College Wrestling

I've never wrestled in high school but I took a Uechi-Ryu class that had Krav Maga and BJJ lessons.

I plan on attending the Gracie Barra school at the UCF campus. After I got a black belt (if it takes 2 years or less) I was planning on trying college wrestling IF bjj is ok to use?

Sorry if this sounds totally dumb because I am new.

1. Would they even let me wrestle since I have no experience and is college a bad place to start a sport like wrestling?

2. Is BJJ allowed in wrestling and if so, would it be sufficient to get me up to a good level if I wanted to tryout for college wrestling after 2 years or so of training?

Again if this is totally dumb I apologize just let me know. Also if it isn't possible, will the Gracie Barra school have other competitions I could get into or point me to them?

Hey bud, I am not really sure what your goals are or what exactly you are trying to figure out but I'll give it a shot.

It sounds like you are interested in the grappling arts and possibly looking to compete. If this is the case, most legitimate BJJ and MMA places can provide the training and opportunity to do this.

In finding a legitimate school, in general, it takes 8-10+ years to get a BJJ black belt (IDK it might even be longer). My point is if you check out a school with alot of people with brown/black belts who got them in 1-2 years, this is not a good school. Look at someplace else.

In my opinion, if you want to learn this stuff, find a gym and show up regularly. There are no prerequisites. There are also no short cuts to getting "good". It takes alot of time and work to learn the techniques and make them functional. In short, there is ALOT of hard work involved but it is a blast to do and very rewarding on a personal level.

Good Luck

College wrestling is a great base for mma. However you bjj may not help
You. First wrestling you stay off your back at all cost bjj you want to never show your back and be on your stomach. 2 Lots of the sweeps and ground work require major joint manipulation that is illegal in wrestling. 3 lots of ground work in bjj involved connecting you hands and clinching your hands together or to your wrist and you never want to do that unless it is a pinning combo in wrestling because you lose 3 points for doing that. However bjj will help you with take downs and tdd. I knew a little judo when I wrestled and the trips and tries I knew helped alot. It will be hard to get on a wrestling team without wrestling experience.

If you want to do mma you are on a good path with all the grappling you are doing.

Best of luck to ya hope everything works out.

These are really good steps to promote the wrestling from the base. So we should show the interest and take the efforts to promote the wrestling culture among the youth.
