    This guy is very intelligent or at least has high potential to be very intelligent. He hasn't been hit in the head very much so he must be doing something right. I have a feeling he's going to dominate in the UFC

    When the coach had judo/wrestling background. Ben suggested same thing. We would drill a shitton.
    Most ppl burn out from these more hardcore sports vs bjj.
    Best to learn various grapplings arts to work better on base, grip fighting, etc.

    For the most part, most wrestlers do wrestling because they have the goal of competing and dominating. So wrestling classes are intense as fuck, and its good like that. Not everybody can handle it. Jiu-Jitsu is very similar however it is more "Normal people friendly" meaning they learn the techniques and everything but they dont necessarily kill themselves all the time. The goal of jiu-jitsu isnt to build fighters, is to educate and have people learn effective self defense for everyday life. Some jiu-jitsu schools train hard like wrestling gyms do, and some is for the the fun of it. Thats the main difference. It doesnt have to be insane all the time. Some do it to compete, some for self defense, some for health. 95% of people that train wrestling aim to compete and train hard. I do believe if jiu-jitsu schools would train as hard as wrestlers, jiujitsu would come up superior as far as grappling goes. But wrestlers are tough as fuck for a reason. They all train like animals, so jiu-jitsu guys struggle vs wrestlers cause wreslters are generally more powerful/explosive, which is really hard to deal with for everyone.

    you know what , from going from wrestling to jujitsu it took me a while to feeling ok with being on my back. but i don't really like how the drilling wasn't like wrestling. it was vary fast and just like oh here's this technique we are going to learn today and then they'll teach you it but it's a short amount of time. like what an hour ? and then the next day its another new one and then straight into sparring. as apposed to a few hours of wrestling practice. so had more time to learn something and getting it down.from my experience.

    I have about 12 years experience in Judo, Karate & Kickboxing (brown belt), Boxing and MMA but coming to a BJJ/SW class was SOOO confusing. Though there were drills it was basically just showing quickly some moves then figuring the details out by yourself and then - maybe - having luck to get a grip of the trainer and ask 2 questions until it went to the next move... this continued for like 5 moves and then it straight went to rolling ...
    In every other style (even in the MMA classes) it was always a systematic approach of breaking moves down into parts, training them with attention to detail and combining them later - especially when showing it to less experienced guys. But in BJJ it was like: you go there, there and there and then you have your mount ... even for the non-BJJ moves like the double leg (which left my rather unsatisfied ... since I was rather rusty and struggled with the basic setup ) ... After rushing through those techniques they just went "So, now roll ..." for the last 30 minutes ...
    In no other style I have encountered this mentality. Nobody in the striking styles would ever teach a Jab or 1-2 combo in such a manner - since in most cases you will have much more work later to correct and "unlearn" all the little flaws that sneak in when you rush through such techniques....

    Jiu Jitsu wouldn't be nearly as popular if they ran like this. I'm 100% interested in finding a school and training Jiu Jitsu I'm 100% not interested in attending anything like an in season wrestling practice other than as a coach. Wrestling season/practice is a grind and come January-February spin drills and stand up return drills are a fucking nightmare lol. Find me a grown man that will pay 90$ a month to drill stand up returns, spin drills, follow drills, etc. Year around fucking way, I'm getting negative feelings even writing it lol. I also, from my very small understanding of JJ, don't think its as necessary. JJ is a lot of thinking about your position where as wrestling is more just reacting and to be able to just react you have to drill, if that makes sense. But Ben has good points.

    So happy to have met Ben and Max at some Wisconsin tourneys. Kid was a beast in High school and every one in the local school districts knew who Ben was max are.
    Rumor always heard was that the Dad had the whole basement for the two of them to come home and always wrestle against one another.
    Keep on driving strong BEN.

    There’s actually an easy solution to this. I go to Kimura in boston with my cousin.... yes... they teach like that, somewhat work on new drill/technique then roll the rest of the class. Guess what, me and my cousin have a mat in our basement and further drill the techniques on our own time. Then We actually excel in learning new technique and have fun rolling at Kimura. in other words not enough time to practice/drill in class, then simply do it elsewhere during your time.

    Water cutting sounds like a damaging thing to me. Being dehydrated at any time is a bad thing. It is damaging your internal organs, making your heart work harder, your brain is under functioning. So I think water cutting should never be done. Not sure what a better answer is but water cutting ain't it.

    I’m so impressed that I listened to this guy! I’m a blue belt in karate and wrestled in high school. He is spitting straight FACTS!!! I’ve rolled with people in different locations. There has to be a balance. The average guy isn’t disciplined enough to go over technique back to back over and over without rolling about 50% of the time. In order to continue training you have to keep the doors open. You need money to keep the doors open and that means keeping your students engaged.

    Top Wrestlers are obviously hardcore but they are both off base with a bunch of things in this argument...first off, High-level jiu-jitsu guys train like animals, especially these days. There are blue belts now training full time and going around the world to compete and they drill like crazy. Joe was never a competitor in JJ and I remember watching a video of Askren getting DESTROYED by Marcelo Garcia so to say wrestlers are standouts above the rest is just not true. Also, Joe saying Muay Thai doesn't embrace the grind like wrestling is just retarded....those dudes take more punishment than maybe any other sport. Proper Thai boxers have well over 100 fights by the time they are 20 and getting shins, knees, and elbows bashed against your body is no fucking joke.
    I like Joe but he gets on these trips where he thinks his opinion is gold and sometimes he's kinda full of shit.

  • Future Society Of Gentlemen

    Please trace the entymology and history of ain't wrestling, and it was modernized for matches. Note to commenters, not Ben. Each individual has to adapt techniques that suits their purpose and goals. One does not have to stick to the script when on your own path. It is the BJJ instructor's job (you are paying them) to give you all the basic skills and drills required according to the curriculum. Once you've reached your limit, then by all means drop out.
