    Glad you enjoyed being back.

    When I left uni, i didn't train for 2 years but when I started again in 2007 I was surprised at how natural it felt and how much i realised i'd missed it. I'd well and truly caught the bug again.

    Unfortunately, with moving i'm now struggling to juggle work and travel commitments and but making training, in some way shape or form, as often as I can. I never want to give it up again totally though as now i know what i'd be missing.

    Hi,

    10 years ago a cunsultant surgeon told me I had to give up judo (which made sense as I had a fractured spinous process - I had snapped one of the little knobbles off my lower spine). I made the mistake at that point of giving up any grappling activity, including BJJ. Obviously, in 1998 opportunities for BJJ training were limited in this country, but I had been attending seminars and had found little groups who were beginning to train regularly. I gave away all my judo and wrestling books and stopped training.

    To put it bluntly, in many ways my life turned to shit at that point. Last September, after 9 years in the wilderness, I wandered into Bushido in Nottingham and have been training several times a week ever since.

    Curiously, over the last 6 months various things have turned around for me and I am enjoying life again.

    My wife can not understand why I would want to start rolling around again (she is a very good Thai boxer), but is ever supportive of me and bought me a nice Krugans kimono for Christmas.

    For what it is worth, I believe that any type of wrestling activity is good for you - not just on the physical level (is there anything much better for general fitness?) - but for you soul as well, putting things into perspective and helping you forge your will.
