Wajutsu? No. Caol Uno does that, and he got pwned by BJ Penn, and seeing as BJ Penn is my favourite fighter, I'd rather not get pwned by him.

First, if you're "quite puny" then there's alot of need for wrestling. Both the conditioning and the skills will help you handle larger opponents.

That said, I wouldn't take JJJ if you already have BJJ in your training regimen. While I won't say BJJ is just straight out better, it's definitely more appilcable the JJ in mixed martial arts.

There are alot of ways to go from where you are now, the first one I suggest is taking up wrestling, catch wrestling is probably the best if you can find a place that does it. Submission grappling would also be really helpful, as it incorporates alot of wrestling skills.

The other way to go is to do Krav Maga, which will help you with your speed and get you thinking outside the box.

Sambo can also do that.

Alright well fair enough I need to do wrestling, but the gym I'm at that does catch wrestling does it on a tuesday morning when I work, so I can't do that. There's not many other gyms that do it that I can get to, so I guess I'll have to get a few privates on the weekends.

It'll also be good to that that private instruction time with an instructor. Group classes are good because it gives you a chance to work with a bunch of training partners and see what other people are doing wrong or right, but I definitely think that having an instructor work with you alone every once in a while is a good thing, especially when you're leading up to a fight.

Well seeing as I only know the basics of wrestling, e.g. the single and double leg takedown, the clinch and a basic sprawl, so I could ask my trainer to elaborate on these and just practice them with me. Cheers
