Integrating Japanese Ju Jitsu to my training. Advice?

Is it wise to incorporate traditional Ju Jitsu into my current training regime. I'm getting a bit bored of just doing Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and I've no need for wrestling seeing as I'm quite puny.

I want to do Japanese Ju Jitsu too, not looking forward to the Kata though, it's just the gayest thing in the world. Do you think it's worth me doing?

Why do you want to learn JJJ? I would suggest Judo or Sambo instead. JJJ is pretty useless if you already know bjj and muay thai. Also, how long have you been training bjj? It seems weird that you're getting "tired of it" as it's such a complex martial art that takes years and years to master/understand

I'm getting bored of only doing Muay Thai every day and I can only do BJJ 3 days a week. I want to do more of it but there's nowhere else near to me that does it. I just want something else to do as well that will be good for my fighting training instead of sitting on my ass
