comment How should a BJJ practitioner run?
@Sardathrion This article is a bit jargony for my taste but it makes the case. Rippetoe & Kilgore's Practical Programming is an easy but rather thorough book on the subject. A more thorough book, closer to the physiology but still focused on sport, is Kurz' Science of Sports Training. But generally most strength programs that address conditioning will mention the fact that the body's recovery resources are limited and that strength and power are best trained in the absence of abundant long slow distance running.

comment How to avoid gassing out during a BJJ or Grappling tournament?
-1 Gassing in a tournament is far from an indication of a heart problem. (If it happened in class then that would be more a possibility.) I disagree with your conditioning advice, and your advice about overtraining is taken from strength training and misapplied to BJJ.

@Sardathrion Most people who run long distances have a harder time maintaining muscle mass and explosiveness. This is fairly well-understood exercise science.

comment What are the long term consequences of practicing judo?
Morote-gari was not banned because of how it lands people. Other throws have been banned because of injury potential (e.g. kani basami, poor variations of uchimata) but morote-gari is not one of them, as it was banned as part of a blanket ban on leg grabs.
