TJJ, definitely.

Check the techniques section on this site for an idea of the TJJ syllabus- beats fannying around with katas and poncy high kicks, which is all a bit too much like ballet for my liking. Except without the hot flexible chicks in tights.

:-p

Its True i just couldnt handle it......... far too demanding both physically and mentally. :-p

On a serious note out of your choices its the best, bjj would be better alot better, there is just no comparing the two bjj is light years ahead.

BJJ clubs are thin on the ground..took me months to find one. But im having my second visit to wolfslair Monday hopefully get a couple of sessions in next week ready to eat ice cream at the Seni:-D

Get entered you fool. I'm well unfit at the minute, in fact I'm more than one category heavier than I was last year, but I'm still going in for it. You'll only regret not entering once you get there.

Or maybe you'll regret entering when someone breaks you arm.

Either way, get yourself in.

Once you watch some of the fights you'll be dieing to get on the mat yourself - but I can see where ya coming from, will be good to just settle your nerves watching a match before stepping on the mat.

I never did, just dived right in there, but either way, it won't be long before you're competing! :-)

I didn't start TKD until I was about 25, didn't start Backhold wrestling until 34 and JJ until 39. A lot depends on your previous fitness and health. JJ is good at thirty and I'd say it is still possible to keep doing the techniques effectively at a later age (as opposed to high jumping kicks)
See how well I block all your

Maybe next year for the seni..... defo later in the year at another one. Although my training has now took a set back due to exams! But should be clear in two weeks and then back to getting my arse kicked!
