I took my first lesson of BJJ and its real cool...but I just love boxing alot more. IMO, Boxing is more technical and enjoyable and you really need more talent.

But isn't that the beauty of something like BJJ. Almost anybody can become master if they apply themselves, where as boxing you almost have to have some god given talent to really excell.

I have 5 amateur fights 3-2. Not to good a record but I blame that on my conditioning. Without conditioning I dont care how skilled you think you are, you will not be able to apply it against a decent opponent.

I did BJJ for a year and achieved a Blue Belt under Leo Dalla (Loyd Irvin's BJJ Master). And yes, if you are fairly intelligent and in fairly decent shape, you can learn BJJ and be able to apply it fluently in a fight. This is an art that requires a lot of mental application as well as the physical, that's why I will put BJJ on top of my "to master" diciplines.

Not to down boxing, but anyone can swing and connect at any given moment, but not just anyone can keep a focused plan of assault once the fight goes to the ground.

A good fighter needs to be well rounded, for this reason I dont count boxing out ( I train in it also when getting ready for fights)
