Well it's sport ju-jitsu I think. I haven't discussed it that much in depth with my new Sensi. I called him up on the phone and now I just finished my first free trial. No I haven't had any prior grappeling knowledge except the odd arm-bar and triangle chokes ect. But not from a real instructor. As well I obviously watch alot of mixed martial arts and applied what I've seen there alot with training partners. But the sweeps and rolls and takedowns... no.
How was it?
Amazing. My sensi was fairly impressed with my ability to pick up and apply the techniques he was teaching... but he also told me I look like a deer in the headlights everytime I went to the ground. What I really liked about it was the constant training with the partner contrary to the Kata's and fresh air technique. It was drill drill drill. It's also nice not to have to teach for a couple hours before doing any training for a change. As well at the end of most classes he hold's a free for all. Once you tap out you get off the matt and wait till a certain amount of other's are tapped and you enter again.
I would definitly recommened you pick up that BJJ as soon as possible. (But make sure it's a club that does a bit of stand-up work as well, because If your only past knowledge is wrestling... your still might have troubles applying it if you can't defend yourself well enough to bring the fight to the ground, or if there is more then one attacker.
