I put BJJ as there was no option for traditional JJ, I also train karate and a little TKD for kicks. My dojo has MMA training on a Saturday but I can't justify the extra time to my GF with doing at least 2 nights per week already.

Stop sitting there watching on TV and do some JJ or BJJ your appreciation for ground game and submission will double virtually immediately.

I loved learning the clinch and grapple work and the elbows add an edge over kick boxing.

If you find a good gym that pushes you hard but makes it fun you find yourself kicking the crap out fo everything and loving it!

Ramon Dekkers (to me ... the best fighter ever) + Anderson Silva + Renato "Babalu" Sobral + Chuck Lidell + Peter Aerts + Forrest Griffin + Nick Diaz + Roger Huerta + Paul Taylor (get a ground game please) + Lyoto Machida + Gonzaga = LIGHTS OUT!

You should be able to train Krav Maga then, which is quite similar to JJ, my friend trains in it in the UK and he loves it.

Training in subs is usually a good way of finding any MMA gyms available too.

GET RID OF THE LAZYNESS DUDE!!!!!!
