So when I was 18 or so, I did ju-jitsu for a couple of years. Got a green belt, and then decided beer and ganja was the way forward.
Cue this monday (33 years later), and a friend said he'd teach our kids ju-jitsu.
So I go along to see what they would do, but they chicken out and I get roped into doing the lesson.
Still aching big time, but it felt reasonably good.
Wondering whether its a bright idea to keep it up, even if the kids can't be arsed.

If you are really wanting input, I would say no. But, that's just me. I bruise easily. :mrgreen:

Brazilian jujitsu is the pinnacle of wrestling, just ask Cormier

Carlos Gracie (September 14, 1902 – October 7, 1994) along with his younger brother Hélio Gracie, and fellow students Luis Franca and Oswaldo Fadda are credited with being the primary developer of modern Jiu-Jitsu in Brazil. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is primarily based on knowledge from Mitsuyo Maeda, widely considered to be the martial-arts patriarch of the Gracie Family. Carlos Gracie acquired his knowledge of Jiu-Jitsu by studying in Belem under Maeda and his students. As he taught the techniques to his brothers, he created a martial arts family with Hélio and with other members of the Gracie family who provided key contributions to the style.

When I was in my mid 20's I worked with a kyokushinkai karate exponent that convinced everybody he came into contact with to join his karate club. A bunch of us drank his kool aid and signed up.....fast forward after about ten years of severe training, he had a relationship breakup and the club disintegrated. Now whenever I see this guy I get lured into a training session or a grading or some other foolishness, which cripples me for days sometimes weeks afterwards.....It's a skill you never lose, but my now 57 year old body takes longer and longer to recover. :P The kicker is that he is ten years older than me, and still competes at the highest level.....The martial arts are a great way to keep fit, you've just got to keep it up.

Nobody today seems interested in anything but "MMA" (multiple marshal arts) and too, too many seem to want to learn it strictly to be able to slam the fucking crap out of everybody else! Really, that's all I ever hear! :shock:

I've been watching Lucha Underground for the past few months. Great stuff! The only pro wrestling I watch on a regular basis.
