No. The only asset is if you have to training less BJJ to training Muay Thai. If you will train MT and will have the same hours of training of BJJ this is not a issue. As a martial art you need spend time training. The longer you practice the luckiest you are. Rickson Gracie

While it is essential that you get enough protein (and calories by the way) in your daily diet if you want to build muscle, it turns out that the timing of it is not important at all. Studies show that consuming protein right before, after, or during a weight-training workout doesn't gain you anything. This is despite what you've heard from weightlifters and ...

I think there is a 'superman' complex that many beginners suffer from. A notion that they are doing well in class maybe won a competition or two. Get to a real fight and the natural instinct to run our be aggressive is lost to trying to figure out whether to throw a punch or a kick. This, along with semi or light contact training can give a false sense of ...

The best way to train for martial arts is to do basic strength and conditioning alongside your chosen art. Basic conditioning means a mix of slower/longer runs with sprints. Basic strength training means fundamental resistance exercises (squats, lunges, deadlifts, pull-ups, pressing motions) using something like a barbell or dumbbells. This changes only ...

After a judo class I'm more concerned with getting carbohydrate for glycogen depletion than I am with protein for muscle growth. A mix of both after class is fine. However, it's good to be skeptical of supplements and protein powders. They are above all a heavily-marketed consumer product for which advertising is trying to convince you that you need. Most ...

If you are uncertain about yourself and feel insecure, you may be thinking "oh no I'm going to be mugged" while walking about late at night. This self-hypnosis creates an air of uncertainty and insecurity, which ...

The first time I did (Aikido) randori and had three people charge me from across the mats was a particularly eye opening experience. Some of the lessons learned fairly quickly during those drills were: Watch the lines of attack. You have to keep track of where everyone is going and at what angle they can attack you from (hopefully not from behind) Stay ...

As has already been mentioned, fighting in a group is difficult, since the dynamics are different in comparison to a 1:1 fight. I'd like to point out that the multiple-opponent fight also has some challenges for the attacker. Faced with a hostile group, trained to fight in a coordinated, coherent manner is very different from fighting a group of people used ...

My martial art is boxing so my answer is from that perspective. Generally speaking you will want to do interval training to improve your cardiovascular stamina, and relatively light weights to build endurance in your arms, legs and core. Do this in rounds (3 minutes on 1 minute break) for 12-15 rounds. Some examples of what you can do include: Skipping. ...

I record general concepts, specific techniques, and things trainers tell me I specifically need to work on. I also record competition results and string together game plans. I used Google Docs for a while which is really good, but I needed a bit more structure as the 40 page doc grew, so I created an app which allows me to record all the same info ...
