    Don't worry about it. You'll get in shape by going to class. Just don't waste time saying "ah, I'll get in shape then go" because that is time you could spend learning the techniques, just go now.

    i had the same ideas you had about getting in shape first (and believe me i was no where near being in shape). Fortunately I asked the cage crew took their advice and just signed up for BJJ. After a month I am down 14lbs and feeling better physically and mentally every week. JUST GO DO IT!!!!

    Your idea of what shape you want to be in will change after your start. Just go to class.

    that's a lot to learn. good luck man, just go for it.. important thing to learn is how to put the two together so that it's not two separate arts but melds seamlesly together.

    you have to be in good shape to compete at high levels, not to go to class.
