I decided to join the high school wrestling team because I have two hours between my last class and practice, so I have time to do my homework.

Get what wrestling while you can.

Its great cardio and training.

You're gonna have to cut back on the BJJ classes because wrestling is a big commitment.

Most schools don't cut because people tend to cut themselves because of the level of work.

If you don't want to wrestle in highschool, you can always find a college, wrestling club or mma school to teach you some.

if your doing BJJ 4-5 times a week, why take HIGHSCHOOL wrestling? chances are their only going to teach you how to score points.

Know what they go in college?

Teach you how to score points.

Wrestling isn't a self defense art so it doesn't teach you how to beat people up or win figts.

They teach you how to score points in college wrestling too.

Unless your talking about WWE wrestling...

And what's the point of having a good BJJ game if you can't get the fight to the ground?

Well, I'm in high school, so wouldn't that make the most sense?

I took wrestling in high school and it has many advantages beside a sport.

1 in wrestling you develop a core stringth that is amazing and it will never go away. It will become weaker but never go away.

2 wrestling does help in self defence alot because of your strength.

3 you gain alot of agresstion and can capitalize on position to dominate a fight.

4 you will also learn alot of good throws and takedowns. Ask about the over under ankel pick duck under and sweep singal were among my favorit.

I have actualy been able to tapout many experianced BJJ fighters with my year wrestling and very little Bjj traing.

-Wrestling will teach you good takedowns, a bjj guy with good takedowns is a dangerous person, also you can hurt people with takedowns.

-Wrestling incorporates throws too alot of wrestling takedowns from the clinch are judo style takedowns.

-As for self defense most people will have no idea what to do once you put them on their back or slam them on cement or something.

-You will also learn how to sprawl.

-Like americanfighter said you will get that core strength that wrestlers are known for as well as the amazing cardio.

-Yea you will learn how to score points but it all has to do with positioning and takedowns which goes hand in hand with mma.

-I would say highschool wrestling is a good choice

I agree, a bjj fighter with good takedowns is dangerous. But if you have a half decent bjj instructor you should be learning takedowns anyway. But yes wrestlers do have excellent core strength and balance. So if you can do both, more power to ya!

I have a GREAT BJJ instructor, but it is well known that takedowns are not BJJ's strong point.
