    Which MMA gyms in particular? I have been training MMA but not asmuch as BJJ, If theres a good MMA gym i could consider training MMA alongside BJJ at Gracie Barra. Depends on my uni time tables aswell i guess.
    UTC looks pretty good, do a student package which is still expensive for students at £30 but get 12 classes per week and is a good gym in it's own right.(weights and stuff)

    I did about a year in tokyo, had a short break from martial arts when I came back and then took another 10-11 months to get up to purple belt , but that was training at least 4 times a week. I had trained judo when I was a kid too.You should push hard for ppl belt, not only does it mean you are competition standard, but it means you no longer have to get your shoulder ****ed up being the blue belt that the sensei demos the kimura on
    ah okay, sounds like you been training for a while then, I do train at Gracie Barra 4 days a week + free sparring on saturdays, so I should be able to soon, the best way to prove your worthy of ranking is GB is to win comps

    Agree to disagree, but i don't think my suggestion of going to an BJJ class taught by a high level BJJ practioner to learn BJJ is the same as going to Fitness and Health HND to become a doctor.
    ok it was just an analagy , but my point was its always better to train something properly. also I don't think mma training is a good pairing for Bjj - I have seen mma people get tornup in class, they lack technique yes, but also flexibililty. Im man enough to admit I took yoga classes for 3 months a while back, helped bjj sparring tremendously. And met a bird there too

    I dnt do it seriously anymore, I sometimes go training with friends and we do light sparring. getting to brown is a big jump in my mind takes a lot of commitment, and prob injuries. I would recommend keeping very fit and not getting too bulky it interferes with movement on the ground, even doing something like yoga to compliment bjj training

    That does sound good, even just for the gym, because at i spend around 70 for BJJ/MMA and Gym..

    ah okay, yeah its a lot of training and work outside sessions, at Gracie Barra we seem to be more comp focused than belts, the bests come naturally as you improve your training.. we do cardio and stretch sessions twice a week to help with flexibility

    Yeah, there is a big difference between MMA guys who dabble in BJJ to help their MMA and BJJ guys who train MMA just for fun but focus on BJJ
