Jiu-Jitsu in/near Howard County?

Who's training jiu-jitsu and where are you training? I've been listening to the Jocko Willink podcasts and he's finally talked me into getting some training.

CPMMA is good. My brother and I used them for a while.

http://www.cpmma.net

$50/month gets you as many classes as you want. I focused on Striking and my brother mainly did BJJ. Good people there and the owner, Josh, is a solid dude.

Without a doubt it'd be conquest. I've been doing their muay thai program and have seen enough of their jiujitsu to be confident in it.

This is a quality place. I've known some people from there for a long while.

http://www.combatju-jitsu.com/

Ju-Jitsu Dojo of Columbia

It's not one of the strictly groundfighting or octagon kind of places. It has a traceable lineage: http://www.combatju-jitsu.com/lineage.htm

Try it out. Keep an open mind. Try other things too. When you get some free time, explore the history of the arts you're considering. Also consider 'combat' arts.

I personally love jiu jitsu. I like the art part of it. For self defense, it is going to depend on the situation and the attacker. If it's a family member, I want to be gentle. I want to walk away first. If I can't, I'll use jiu jitsu to restrain them and maybe because they went a little too far, I want to provide them with some temporary discomfort and a small degree of embarrassment.

On the other hand (if for some reason I'm taken by surprise by multiple attackers), I'm going to go with a hard style (not a competition martial art like boxing, muay thai, or tae kwon do) and end things quickly, violating all of the competition rules in place.

I think one should practice both hard and soft styles, so that one can have the option of being gentle (wrestling) or decisive (boxing without rules) based upon the unfortunate and unlikely situation that they have to protect themselves.

Distance is the key. Keep your distance (and angle). If you run away, no one loses. If you're surprised and it's very close, any martial art reflex will beat a knife or pistol draw attempt provided that you have a follow up or a withdrawal reflex.

Sign up and have fun with the classes, but always explore and be open to learning more.

This is really why I am really attracted to Jiu-Jitsu. I trained Krav Maga for awhile, but it is all or mostly striking based. So with Krav you are either not engaged with anyone or you are punching/kicking them in the groin. There is no middle ground, you're either at 0 or turned up to 11. That might be fine for a SHTF scenario but for everyday self defense that is not practical.
