Would this interfere and contradic my training in BJJ? Or is it do able? (Just imagin I am a purple belt in BJJ and begin Karate as a White belt; During a sparing session during class I woop up some poor dude)
I'm taking Karate (Shotokan) and BJJ right now. Theire completely compatible, and theres no striking in BJJ and no ground work in Karate. The farthest to the ground I ever go in Shotokan sparring is taking the opponent down and punching him while he's down, that gives 3 points. I usually have BJJ for two hours, and then an hour and a half of karate right after. The BJJ is my warm up, and theire both completely doable independently.
