Damn... that explains why some people give up their backs so quickly. I'm not falling for that one again.

I wanted to learn to fight, joined a gym, and found myself skipping out on boxing and going to a ton of JJ classes. (I swear I'm going to start going to boxing and KB again.)

There's a deeper explanation, but I have work to do and don't have time to go into it.

I've been doing striking for years, and I always felt like something was missing. There was this nagging feeling that if someone grabbed me, my strikes would be negated. Also, I sparred with some people who've done grappling arts, and when they got their hands on me, they almost always pwnt me.

I eventually started to just wrestle around with my friends. It turned out to be quite fun. Also, having seen some random vids of BJJ vs [insert style] I figured that it couldn't hurt to get some actual skill in the craft. So I tried out classes, found it that it was even more of a blast than grappling with random friends.

Honestly I just wanted to know how to break fools arms and legs. A lot of people threaten that shit, few can actually do it.

I come from a big martial arts family with people being high dan ranks in Karate, competitive Boxers etc.

I did some Karate when i was little but i had to quit because it was to much money.

Later i started to get into MMA so i started to get back into Martial Arts and i thought "Ive always wanted to do Judo" which i had for many years so i decided to go to the Judo websites and found a club near me and so i went...

I've been grappling since before I could spell BJJ, before I even knew what it was. My friends remember doing wrestling matches on the playground and I would choke people out. It's not really a fighting system for me, it's a lifestyle, going to class is just a way to do it where it's legal.

Heath131 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Well basically I had about 4 years of striking experience under my belt and wanted to complete my range of skills so I began training BJJ

Yeah I have to say Irons story is similar to mine my friends and I always used to wrestle eachother (with submissions) and after I submitted a wrestler ranked 3rd in state I figured I'd give BJJ a shot. I'm cutting weight/building cardio right now to enroll in a Gracie Jiujitsu school next spring
