comment What is the best way to improve your skills in BJJ (gi and no-gi) and become a black belt in short period?
@BadaBoom Gianni Grippo, newly promoted black belt, says at about 4:00 of this video that during his early days of training as an adolescent, he'd train an hour of gi and an hour of no-gi, 6 days a week. I think if anything he does more now as an elite adult competitor.

@BadaBoom I have no sources, it's just what is commonly recognized and stated casually. Yes they roll 5-6 days a week, though perhaps not in every workout. They manage it with a lot of effort, sacrifice, and tradeoffs. Every person's situation is different but it is very difficult to train 10+ times a week if you have a job...but I hear of people that manage it.

comment What are the techniques a white belt should master to become a blue belt in BJJ?
@BadaBoom To me, that means that focusing on good posture, survival in each position, and escapes means that instead of freaking out when put in a bad position the student can think calmly and rationally about what they should be doing instead of spazzing out trying to do "anything, oh god get me out of here what's going on"

comment Training Body Reading Without Sparring
Why no sparring? That's generally the best way to get good at recognizing tells.

@BartBurg The bandana was for non-combat sports in my case. For grappling I just cut my hair or deal with it. I haven't seen a good solution other cornrows, which defeats the purpose of long hair in the first place.

In what martial art are hair grabs legal in sport? I don't think that's part of the question.

comment How does a non-grappler train to be ready to avoid grappling in a real-world situation?
@bcmoney I see the confusion. Regardless of the billing, it wasn't seriously considered to be "best of the best". Royce wasn't a BJJ champion--that was more Rickson and Royler. Regardless, we've strayed from the point: it's patently absurd to claim that pure striking is a reliable defense against grappling.

comment How does a non-grappler train to be ready to avoid grappling in a real-world situation?
@bcmoney When asked about a hypothetical fight against Royce, Mike Tyson replied, "It doesn’t matter. If I hit him with a good punch, OK, but if he gets hold of me and in a position I’m not familiar with, I’m not going to win the fight. I would have to be equipped with grappling skills as well. Gracie changed the whole game around. To be involved in this kind of fight, you have to know that style right off the bat."
