    No man I just always thought military people would have amazing cardio irrespective of any thing else so I was surprised how these young 20 something Marines tire out so quickly. It just went against the notion I had

    I didn't "rag doll" or even beat them at bjj at all as Im new myself

    Shame on you :)

    Please excuse my bro-science:
    Grappling cardio is a different beast. Smoking a pack a day I used to out cardio other military guys at my military judo club who would kill me on run times.....because I had 5 years of wrestling years before vs their 1-3 years of judo. I already had the mat awareness, muscle memory and calm to use my energy more efficiently.

    Second the Military is a microcosm of society as a whole. Your average Grunt, Jarhead, Squid, Flyboy or Puddle Pirate is just a human who chose to serve. We're not superheroes.
