A word of advice, if you are ever teaching English for a living in Poland and ypu wish to keep training... forget it!

The one MA club in town which trained at good hours for me has stopped. A TJJ club where I had recently started learning TJJ.

Working evening hours as I do all the martial arts clubs in town finish training before I finish work. When I die I will go to heaven because hell is certainly living in a place where you have judo, Kung Fu, karate, TKD, BJJ, TJJ, VT and more... and none of them have sessions later than 20.30 (when I finish work). Life is cruel!

Why dont you have at least one private a week then? I know its expensive but id rather have one lesson a week than none.

I hadn't thought of that, but to be honest it probably wouldn't be possible to find a place to train, especially one with mats. My work hours don't help, either. I'm pondering on the judo club if they do adult classes on a weekend.

Im sure if you can arrange a private with your old club you can do it early in the morning or late at night .. Ask you never know.

Wow, I'm about to pop my BJJ cherry.
The TJJ folded for some reason and i've not been training for some months. However, one of my teaching contracts has been suspended for a couple of months leaving me free on fridays. There is a Vale Tudo club which does BJJ on Fridays at 16.00, so guess what I'm gonna do this friday...

Train stand up you dont require mats. Or practice ground work on grass its the next best thing to having no soft landings inside.

So that's stand-up with no take-downs??? good thinking but too restrictive.

When the TJJ club folded it was winter... there was no grass. Sorry, but training in the snow at -12C I'll leave to Aleksander Karelin.

BTW, what kind of thing would 'stand up' entail?
Grass... yep, I agree. I used to do Backhold Wrestling and we used to compete on the grass. Like I said, tho... it was winter here...
