BJJ and Covid-19

You do know C19 is contagious, it’s not fun to have, and the vaxx isn’t 100% perfect?

With stand up arts, all you do is strike and keep your distance. But BJJ is wrestling, which means you have to be close to practice it. It looks like the answer is obvious. I might need to buy some DVDs and a grappling dummy to practice at home. It’s going to freaking suck because I like practicing with live partners.

To each his own, I guess and I’m not going to criticize your decision, but if you are going to practice BJJ with a dummy, you might as well forget about it and train striking (with whatever level of protection makes you comfortable).

At least you’d be doing something effective.

Little known secret - most folks kept training with no masks no vaccines. If you’re not okay with it stay home.

I caught covid in March when it was relatively new. It didn’t affect me to much . I had flus that were worse than covid. I know the same can’t be said for other people . I went back to training a month after and haven’t had any signs of it. My wife and daughter caught covid a few months ago and I tested negative . I’m not saying I’m super immuned but I’m pretty dam close lol

Just think of all the bacteria you’ve shared over the years rolling, sweat dropping in your mouth, sometimes sharing blood from cuts, people at gyms are notorious for having ringworm and shit.

It’s just the risk of being a human being. You can die any day from thousands of different ways. Life is too short to waste it away.

The Covid 19 propaganda made people scared & content with just simply staying home in their houses. You might be alive but that is not living, it’s just simply existing. Get out and live while you still can

Academy closed for like 2 months. Professor is a multi time time world champion and he had to go work at Amazon just to keep the place open. After that, we all said fuck it, trained as if things were normal and if you were going to cry about it, go do bjj somewhere else.
