    Basically - keep doing BJJ as much as possible.

    Any cardio or strength training will help (unless you injure yourself, haha). I prefer cross-trainer for cardio and basic powerlifting for strength.

    The number one thing to improve apparent 'cardio' for BJJ beginners is to relax and breath while you're rolling.

    This is such good advice. When you're new it's easy to try to go flat out every second of every round and then feel like your cardio is terrible. Expend energy wisely and you will SMASH!

    Yep. Combine that with better tech knowledge thru mat-time and u'll be more efficient with what you have.

    Having said that, working kettlebells not only increases your attributes, the odd shape of the KB and how it travels forces you to learn how to behave under it correctly in a way that translates a lot to grappling / BJJ. Good luck.

    Depending on how new people are, I think the relax advice can be a bit pointless.

    If someone has virtually no technique, what's the point in them relaxing? They're just gonna get wrecked anyway... much better for them to fight back however they can (that way they build cardio and get used to fighting hard). Also, a newb doesn't really know what you mean by relax - they will end up fighting loose in my experience.

    Once they know enough to have something they can try from most common positions, and know generally how to escape, that's when they should start trying to relax. Especially in bad positions.
