Brazilian  Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is an enormously popular martial art. This is why you see so many BJJ schools are opening all over the world. Of course, the presence of a school is not the main indication of its value. The number of students enrolled in the school is. When you look closer at these students, you will see many training as frequently as possible and others train when their schedule permits. Since BJJ schools often offer unlimited training per month, there is a lot of flexibility available in terms of how often a student can train.

But, how many days a week should a student train? This is an important question that needs to be asked and answered. There are active and athletic students that train virtually every day of the week and there are also those that have to train far less because training too often leads to them becoming sore and somewhat broken down.

Really, you do not want to become sore or too beat up to train. That does no one any good. When you are over-trained, you end up missing days of class. Does that help your ability to progress in BJJ? Absolutely not!

Again, different people’s bodies will react in a completely different manner to their training regimen. There is, however, a safe medium that you can follow in order to be sure that you avoid over-training. That medium would be playing it safe and training about three days a week.

These three days should not be consecutive. The reason for this is you want to at least one rest day in between the three workout days because your body will need time to recuperate and heal. When you do not get the proper amount of rest, the body will start to break down. This is where all those aches and pains come from. Those that are older BJJ practitioners will be more than familiar with such pains which is why they might be more willing to take such breaks than younger BJJ’ers. However, just because you are young does not mean you are invulnerable. Over-training can affect anyone at any age.

There are going to be those serious minded BJJ players that want to train each and every single day. They reason they wish to do so is not all that difficult to figure out. They just want to become very good at the art of BJJ. Here is a little news for those that have such desires in mind: frequency does not always equate with quality.

The true value of the class will be in the quality of the instruction combined with a good attitude for learning. In short, you need to enroll in a good class and then make the most out of it when you are in the class. This means you should py very close attention and ask pertinent questions when they arise. (Of course, you should ask them at the appropriate time) Follow these very simple steps and you will find it is a lot easier to get the most out of your three day a week training plan.

UFC 133 is airing on PPV tomorrow, August 6th at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia PA.  The main event is going to be one to remember.  Former Light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans square off in what looks to be a good match.  Tito Ortiz is coming off a big win against Ryan Bader a few weeks ago at UFC 132.  After several back injuries and a devastating losing streak; what looked to be a diminishing career is starting to gain some sparks after that win.

While Ortiz is fresh off a win at UFC 132, Rashad Evans has had a long absence from the ring.  Will this have an impact on the fight?  Probably not.  Rashad “Suga” Evans only has one professional loss, against Lyoto Machada, holding 15(wins) 1(Loss) 1(Draw)– that draw being the last time Ortiz and Evans met at UFC 73.

You can expect a good ground fight from these two because wrestling is both of their strong points.  If Evans’ is smart, keeping it a stand-up for a while will prove beneficial since Ortiz’s strong point is definitely on the ground.  Both contenders are strong with wrestling; however, Evans has one-punch knock out power and clearly a speed advantage.

Both contenders have a good shot at winning– both have some handicaps against them.

So, who will win?
