Ironman how old r u and when did you teach BJJ to wrestlers? That would be cool if i had something like that at my school and do they have competitions?
I'm 16. I've been teaching BJJ and how to apply it in a fight to high school wrestlers since I was a freshman in highschool, about three years ago.

I took the GED last year so that I could study and teach MMA full time. We didn't have any competitions out here for BJJ, at least not any that I competed in, but I'd check if you have a local MA school or something that might hold them. You may have to go to NYC, but I'm sure that you could find some there.

Actually, I love suplexes for the reason that I am shorter than most of my training partners. I've found it very easy to enter in, clinch up on a taller sparring partner, and (because of my height) I'm already at a place to upset their center of balance (their hips). Once there, a quick pop of the legs and turn here or there, and you have one opponent on the ground wondering what the hell just happened.

Suplexes fall under Judo's application of Sutemi Waza (sacrifice techniques), where one sacrifices their own upright position to throw someone else. Most suplexes don't require that you actually lift your opponent completely off the ground. It just so happens to be that the most brutal ones will be those where you fully lift your opponent, as if you have the technique down well enough, you will be able to determine how hard and at what angle they actually land. As with most throws, technique means everything.

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.

The GED, or whatever its called, is the high school exit exam. You can take it early and get out of school and it's like the eqivalent of a highschool diploma.

I taught some after school, mostly during the last hour of their practice. It was almost always during the season, but there were a few guys that trained with me in the off season. For the guys that aren't multi-sport athletes I'd do some sparring and some more practical combat training.

no prob, it just seemed some were not sure what it ment usually those that do not know what it means either got a normal diploma like myself or have not graduated yet and do not know about a GED, while ok I do not think it is the way to go most businesses given the option will hire a person with a diploma over a GED all else being equal. GEDs are not bad in any sense on not easy to get as you have to learn the material anyway just you have to take a big test on all of it at once.
I took a GED practice test in high school my senior year for fun and I got a 99 on it so .. but then I have always been good at test taking never did home still hate the whole idea of homework, just don't tell my kids.
