Stick with your goals. Good luck.
Thanks for the reply. It is important that I get some experience in amateur boxing as I've explained, for my career. So that aspect I don't think will be an issue.

The problem will be training with the Gracie club in my city, my coach hates the guy...but then again he has beef with a lot of coaches and promoters around here lol

I think I will alternate boxing twice and BJJ once, with BJJ twice and boxing once the following week to get a reasonable amount of training in each. But yeah I like the idea of dropping in for the odd session to keep up old ties, there are some great guys at the club so I wouldn't want to lose touch.

Thanks again for replying bro.
