just kidding... i think its becuase judo, being a lot like wrestling, is strenuous on the body, so muscles need time to heal or else you get weaker

Sounds about right.

But seriously, it depends on the club, someone might be running classes just out of boredom - let's face it, you ain't gonna teach anyone to a decent standard at just once a week, so why even bother in the first place.

well, BJJ is tough on the muscles, but ju jitsu involves alot more throwing, so the practivers probably have to lift weights to build upper body strength ( u do in wrestling) BJJ doesnt require much muscle, it just comes in handy.

Considering I know of a number of clubs which train at least twice to three times a week I don't think the tiring theory is sound. I also know wrestling clubs which train more than once a week.

Could be, in the words of my wrestling coach (when he could only train once a week in a particular sports centre), it doesn't generate as much money as a lycra class so they don't give the club more than one session a week. Could be the club has a sister club to make up the extra sessions.

Said this before & say it again, I've done karate, trad jj, now do Judo & BJJ.

Karate - damaging to body but not really tough to train & boring.

Trad jj - good fun, reasonably hard graft, can be tough on body.

Judo - high degree of natural ability reqd, extremely tough on body, regular injury & high probability of serious injury, need strength & good fitness, good judo is very technical.

BJJ - Great fun, low injury risk, physically demanding in terms of fatigue (if sparing an equivalent standard opponent), very technical.

I've just started Judo, my class is available three to four times a week. Due to me being a beginner, I often strain muscles I wasn't supposed to be using anyway, so I manage once a week at the moment. It hurts
