Ah you got me watching Yamashita videos now. That is one fat boy who is just beautiful to watch, dont care what anyone else says.
yep, I think they should look to get fit and cut weight before they are allowed to do technical work and spar. BJJ gyms should have one night of fitness and strngth training which these porkies can attend..

I think its a positive approach, they wont gas so early , less likely to get injured, ets etc etc....
OK please dont confuse FAT and FIT, they are not the same thing. You can be fat and fit and you can be a comedy midget and still unfit.
no, you can be podgy and fit, ......not fat , or porky and fit....
Its debatable of course, and it depends in the sport you are training for. Some Rugby forwards I would definitley call full on fat, and yet still fit. I would agree there is probably an upper limit of fatness where you could still be called fit, although Sumo wrestlers would probably disagree (and I would not argue with them myself)
Beautifull knock out from Butterbean in this clip. Would you tell him to his face that he should not be allowed to box? OK he was not at his fattest at this point, but still beyond "podgy".
IMO warm ups should not only warm up your body but also prepare your mind for the session. I really think warm ups should be a minimum of 15min long. Don't know about you guys but after a hards work it takes at least that long for me to get switched back on mentally and attentive enough to learn techniques.
You shouldn't be so so tired after a warm up that you can't think straight but you can't come in cold either because IMO your concentration levels won't be where it needs to be. Most injuries/accidents on the mat occur when people lose focus on what they are doing.
For the fatties if you can't make it through a 15 min warm up, you should suck it up, get some fitness and stop being such sisses lol.
Love the idea of a conditioning class btw.
Does it for us **flex**
Bateman, I am going to get you in Kami Shiho Gatame and use my gut to pin down your head.
See how you like them apples.
haha , i train with guys that dont like warm ups , to be honest i like a 30 min session of fitness before i roll. my brain cant take more than 30 mins of technical training a session to be honest..
Perhaps it obvious to him you dont? Maybe if everyone from the class came with a decent amount of fitness, maybe, just maybe an instructor might feel that the class didnt need it? and he might focus more on technique?

Perhaps they are not as astute in the arena of "physical fitness" as yourself, and they could do with the insight?
Perhaps the Instructor felt that the greatest need for the Class as a whole was fitness. Apparently the Instructor knows best?
