae Kwon Do club. The only injuries people missed class for were major broken bones.

    I miss being 19 and having zero recovery time.

    2 hours 3 sessions a week BJJ - Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
    1.5 hours 3 sessions a week Judo - Monday, Wednesday, Friday

    BJJ, we start with drills for the first 45 minutes, then free rolling for the rest of the session

    Judo, we stretch out for 15 minutes, do drills for 20 minutes, uchikomi for 10 minutes straight (fucking hell). 30 minutes of newaza and then 15 minutes of tachiwaza (stand up). Judo is rough as hell on the body!

    Here's a question for everybody, as we were talking about it last night in class.

    I assume that most gyms work the same way we do.

    Come in, warm up (shrimp, do some really low impact movement drills, maybe run a little bit)
    Stretch
    Technique
    Light drilling a position (try to keep mount/try to stay sideways on the bottom in half guard while the top guy works to pass)
    Free rolling


    I feel like by the time we've gone over technique for 30 minutes, I'm pretty damned cold agian. Last night I popped my knee trying to snake it out of half guard drilling a position.

    Anybody have a better way of doing things?

    Our grappling classes are after 90 minutes of kickboxing/conditioning, so we are pretty warm from that. If anyone comes only to grappling they are supposed to warm up on their own.

    I don't know how it compares to other schools but when we are learning a technique, after it is explained we drill it. So we'll spend 5 minutes explaining then 15 minutes drilling. Then another 5 minutes explaining the next step or transition, or maybe a reversal to the previous position, then more drilling it. So it's not a class really split by technique then drilling, but both together for the whole regular period of class. Then about 30 minutes of rolling or more at the end of class.
