If you're smaller than your training partners, then I will encourage you to train to refine your technique over amassing physical strength. I'm not saying to stay away from gym outside of rolling on the mat, but let's be realistic: You could be a champion power lifter and if you're barely 2 months into Jiu-Jitsu training, I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that you'd get taken to school and tapped.
On that thought, concentrate on technique and cardio instead. Even the strong guys wilt when they run out of gas.
It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree
... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved
