    Ι definitely disagree with that.

    Sure, focusing more on grappling and less on wrestling and striking could make sense. You can do, say, 4 grappling sessions per week and only 2 striking and wrestling sessions each. But doing zero striking for a few years, while focusing on grappling... there are many good reasons why that is not ideal.

    Imo, periodising your focus would make the most sense for someone starting out. Spend a few months focusing on grappling while doing, say, 1-2 sessions of wrestling and striking, then spend a few months focusing on striking while doing, say, 1-2 sessions of grappling and striking, and so on.

    Training swimming is in NO WAY more beneficial to your goal of becoming a great fighter than training some other aspect of fighting or just using that time to re-commit to the aspects of fighting you're already training.

    That's not what he meant by posture, but if you're training with physiotherapists they should let you know about postural/movement problems you have. Super important. Physios are the right people to train with.
